New Orleans, Louisiana (PRWEB) November 06, 2011
Jefferson Parish Public Schools is deploying 750 of Brainchild’s Kineo® tablets to 20 non-public schools. The tablets will be used for assessment and data-driven instruction on Louisiana’s LEAP standards, with Brainchild’s LEAP Achiever! series. Students use the tablets for individualized instruction. Their progress can be uploaded to web-based reports to help teachers and administrators adjust individual and group instruction.
Jefferson Parish has been successfully using Brainchild’s mobile learning devices since 2003. They will be using their new Kineo tablets to support student engagement and provide more instruction to master the Louisiana Content Standards.
