OpenPeak Partners With Digital Learning Now! National Initiative to Enhance Education in America
BOCA RATON, Fla., Aug. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — OpenPeak Inc., a leading provider of multimedia touch-screen device and device management platforms, today announced it signed on as a partner with Digital Learning Now!, the national campaign launched by former Governors Jeb Bush of Florida and Bob Wise of West Virginia to reform public education through the integration of current and future technological innovations in the classroom.
Named as a Digital Leader in the effort, OpenPeak and CEO Dan Gittleman will contribute expertise, technological knowledge and support to the organization that aims to enhance access to high-quality digital content and instruction for students and educators around the country.
“Regardless of your politics, most Americans would agree that education should be a top national priority,” Gittleman said. “The move toward digital education represents a proven pathway to help our students achieve a competitive edge and build a better future for themselves and future generations. We are honored to be a part of this powerful initiative to bring real change to public education in America.”
Part of the challenge surrounding the implementation of digital learning in the classroom centers around delivering quality content while balancing accessibility with control. To begin with, students need ready access to top-notch digital instructional materials, including online content, without the risk of encountering questionable material. In addition, digital learning must accommodate the ability to share resources (multiple students using a single tablet or PC for example) and provide a mechanism to configure accessibility to various materials, content and IT resources for specific groups and individuals–course content for a specific class or grade level or instructional materials and supplemental content for individual teachers and/or students.
For its part, OpenPeak’s newly launched OpenPeak ADAM(TM) Advanced Device and Application Management platform provides a hierarchical system for complete device and content management, as well an easy-to-use platform for uniform distribution of education materials and assessment tools. In addition to the ability to deliver digital education materials in a tiered system, OpenPeak ADAM also provides a tracking and feedback loop for data gathering and automatic measurement against quality, access, usage and success standards which can be utilized to create customized content for teachers and individual students.
The ability to manage the delivery of digital content, learning, and assessment tools at a national, state and local level–all the way down to the classroom and individual student level–overcomes a significant hurdle in the pathway to implementation and aligns perfectly with the 10 Elements of High Quality Digital Learning that have been identified as part of the Digital Learning Now! campaign.
