Knovation Honors Top School Districts Using Digital Learning Resources

Digital Learning Award winners include districts from Georgia, Arkansas and Illinois

CINCINNATI – Oct. 27, 2014Knovation, the leader in advanced personalized learning solutions, announces recipients of its Digital Learning Awards, which honors the top 100 school districts using digital resources to enhance their classroom experience. The program honors districts across the country using netTrekker, which delivers Knovation’s industry-leading library containing more than 360,000 digital learning resources that are curated, contextualized, tagged and standards-aligned to support personalized learning.

The Digital Learning Awards are presented to small-, medium- and large-sized districts based on their usage of netTrekker during the 2013-2014 school year. The top user overall is Forsyth County Schools in Cumming, Georgia. The top three school districts in each enrollment category include:

  • Large-Size Districts (more than 25,000 student enrollment)
    1. Forsyth County Schools, Cumming, Georgia
    2. Fort Bend Independent School District, Sugar Land, Texas
    3. Baltimore County Public Schools, Baltimore, Maryland
  • Mid-Size Districts (5,000-24,999 student enrollment)
    1. Fort Smith Public Schools, Fort Smith, Arkansas
    2. Akron Public Schools, Akron, Ohio
    3. Naperville Community Unit School District 203, Naperville, Illinois
  • Small-Size Districts (less than 5,000 student enrollment)
    1. La Grange Elementary School District 102, LaGrange Park, Illinois
    2. Canton Public Schools, Canton, Connecticut
    3. City Schools of Decatur, Decatur, Georgia

“As a district employing a BYOT model, we value digital content and learning tools that drive higher order thinking and increase student engagement,” said Dr. Jill Earman, coordinator of instructional technology at Forsyth County Schools. “We rely on tools such as netTrekker to help personalize learning and ensure academic success through vetted and curated digital learning resources. We are happy to partner with the professionals at Knovation who listen and respond to what we need to create an optimal learning environment for students at Forsyth County Schools.”

A national survey shows that 87 percent of educators expect their use of online digital content to increase over the next 2-3 years (Parthenon Teacher Survey). netTrekker helps teachers shift from print to digital by integrating with a district’s current digital learning environment to organize resources by grade level, content type, readability, subject and educational theme. The 2014 netTrekker Impact Study reveals that 92 percent of educators who use netTrekker are extremely satisfied with the digital learning solution, as it saves time in identifying online content and helps them achieve their goals and objectives.

“The Digital Learning Awards honors schools paving the way in digital conversions with netTrekker,” said Randy Wilhelm, CEO of Knovation. “These districts incorporate digital resources into their curriculum at a very high level, which creates an optimal environment for meaningful learning experiences to engage all learners.”

Leaders in each enrollment category received a donation to DonorsChoose.org on their behalf. You can view the complete list of Top 100 Digital Learning Award winners at: www.nettrekker.com/dla.
