Charter school selects digital content provider

The RiverBend Academy Charter School in Mankato, MN has selected a new in-classroom digital content provider for all students in grades 6-12, and will begin implementation this fall. New Dimension Media’s CCC!'s internet-only option will provide the flexibility that RiverBend wanted to bring to its unique curriculum.

“Our school has a strong focus on project based learning, and we feature academic projects designed by both students and educators,” said Don Johannsen, School Coordinator at RiverBend Charter School. “CCC! will be an excellent tool that our educators can use to augment these projects.They will also incorporate CCC! into their classroom lessons.”

“So far, my experience training the RiverBend teachers on the system has been great,” said Mary Isenburg, Director of Instructional Technology at New Dimension Media. "Both students and teachers have let me know they really appreciate the Search by Standards option, which uniquely suits this school where students are involved in designing projects!”

RiverBend Academy is chartered for 150 students and has been serving Mankato-area students for over 10 years.
