SAN DIEGO, Sept. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Werkz Publishing Inc. is pleased to announce a new partnership with Global Classroom, an international education research organization and curriculum provider with offices in India, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom. Global Classroom will use the proprietary PageWerkz® eLearning platform to develop and deliver dynamic content for the Compete With Yourself (CWY) system of assessments and progress tools.
"We had been seeking a partner who understands the education space and possesses the expertise to create a world-class application for our CWY product. PageWerkz proved to be exactly what we were looking for," said Dr. Sunita Gandhi, founder of Global Classroom. "PageWerkz is ideally suited to the exclusivity of CWY's underlying philosophy, which focuses on instilling confidence in pupils by encouraging each child to compete with himself or herself rather than with others. Research has shown this approach helps students achieve their best potential and greater success."
Global Classroom will be using PageWerkz to power CWY's mathematics content for primary/elementary school students. Approximately 5,000 pupils across India, the UK, and the UAE will participate in the pilot, with additional users, content, subjects, and markets to be added in the future. Students begin by taking an initial mathematics assessment via an online portal; based on their results, they receive a personalized study plan and access to interactive workbooks that will support their continued progress and improvement.
For the initial rollout, Werkz Publishing digitized 100 mathematics study guides. Users access their assigned study materials—known as Perfection Books or "PerBooks"—via the PageWerkz-powered CWY app, which delivers the dynamic eWorkbooks to the student's tablet or computer. Not only does PageWerkz enable users to synchronize their work across multiple mobile and computing platforms, but it allows students to use downloaded PerBooks offline so they can continue working even when they are not connected to the Internet.
"We are honored that Global Classroom selected PageWerkz to support its innovative Compete With Yourself learning system, and we are eager to introduce our industry-leading educational technology to CWY users across the globe," said Werkz Publishing CEO Dr. Mark Salata. "In less than 12 months, our usership has rapidly grown to more than 100,000 students throughout Asia, the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. We expect 2016 will be our best year yet in helping transform the digital landscape with the unique offline-to-online capability of PageWerkz, which allows students to learn anytime and anywhere without needing continuous Internet access."
In addition to collaborating with Global Classroom on its CWY app and PerBooks, Werkz Publishing is actively partnering with a number of other companies to deliver their content via the PageWerkz eLearning platform. PageWerkz is also the foundation for ScienceWerkz, the company's own award-winning line of science education apps.
