A learning platform supports and enhances teaching and learning in 21st century classrooms at all grade levels. It provides support for educators as they create, use, and manage a wide variety of digital resources to develop best practices such as: blended learning, flipping the classroom, personalized learning, professional learning communities, and many other innovative practices.
The cost of a learning platform can be relatively low if it is entirely cloud-based as this reduces IT costs. In addition, having very high user adoption rates can significantly contribute to a high return on investment for your technology dollars. Often for a minimal investment, schools can reap a wide range of benefits.
This paper looks at 12 key benefits, giving examples from real schools using the itslearning platform in the US and Europe.
