Two dozen local and regional detention homes in Virginia recently purchased the netTrekker d.i. solution for safe Internet browsing.
The Virginia Department of Education Division Director of Testing for State Operations Program purchased the software so children in these homes, who learn in single-room classrooms with others of various ages, challenges, and needs, can receive the differentiated instruction that they need.
NetTrekker offers more than 300,000 hand-selected, educator-approved Web sites organized by readability level and aligned to state standards, providing resources ideal for every student's learning needs with safe, reliable results.
More than 12 million students now can surf the Web with netTrekker d.i. Other recent installations include Florida’s Broward County Public Schools, the sixth-largest in the country, The School District of Palm Beach County (FL), the 11th largest, and Maryland’s Baltimore County Public Schools, the nation’s 25th-largest district.
Developed by Thinkronize Inc., netTrekker d.i. is used by more than 600,000 teachers in 21,000 schools in all 50 states. Broward adopted the system “so that our teachers, students, and parents can feel secure using it to find educationally sound and appropriate web sites for teaching and learning,” said Jeanine Gendron, director instructional technology, Broward County Public Schools. “It will be an excellent instructional resource for our learning community.”
