SALEM, Ore. (April 3, 2014) – Mobile Education Store announces the launch of its Kickstarter campaign for Crack the Books™, an interactive, state-of-the-art series of non-fiction science books. Designed for students of all reading capabilities, Crack the Books provides differentiated instruction through the first digital book that can be adjusted for reading level. With the touch of a button, a parent or teacher can change the reading level from a first to eighth grade level, without sacrificing content.

Funds raised through the 30-day Kickstarter campaign will support the next generation of digital books, which can cost tens of thousands of dollars to produce. With the additional funds, Mobile Education Store will generate more books to complete the popular life science series, and cover additional subject areas such as social studies.

“As a father of a daughter with special needs, I developed Crack the Books to help students of all reading abilities receive proper instruction and learn at their own pace,” said Kyle Tomson, president and founder of Mobile Education Store. “With your support, we can ensure these books will be available to help all students, from those with special needs to those with academic gifts, become better, more confident readers.”

Developed in partnership with universities, researchers and educators, the interactive books are the most up-to-date and accurate science texts available today. The series features rich audio-visual elements, including animated maps, custom animations and interactive activities, to help students understand difficult concepts. Built-in tests for each chapter and reading level measure a student’s understanding of the material.

“By engaging the visual, audio and tactile senses, Crack the Books enables students to learn faster and retain what they learn,” said Tomson. “We bring science content to life with the help of award-winning photographers, videographers and animators from around the world to reach and inspire all children.”

LocknCharge Now Responsible for Charging, Storing and Deploying Over One Million Devices

MADISON, Wis. (August, 23, 2016) - As educators aim to increase the use of devices in the classroom this upcoming school year, LocknCharge, provider of solutions that increase accessibility and usability of technology, celebrates a milestone of storing, charging and deploying over one million devices. Through their variety of basket-based mobile deployment carts, LocknCharge has helped enable 1:1 learning while saving teachers an average of an hour a week in school districts such as the Coachella Valley Unified School District (CVUSD). When CVUSD, a district with 19,500 students in 22 schools that cover an area in Thermal, Ca. as large as Rhode Island, realized that only 16 percent of their students that went on to college graduated, they looked for ways to change their culture in order to better prepare their students for the 21st century. Though CVUSD is one of the poorest school districts in the country, superintendent Dr. Darryl Adams set out to become the first school district to provide all P-12 students and teachers with Apple iPads. The district realized that they also needed a solution to manage over 20,000 devices. With the help of LocknCharge’s EVO 40 cart, CVUSD has accomplished the goals of its 1:1 program with the seamless introduction of the tablets into every classroom.
