Paperlit has launched Paperlit Education!
Paperlit has presented a new product for the classroom called Paperlit Education at the ABCD fair of Genova from November 14 to 16. The new education product is addressed to elementary and middle schools in light of the Italian legislation which requires a complete digitization of the classroom by 2013. Paperlit and its partners (Microsoft, Intel and Giunti), have introduced an important experiment by placing hundreds of Windows 8 tablets in 6 classrooms (Istituto comprensivo “De Andrè e Montalcini” of Peschiera Borromeo, Istituto comprensivo “Baccio da Montelupo” of Montelupo Fiorentino, Collegio “San Carlo” of Milan, l’Istituto comprensivo of Paullo and Tecnico superiore “Oberdan” of Treviglio).
Paperlit has also developed special features to the platform that create a more interactive experience for students. Paperlit will completely transform how education publishers operate by adding to the digital edition of textbooks some features such as drawing and annotating on the pdf to complete exercises and sending homework to the teacher. This will simplify the entire learning process of students and remove most of the hassles for teachers.
Gionata Mettifogo, founder and chief developer at Paperlit, states “This is a big and exciting new step for Paperlit. Up to now we have been helping newspaper and magazine publishers better manage the digital distribution challenge. With this new product which we are calling Paperlit Education, we are entering into a whole new world of enabling teachers, students and scholastic publishers. With such partners as Microsoft, Intel and Giunti, we are confident that we can live up to the challenge of improving the learning experience for our kids in the years to come”.
