Mark Anderson, CEO and publisher of Strategic News Service(TM) (SNS), has been named CEO of SNS Project Inkwell. The goal of Project Inkwell is to accelerate the deployment of appropriate technologies onto K-12 desktops worldwide. The Project Inkwell consortium includes IBM, Microsoft, Red Hat, IDEO, Gateway, Clearwire, Promethean, QED, Steljes, Inspiration Software, and many other educational technology and content companies.

implementing one-to-one in pre-university classrooms is the most important single step a state or nation can take in improving economic performance.

    Project Inkwell was the first international industry group organized to (re)design appropriate K-12 technology, the result of years of planning with vendors, teachers, administrators, and students; it remains the leading multi-vendor effort in this industry.

Mark Anderson, an internationally renowned technology-industry CEO who has served as Project Inkwell Chair since its founding in 2004, believes that "implementing one-to-one in pre-university classrooms is the most important single step a state or nation can take in improving economic performance."

In support of both "super learners" and less-advantaged students, Project Inkwell's mission is to provide students and teachers with access to global digitized knowledge, and to take the risk out of implementing this change as states and countries progress along this inevitable path. This includes improving test scores, as well as less tangible metrics: keeping kids in school, reducing absenteeism, reducing teacher churn, removing inequities in education, and promoting more active engagement among students and teachers.

Project Inkwell is endorsed by the U.S. Departments of Education and Commerce, the World Bank, and an expanding roster of U.S. governors.

Project Inkwell has met all of its scheduled goals to date, including the design of a new teaching and learning device.
