Kingston, Tenn. – April 16, 2015 – WIN Learning, developers of the WIN Career Readiness System, and Nepris, a cloud-based platform connecting STEAM (science, technology, engineering, performing arts and math) professionals with teachers and their students, 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. By managing the end-to-end process of identifying, matching, and virtually bringing the industry expert into the classroom for an interactive discussion, Nepris allows professionals and companies to manageably and effectively reach out and interact with teachers and their students. The award winning WIN Learning Career Readiness System offers comprehensive career exploration and planning complete with career readiness foundational, academic, and employability skills support. More than 10 million students currently use the WIN system worldwide.

“When we help students understand how their school work is related to their futures, we personalize learning. When we provide students with opportunities to apply that learning and use the acquired skills for reasons beyond passing a test or getting a good grade, we inspire them to think about life beyond the classroom,” said Teresa Chasteen, CEO of WIN Learning. “That’s what this partnership is designed to do.”

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 designed for students in grades 5-8. The curriculum is organized into 21 units addressing 16 career clusters with emphasis on STEM subjects. Teachers facilitate instruction through a project-based blended learning model. Working individually or collaboratively, 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.

“Our mission is to connect learners with inspirational industry professionals -- to be part of the everyday classroom - whether guiding students through projects, talking about the inner workings of their chosen professions or even evaluating student-created projects – as often as teachers deem necessary - not just once or twice a year during traditional career days, said Sabari Raja, CEO and founder of Nepris. “We are very excited to work with WIN Learning to establish a new quality standard for providing young people to real-world concepts, employment opportunities and possible careers.”
