SAN DIEGO, March 26, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Game Changing Technologies, Inc. (“GCT”) announced it is partnering with Education Revolution to bring the award-winning Socrates Learning Platform to teachers and students in the Native American Tribes for free through the end of the school year while schools are impacted by COVID-19.
The following statement was issued by Dr. Ralph Thomas, Socrates President and Chief Technology Officer:
“We recognize that parents and teachers are looking for ways to make their time at home productive to continue their learning journey and be in the best position to continue their education when school resumes. This is a challenge as we don’t know how long this crisis will last or the impact on the balance of the school year. GCT and the Socrates team want to do what we can to help.
“In response to this crisis, we have made the Socrates Learning Platform available to all impacted students in the Tribal Nations for the rest of the school year and through the summer at no charge. Teachers will be able to use Socrates to assign practice, assessments, and homework to their students remotely and monitor results if desired, or they can allow the Socrates engine to progress the child automatically. Parents will know their child is continuing to learn while at home, and students can continue to learn while having fun in the Socrates learning environment.”
This assistance is available to any teacher, administrator, parent or child in the Native American Tribes impacted by this crisis.
