Globe and Mail article examines an initiative in Brampton that dismantles the traditional classroom, inspired by Calm, Alert and Learning. For all the breadth of Pearson’s education ambitions, it has been in the business for a relatively brief moment in the corporation’s long history. Pearson Publishing is an independent company, not related in any way to Pearson Education or Pearson PLC.
The Company’s North America school business offers early learning solutions that help educators and families teach fundamental math and literacy skills; elementary and secondary imprints publish school programs in reading, literature, math, science and social studies, and digital instructional solutions for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade (k-12), such as enVisionMATH and Miller-Levine Biology.
Another mess involves a partnership between Pearson, Apple, and the Los Angeles Unified School District, which in 2013 announced a $1.3 billion project to provide an iPad, loaded with Pearson educational material, to each of the 650,000 students in the district.
Pearson doesn’t enjoy the withering criticism from countless directions, but the truth is, it may not matter that much: Even if the curriculum changes drastically, the company may well still provide the means by which it is disseminated. Our training was extremely well received and gave Pearson the knowledge they needed to incorporate key UCD processes into the development of their digital services.
