Nsoma Announces Strategic Partnership With Ed Leadership SIMs -- the Leader in Education Leadership Development

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Dec 9, 2014) - Now, the same training solutions used for astronauts and engineers are available for education leaders. Ed Leadership SIMs ("ELS") announces its strategic partnership with Nsoma for education leadership training.

Ken Spero, CEO of "ELS" and simulations creator, has spent over 25 years developing and incorporating computer-based simulations change management and leadership and organization development interventions. He also co-founded Humentum, LLC that created simulations across countless other industries. Ken transitioned to education by designing and launching the Immersive Learning University for NexLearn. He also teaches at the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania and helped develop PELS (Penn Educational Leadership Simulation Program) an innovative, research-based collaboration between Penn GSE and the three major professional associations for K-12 school leaders.

"I have always been fascinated by why smart people make bad decisions. Simulations are wonderful vehicles that allow leaders to take advantage of the adage 'Experience is the Best Teacher.' Education leaders can use the simulations to practice exercising judgment and experiencing consequences to achieve better outcomes in real world settings -- namely schools and districts," states Mr. Spero.

"Much of the talk around education centers is on schools doing more to support students, parents and teachers. At the heart of that support are the administrators. Every year new responsibilities come at these leaders with no additional training to prepare or support them," states Kathy Walter, CEO of Nsoma. "Ed Leadership SIMs gives Superintendents, Principals and Assistant Principals the opportunity to train on ever-evolving challenges -- and gives them opportunities to expand their comfort level with more complex issues."

Simulations are available now for use in your district's training. The Company is also working on an online delivery platform for early next year.
