Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) May 06, 2013
Assessment Technology Incorporated (ATI) and eInstruction have teamed up to create a unique and innovative technological advancement that transforms the classroom into a dynamic, 21st century learning environment.
This newly released integration builds on the combined strengths of Galileo® K-12 Online and Insight 360™ in ways that further empower teachers as educators and students as learners. It offers a seamless and flexible approach to the assessment of student learning and the provision of differentiated, interactive instruction aimed at increasing student achievement and mastery of standards.
“ATI’s Galileo K-12 Online combined with eInstruction’s Insight 360 offers teachers an at-your-fingertips approach to instruction, assessment, and reporting from a number of mobile, web-enabled devices,” said John Bergan, President ATI.
Districts of any size can benefit from the Galileo and Insight 360 connectivity as it provides a system for delivering both instruction and assessments, tracking student responses, and recording results. Teachers have access to both instructional content reflecting Common Core State Standards and a variety of assessments that measure standards mastery including that associated with instructional dialogs. Teachers are also provided, on their computer or other electronic device, a direct view of student responses captured by Insight 360.
With student responses being captured by Insight 360 and recorded into Galileo K-12 Online, the resulting data is reported the same way as assessment data gathered using other methods, such as that from assessments taken online by students in a computer lab or offline using scannable answer sheets. With Galileo K-12 Online and Insight 360, any type of assessment can be administered from instructional effectiveness pre-tests and post tests and district benchmark assessments to classroom quizzes or even interactive classroom lessons and instructional dialogs.
“The continued integration of our products with top technology providers such as ATI enhances the tools an educator uses to drive learning and achievement in the classroom,” said Rich Fennessy, President and CEO of eInstruction. “An added bonus of this partnership is that we are both Arizona-based education companies with a strong commitment to serving schools and districts in our own community.”
Galileo K-12 Online is a fully integrated instructional improvement and instructional effectiveness system. Insight 360 is the all-in-one classroom instruction system. The systems facilitate and simplify instructional content planning and delivery and real-time assessment. The powerful, easy-to-use systems enable educators to boost student engagement and gain immediate results on comprehension through formative and summative assessment using a variety of mobile devices such as eInstruction clickers, smartphones, tablets, and the iPad®.
