So I am here at ISTE – the US’s largest Education Technology Conference being help in Philadelphia, PA this year. There are so many cool things going on here and I will be posting an update here at the end of the show in the next day or so, but I wanted to highlight one thing really cool happening with one of our publisher friends; Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
Some exciting things are happing in the publishing world! Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, a global education and learning company, announced a solution offering today based on the Intel-powered convertible classmate PC at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference in Philadelphia. This solution will empower students and teachers with a broad range of interactive digital content. In addition Skills Tutor, a leading skills improvement program plans to offer the classmates as a promotional offer to include PCs developed for students with their content sales. This is an innovative new approach adding value to software sales and provide schools with the purpose built hardware they really need.
Skills Tutor will team up with Equus Computer Systems, a local US based computer manufacturer selling the Intel Learning Series line of classmate PC products, to configure, deliver and provide post-sale support for the PCs.
Skills Tutor program highlights:
- All digital interactive online skills building program
- Wide range of subject areas including reading, writing, language arts and math
- Built-in quizzes and tests
- Teacher tools
- Professional development services for educators
We are excited and pleased that two of out Intel Learning Series Alliance member, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt together with Equus Computer Systems, have taken this leadership step forward…and this is just another example of a great holistic education solution based on the Intel powered classmate PCs!
