Miami, FL – January 19, 2016 – The ever-increasing omnipresence of digital media in student’s lives can be challenging for teachers as they compete for kid’s attention in and out of the classroom. With this in mind, Teach n’ Kids Learn (TKL) and DimensionU have teamed up to create a robust Online Professional Development course that supports teachers’ instruction in mathematics and language arts through gamification, quickly and easily.

Included for K-12 educators who enroll in the course by February 15, 2016, is a free DimensionU Class License (for up to 30 students), through the remainder of this school year.

The online professional development course focuses on helping teachers incorporate educational video games and applying game-based learning techniques in the classroom. The DimensionU portfolio of educational games creates high student engagement and offers a solid foundation with demonstrated improvement in students’ achievement results. In regards to the online course, TKL’s instructional methodology, guarantees teachers immediate implementation in the classroom, individualized support and well structured, easy-to-use examples for applying the newly acquired techniques.

When asked about the place of video games and other new technologies in education, Steven Hoy, CEO of DimensionU responded: “The horizon for student learning and public education has never been more poised for positive digital innovation and disruption. It is our responsibility and intent to create tools that will engage students in their own learning, anywhere and anytime; our partnership with TKL strives to support teachers in that process, with state-of-the-art professional development and easy to implement classroom techniques.”

Reviews and feedback from initial participants attribute high marks to the new course, entitled Learning Through Engagement – DimensionU. “TKL is excited about our partnership with DimensionU and about bringing this new course to fruition,” said Jodi Slonaker of TKL. “We take our responsibility of facilitating instructional development for teachers very seriously. We offer individualized and effective coaching, so teachers can hit the ground running even before finishing the entire course,” added Slonaker.
