The Cooke Center for Teaching and Learning Selects OpenSchool for Online Portfolios

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 27, 2014) -  Open School EduTech Corporation announces that Cooke Center for Learning and Development selects OpenSchool as the exclusive online portfolio for their Academy program.

Mary Clancy, Principal, Cooke Center Academy, states, "We are looking forward to partnering with OpenSchool for our new digital portfolio initiative. In the never ending effort to capture the realities of multisensory learning, digital portfolios will allow our students to engage with technology in new ways, give our teachers opportunities for authentic assessment, and finally give us an alternative to stacks of 3-ring binders!" 

Jessie Gardner, Technology Specialist and Head Teacher, Cooke Center Academy, adds, "Our partnership with OpenSchool for digital portfolios is a continuum of our practice of integrating technology because it is engaging and because it is functional for our students; digital portfolios will allow students to receive, interact and exhibit material in ways best befitting their individual learning styles. I'm excited to see how our staff integrates the use of digital portfolios to showcase the variety of strengths we have here!"

Steve Zimmerman, co-creator of OpenSchool, states, "School-wide programs like those at Cooke improve outcomes for students challenged by current assessments. They see the immediate benefits of OpenSchool for their students because they now have the ability to fully reflect on the whole student. Tracking student learning, measuring individual progress over the course of each student's development and sharing that information with team teachers, parents and administrators to enhance student learning outside the classroom, allows Cooke Center to support their students in even more progressive ways."

The management team at Open School EduTech Corporation is excited about the Cooke Center for Learning and Development choosing to use OpenSchool as its exclusive online portfolio.
