December 5th, 2012 - SymbalooEDU and VSCHOOLZ announced a new partnership to make organizing resources between their platforms easier for educators. They intend to do this through various planned integrations with the first of the bunch being shared today.
Educators can use SymbalooEDU to create webmixes, then store these webmixes within their VSCHOOLZ portal, and tag them to common core standards.
In the coming months SymbalooEDU and VSCHOOLZ plan to assess usage between their tools to find ways to streamline and best integrate functions for educators.
Klaas Lameijer, Chief Executive Officer of SymbalooEDU said about the announcement, "VSCHOOLZ is a great partner for us because together we can help educators find valuable resources, organize them visually for their students, and tag them to common core standards for a complete learning management system or personal learning environment for their students."
“The VSCHOOLZ team is proud to partner with SymbalooEDU to bring our blended learning ecosystem to teachers around the world,” said Trina Angelone Trimm, Chief Operating Officer at VSCHOOLZ. “In this digital age, it is exciting to have a strategic alliance between organizations that incorporate blended classroom learning management technologies into the delivery of their curriculum. The ability for teachers to reach students through web- based and online connected communities is powerful. VSCHOOLZ is excited to work with the strong SymbalooEDU network of committed educators who already understand the value of using technology in a blended learning environment for students.”
SymbalooEDU is a resource management tool that helps educators and students curate and organize the best of the web into individualized instruction. With SymbalooEDU educators can save their teaching resources in the cloud and access them from any device.
