NetDragon Collaborates with Pearson, Expands Education Library with Agreement to License Digital Content
HONG KONG, Oct 23, 2020 - (ACN Newswire) - NetDragon Websoft Holdings Limited (NetDragon; HKSE: 777 ), a global leader in building internet communities, is pleased to announce that NetDragon has signed a licensing agreement for K-12 education content with Pearson Global Schools, part of Pearson, the world's leading learning company. The high-quality interactive math and science content will be distributed through NetDragon's global learning community, led by subsidiaries Edmodo, Promethean, and JumpStart among others.
Pearson's classroom resources and multimedia learning tools focus on the individual needs of all learners. Primary/Elementary resources (ages 4-11) include the highly acclaimed Reading Street, Abacus Evolve, and enVisionMATH. For the digital natives (ages 11-18), interactive programs from Digits and Interactive Science are highly visual to make learning more engaging for today's students.
According to the World Economic Forum, around 1.2 billion children were out of school classrooms this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With blended learning now center stage, educators are realizing the potential for online interaction. Bringing together market-leading content from Pearson with NetDragon's AI and Machine learning technologies, lessons can be tailored for each individual student to work at their own pace for improved learning outcomes.
Dr. Simon Leung, Vice Chairman of NetDragon said, "Digital transformation was already moving education into an age of personalization, but COVID-19 has made it a priority. We are delighted to bring Pearson content into the NetDragon community. This partnership will allow us to meet each student where they are by applying performance insights that help guide recommendations to the best content for them at that moment."
Blended learning programs can engage users in the classroom, at home, or anywhere in between. With the right content, self-assessment tools, and practice resources, students are able to learn at their own level and pace. At the same time classroom delivery is made easier when educators have direct access to content and question banks that make generating quizzes, creating lesson plans, and monitoring individual progress simple.
As NetDragon and Pearson continue to reimagine education, there's a shared understanding among both companies for the potential to extend the partnership beyond K-12 content as demand for lifelong learning continues to grow.
