Boston, MA – Nov. 5, 2014 —Two schools and two districts are the latest to join the number of educational institutions opting for the next generation, cloud-based learning management system from itslearning (www.itslearning.net). Despite their different pedagogical environments, Urban Community School in Cleveland, Escondido Charter School in California, Fraser Public Schools in Michigan and Rosedale Union School District in Bakersfield, Calif. have all found that the digital learning platform meets their individual needs.

"These four new partnerships demonstrate that itslearning can be a trusted partner no matter how educators choose to approach learning," said Arne Bergby, itslearning CEO. "Urban Community School is a private ecumenical school in the Catholic tradition while Escondido is a charter school. Fraser Public Schools needed a platform that could support its 1:1 initiative, and Rosedale Union is an all-elementary district primarily interested in providing students with immediate feedback and formative assessments."

Designed specifically for the K-12 sector, itslearning is a leading, cloud-based learning management system (LMS) that enables teachers to more effectively engage today’s “digitally wired” students anytime, anywhere and on any device. The platform enables student voice and choice, facilitating collaboration and self-reflection through blogs, individualized learning plans, communities and ePortfolios. itslearning also fosters student content creation and peer analysis, extending the role of the student far beyond that of a traditional “consumer.”

Bergby continued, "We make a point of listening and working with schools and districts, and we're expecting to see great outcomes from these new partners. Two of them, Rosedale Union and Fraser Public Schools, already have far-reaching reputations for excellence and innovation."

Rosedale Union's assistant superintendent, Sue Lemon, led the initiative to introduce a learning management system into the district and was recently awarded the title of regional administrator of the year. Fraser School District has become well-known in Michigan and beyond as an innovative school district. One example of Fraser's initiatives is their iPad adoption, which is, to date, the largest such program in the state.

"We utilized a team of administrators and classroom teachers to select itslearning as our learning management system," said Dr. Dave Richards, Fraser's superintendent. "Throughout the discovery process, it became abundantly clear that itslearning would partner with us to accomplish our student achievement goals. itslearning and Fraser are such a good fit that the company has designated us as a Lighthouse District to serve as a reference for instructional technology, instructional design and blended learning. And I'm so impressed with what the platform can do, I'm committed to spreading the word about itslearning across the state and throughout the midwest."

These new school and district partners join more than 2.5 million educators, students, and parents worldwide that are currently using itslearning. The media-rich learning platform’s seamless integration with existing school and district systems creates a user-friendly interface that gives teachers a way to share instructional resources, assignments and activities, and assessments with students and parents via personalized dashboards. At the same time, students have the power to decide how they learn as the solution automatically adapts to support learning styles that offer the best opportunities for success. A proprietary ‘standards mastery and recommendation engine’ facilitates remediation, acceleration and review by automating the recommendation of resources and activities based upon standards mastery assessments. The recommendations are also tailored specifically to the individual learning styles of each student – regardless of age, ability level, interests or special requirements.
