TORONTO, March 12, 2019 /CNW/ - Edwin, the learning platform from Nelson Education, recognized for Google Classroom integration.
On the back of Edwin's initial success and with a shared commitment to equity in the classroom, Nelson is proud to integrate with Google for Education as a premier partner to further empower students and educators in bringing technology and trusted content to classrooms across Canada. Edwin is one of the first products from a Canadian education company to achieve Premier status in the Google for Education Partner Program.
Nelson Education sees Edwin as a force for promoting equity in education, offering a one-to-one ratio of student to device in every Edwin classroom, with equal access to vetted learning resources. Leveraging Nelson's trusted content and a wealth of additional curated learning resources, Edwin links its deep library directly to curriculum goals, and is personalized to the needs of every student and educator.
As a Google for Education Premier Partner, Nelson will work closely with Google for Education as Edwin continues to evolve based on students' and educators' classroom needs. Edwin's G Suite for Education integration will continue to enable educators and students as they learn and innovate together by developing future-ready skills and competencies such as collaboration, responsibility, and critical thinking.
Nelson began a pilot program in late 2017 in a handful of Edwin classrooms in Ontario and has since rapidly grown to transform classrooms in the hands of students and educators throughout Canada.
Next year will yield more of the Edwin promise. "Providing each student and educator with equitable access to the right tools for classroom success is at the core of what we do. Combining the power of Edwin with Google for Education's classroom solutions we can further modernize education across Canada and soon, around the world." Said Steve Brown, NELSON Chief Executive Officer.
NELSON is Canada's largest and leading educational publisher. NELSON believes in the evolution of life-long education and dedicates its business efforts to the creation of high quality, innovative solutions that support the needs of every student and educator to empower learning success.
