Ignite Debuts Network-delivered Curriculum Materials

##AUTHORSPLIT##<--->

Education developer Ignite! Learning this week launched a new delivery system for its science, social studies, and math curricula called "The ION" (Ignite! over Network).

ION is a piece of software that allows teachers to access Ignite! materials from a school's local or wide-area network.

"Ease of use and an excellent customer experience is as important to us as our solid curriculum," said Alan Davis, president and CEO of Ignite! Learning, in a statement released Wednesday. "After hearing from our customers that a network-based platform would improve their implementation of the Ignite! curriculum, we developed a solution to meet their needs. The ION allows schools to purchase multi-seat licenses, giving many teachers the ability to access the Ignite! curriculum in their classrooms at the same time."

Ignite!'s learning materials include a media library, lesson plans, student activities, and student workbooks. The software can be used in conjunction with existing classroom technologies, including Smart Boards, for which Ignite! was recently accredited. Multi-seat licenses of The ION are presently available to allow concurrent use in multiple classrooms.
