Chromebooks, which are gaining popularity in the K-12 education sector due in part to lower IT costs and security advantages, is a good match with software programs such as CompassLearning Odyssey, because students have anytime access to lessons and activities and teachers can easily and effectively monitor student achievement and needs.
“Combining engaging digital content, like CompassLearning Odyssey, with the Chromebook provides our students with access to personalized learning opportunities that did not exist a few short years ago,” said Jacob Givand, online learning facilitator with Robbinsdale Area Schools in New Hope, MN.
Givand continues: “Technology is an important element to inspire and engage all learners. Technology also empowers teachers to manage both the classroom and the needs of individual students. With the combination of Chromebooks and CompassLearning Odyssey, we are realizing the vision of one-to-one computing; we are raising the level of learning and achievement in our district.”
Support for the Chrome browser and Google Chromebooks is part of Compass Learning’s commitment to provide rigorous and engaging digital content and curriculum to US classrooms, added Eric Loeffel, CEO of Compass Learning.
Loeffel notes that laptops, tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices will continue to play a central role in education.
“We are excited to support students, teachers, and administrators who have chosen Chromebooks by adding to the foundation of technology and access that Google is creating. Together with our customers we are building a platform for education that empowers teachers to better manage the classroom, gives teachers more time to fulfill their aspirations as teachers, and at the same time makes learning more exciting and personal for every student,” he said.
