"Based on the pilot, our teachers indicated that having the ability to provide immediate review or acceleration activities by standard based on student performance has the potential to be a game changer." Jason Naile, Director of Instructional Technology and Media at Forsyth County Schools, GA
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (PRWEB) May 21, 2018
SchoolCity proudly announces a partnership with SAFARI Montage to bring the expansive quality resources from their Learning Object Repository (LOR) into the newly announced Personalized Review Assignment (PRA) tool within the SchoolCity SUITE platform. This alliance reinforces both company’s strong commitment to the IMS Global interoperability mission and dramatically advances the drive to Personalized Learning for school districts across the country.
“SAFARI Montage users will be able to access high-quality rich media resources in the SAFARI Montage LOR from within the SchoolCity Personalized Review Assignment feature. What’s really cool is that the resources will be pulled in automatically using the state standard benchmark being assessed to personalize the learning path for each student”, said Tim Beekman, President and Co-founder, SAFARI Montage.
The PRA has just completed testing for inclusion in our SUITE 6.0 July Release. And the feedback is exciting, including praise from Jason Naile, Director of Instructional Technology and Media at Forsyth County Schools, GA, stating “SchoolCity PRAs have the potential to provide great value to our teachers and students. Based on the pilot, our teachers indicated that having the ability to provide immediate review or acceleration activities by standard based on student performance has the potential to be a game changer. We are excited to see the addition of PRAs to the SchoolCity platform in the future and look forward to working with SchoolCity as a partner on this work.”
Vaseem Anjum, President and CEO of SchoolCity, says “The power of our new Personalized Review Assignment tool is supercharged by the quality of the SAFARI Montage resources. Students will be excited in the ownership of their own learning.”
