In collaboration with Microsoft, Pearson – a provider of educational materials and services – takes students one step closer to achieving personalized digital learning by introducing several Windows 8 apps for schools to use during the 2014-2015 year.
As the Microsoft in Education blog reports, those apps are: Pearson’s Common Core System of Courses, TestNav, and reading apps iLit and eText.
The Common Core System of Courses is the first curriculum built for a digital personalized learning environment that is aligned to the new standards for college and career readiness. Pearson’s core reading program, iLit, offers students personalized learning support with built-in reward systems. TestNav 8 allows schools to administer tests online and on demand, and eText gives students interactive and intuitive features such navigation controls, enhanced search functions, personal highlighting, bookmarks and note-taking.
Head over to the Microsoft in Education blog to read more about Microsoft’s collaboration with Pearson and to see how these apps have already succeeded in classrooms.
