Youngstown, OH – September 3, 2014 – Turning Technologies, the global leading partner for learning engagement and assessment services, today announced it will work with Pearson to seamlessly integrate Schoolnet, the premier provider of web-based assessment solutions with Turning Technologies Insight 360 software, an interactive, mobile instructional platform for both teachers and students that creates collaborative classroom environments.

The integration will be available with Insight 360 version 2.6 and Schoolnet version 16.1.
“We understand the value of Schoolnet in K-12 classrooms and the importance data places in fueling decisions made on a state, district and school level,” said Turning Technologies’ CEO Mike Broderick. “Schoolnet aligns directly with our mission to manage, enhance and deliver instructional and assessment content in meaningful ways that improve learner success. Combined with our powerful Insight 360 engine to deliver dynamic material, teachers are provided easily-accessible, up-to-date information to implement lessons that will prove the most effective in developing student mastery. We are looking forward to continuing our collaboration with Schoolnet well into the future.”
The award-winning Schoolnet suite of data-driven education software is the only unified solution to align student assessment, curriculum and instruction; guide collaborative, data-informed discussion; and enable targeted instruction for every student. The Schoolnet Instructional Management System (IMS) enables districts to improve student achievement and drive efficiencies by bringing together their programs and initiatives around assessments, curriculum, instruction, reporting and analysis into a single user-friendly platform.
Insight 360 is a personalized instructional platform that facilitates and simplifies content planning, delivery and real-time assessment. Insight 360 acts as a digital version of the 21st century classroom, providing access to multiple edtech tools and content in one, convenient application without having to jump between resources. Platform is highly customizable so teachers can implement tools as they determine the needs of learners. Software is driven by a computer and launched via the Teacher App, allowing greater teacher mobility during lessons.
