WIN Learning, developers of the WIN Career Readiness System, and Nepris, a cloud-based platform, today announced they have entered into a strategic partnership to provide students with opportunities to connect the knowledge and skills they learn in school to the real world.
The cloud-based Nepris platform connects professionals to classrooms for online, interactive discussions covering the spectrum of STEAM careers, for mentoring or to evaluate student work. The WIN Learning Career Readiness System offers comprehensive career exploration and planning complete with career readiness foundational, academic, and employability skills support.
The first stage of the partnership will focus on connecting teachers who are using the recently launched WIN Math program with Nepris’ industry professionals. WIN Math is a career-infused, mathematics and workplace skills program for students in grades 5-8. Teachers facilitate instruction through a project-based blended learning model. Students work on math concepts through projects such as marketing plans or performance charts similar to what might be required in a workplace setting. They then transfer their understanding through embedded formative and summative assessments, giving teachers real time student progress monitoring support.
