PEARSON PRENTICE HALL SELECTS SAFEROCK FOR TEXAS LITERACY K-12 INTERACTIVE PROJECT
2/11/2011 (Dumont, NJ)
Pearson Prentice Hall (NYSE: PSO) recently completed an engagement with Saferock on a K-12 interactive whiteboard program. Saferock was selected to complete this Literacy program for Texas, by Pearson's marketing departments. Saferock worked with marketing to take existing print product and develop a highly graphical set of IWB lessons. The IWB lessons were showcased at the publisher's national training seminars and used in Texas schools as a pilot program.
Shah Karim, CEO of Saferock said, "It's been our privilege to work on this program with the highly professional team from Pearson, and participate in the mission that we share - setting the path to a 21st century education by providing engaging digital content for our children, and making it easier for teachers to be successful."
The literacy content for each grade was dissected and graphical elements extracted from each individual lesson. Promethean's interactive whiteboard software was used for these exercises, and the content is available on Promethean Planet.
