Visual learning software available at reduced price to Iowa districts

The Iowa Educators Consortium (IEC) has approved Monarch Teaching Technologies’ VizZle software in the Iowa state software sales contract. This joint venture is intended especially to benefit students with autism who need access to visual

education software.

“It is vital that students with autism have access to the most effective tools early so that they can reach their full learning potential,” said Terry Murphy, president of Monarch Teaching Technologies. “Now schools in Iowa will be able to purchase VizZle at a substantial group rate discount, allowing districts to help their students with special needs to be successful despite shrinking budgets.”

IEC offers reduced pricing for VizZle and other educational software from companies, including Crick Software, Kurzweil, Texthelp, and other educational resources. The IEC’s voluntary purchasing program for K-12 schools brings all statewide school purchasing programs under one legal umbrella and one fiscal management group.
