AWE, Inc., a leader of digital learning solutions for PreK–Grade 3, announced today that it has become a corporate supporter of Digital Promise, an independent, bipartisan nonprofit organization authorized by Congress to accelerate innovation in education.
Digital Promise is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) signed into law by President Bush in 2008 and launched in late 2011 by President Obama. It has worked to advance breakthrough technology in education through several initiatives, including fostering national research partnerships, introducing digital technology tools into school districts, and creating solutions for the technology procurement process. A key component of the organization is the League of Innovative Schools, an initiative which facilitates partnerships between a national coalition of cutting edge schools, top research institutions, and leading education technology providers to harness innovation and drive better results for students.
“We are proud to support Digital Promise and be a part of this historic time in education,” says Karl Thornton, President and CEO of AWE. “The existence of this organization shows that our country’s leaders are serious about giving schools access to innovative technology tools that can enhance education for all students.”
“We believe our Student Learning Center™ product line represents the most complete digital learning solution available for young learners, PreK–Grade 3. The depth and breadth of our content across all subject areas, coupled with our in-depth, standards-driven progress reporting suite, enables schools to deliver personalized instruction that is as engaging and effective for students as it is easy to manage and informative for teachers and administrators.”
