Defining the emerging role of social learning tools to connect students, parents & educators

A Special White Paper based upon the Speak Up 2011 National Findings

Each year, Project Tomorrow®, a national education nonprofit organization, facilitates the annual Speak Up National Research Project. As part of this initiative, we track increasing growth in the use of emerging technologies to address the specific needs and aspirations of students, parents and educators for 21st century learning environments. This year, Project Tomorrow has partnered with Schoolwires, Inc. to create a special white paper on the role of tech-enabled social learning within K-12 education.

Summary of key points:

  • Defining “social learning” in an education setting
  • The value proposition around social learning
  • Addressing the unmet demand for greater use of social learning within schools
  • How new solutions can mitigate concerns that still exist about social learning

The Schoolwires Story

Schoolwires is dedicated to K-12 education, and to the people who are part of every local school community — students, families, teachers, administrators, and supporters of education. From the beginning, we’ve believed that a successful school district is a product of total community involvement. That’s why our mobile and Web-based solutions are expressly designed to connect K-12 communities with the information, services and people they need to achieve their district goals. For more than 10 years, our intuitive technologies have been helping administrators and educators, students and parents, communicate and collaborate like never before — to come together around success.

Today, more than 10 million users in the U.S. and China rely on our content management system, mobile solutions and safe collaborative learning community to drive engagement in the classroom, locally and across the globe. We’re proud to be a part of that. And we remain committed to helping K-12 communities extend their local reach and transcend the boundaries of their districts so that individuals everywhere can achieve their full potential.
