Exploros™ Collaborates with Lenovo™ to Improve Device-Enabled Instruction
Boston, MA, May 8, 2020. Exploros, the K12 learning experience platform, is excited to collaborate with Lenovo, a global leader in educational technology, as a classroom orchestration and remote learning solution for schools in North and South America.
As a teacher-guided, social instructional platform, Exploros assists teachers in staging powerful learning experiences, whether the learning takes place in a physical or virtual classroom. Exploros engages all students and gives every student a voice. This has led to dramatic increases in state testing scores. In a case study based on the results of 19K middle school students, 94% of campuses using Exploros Social Studies saw their state testing scores increase and the average gain was an astounding 29%. By contrast, recently released National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) scores indicate a decline in national Social Studies proficiency.
Exploros currently offers curriculum bundles in Social Studies, English Language Arts, and Digital Citizenship with more courses in development. These bundles contain hundreds of pedagogically strong learning experiences that take about a class period to teach. Teachers pick and choose from a lesson playlist based on the learning standard targets and topics they want to address. Students use devices to contribute — brainstorming, sharing ideas, taking polls, completing social graphic organizers, and more. These activities then fuel classroom dialog. Exploros automatically provides Classroom AnalyticsTM to assist teachers in personalizing the learning.
“We believe that Lenovo and Exploros can deliver on the promise of educational technology. It’s one thing to have devices and another to have an effective rollout and long-term plan that leads to teacher confidence and student achievement. Lenovo is a leader in quality devices and Exploros streamlines implementation, helping both teachers and students succeed,” says Bradley Heilman, Exploros CEO. “It’s a powerful combination to advance student-centered, data-driven instruction.”
“Lenovo is pleased to partner with Exploros to enhance instructional continuity during this time of increased remote learning and beyond. The combination of our built-for-purpose education devices and Exploros' tech-enabled curriculum with in-app teacher video offers educators a powerful way to engage students,” said Richard Henderson, Director of Global Education Solutions, Intelligent Devices Group, Lenovo.
In addition to the Lenovo collaboration, Exploros is a Google Cloud Partner and an Amazon EdStart Partner and is pioneering initiatives in data interoperability and machine learning teaching assistance.
