Secure Computing Environments & The Shodor Education Foundation To Launch Proven Program To Turn Around America’s Poor Math Performance

March 2, 2011

This week Secure Computing Environments (SCE) will be introducing their educational product, Interactivate + at Intel’s Learning Series Summit that is being hosted at the Palazzo in Las Vegas NV. SCE teamed up with The Shodor Education Foundation to create Interactivate + which is an innovative and intensive math intervention program that fills gaps in an individual’s math background and utilizes a blended approach that balances in-class instruction with the Web-based content of Shodor’s Interactivate.

El Dorado Hills, CA (PRWEB) March 1, 2011

Secure Computing Environments (SCE), headquartered in El Dorado Hills outside of Sacramento, CA, announced today that it is taking a stand on poor high school and college math scores and remedial education with its newly developed Interactivate + Intervention program.

The product will be launched at the Intel Learning Series Alliance Summit that is being held at The Palazzo in Las Vegas, NV from March 1-4 2011. The educational content will be provided by the Shodor Education Foundation who has great success at the elementary through college level for over fifteen years. Robert M. Panoff, Ph.D., President and Executive Director of Shodor and the National Computational Science Institute – transforming learning through computational thinking Durham, NC will be a guest panelist of the Summit where he will address the attendees on “What Education is Looking for in Technology Solutions” and on “Technology Deployments ““ How to do them right and pitfalls.”

The Shodor Education Foundation’s collaboration with SCE is now making their materials available worldwide, whether a student has access to the internet or not. Dr, Panoff stated, “What Interactivate + will enable is a dynamic visual exploration (or re-visiting) of the whole concept of derivative, integral, limits, recursion, sequences, etc. to get some insight that may have been missing before.” He further stated, “What we have claimed and proven is that these materials in a blended instructional style can be used effectively to help remediate, with the right instructor and attitude on the part of the student.”

Interactivate + Intervention (I + I) is an innovative and intensive math intervention program that fills gaps in an individual’s math background and utilizes a blended approach that balances in-class instruction with the Web-based content of Shodor’s Interactivate.

I + I has the objective of converting students from “memorizers” to individuals who understand math concepts, returning them to their classroom with potential to succeed in the standard curriculum.

Cost- and time-effective, Interactivate + Intervention is a total program for math education throughout America. Comprehensive Protocol based training materials, videos, manuals as well as follow-up webinars and more are provided as is customization to individual organizational needs.

SCE’s protocol delivery system allows same time-different place secure instruction for this powerful intervention program developed in cooperation with The Shodor Education Foundation.

Multiple classes in various locations may be managed from a central control center using SCE proprietary software. Effective delivery of the instruction and secure, smooth data exchange of confidential student scores and records is possible due to SCE’s technological advances.
