netTrekker and Nelson Education Help Canadian Schools Transition to Digital Resources
Born in the digital information age, students expect interactive technology-based learning experiences, yet according to Project Tomorrow’s research, a gap remains between how students are able to use technology in school and how they use it outside school. To help schools address the needs of the 21st century student, netTrekker is excited to announce a new partnership with Nelson Education Ltd., the leading educational publisher in Canada. Nelson Education will now be the exclusive distributor of netTrekker in Canada.
Together, Nelson and netTrekker will be offering a new Canadian-specific version of netTrekker, delivering digital instructional resources customized for the Canadian curriculum – giving Canadian educators and students more of the resources they need to create an engaging, personalized learning experience. And as we celebrate Earth Day this week, it’s also exciting to think about the positive environmental impact that this digital transition could have as educators and students around the world rely more and more on interactive digital resources and less on the traditional printed textbook.
Nelson Education will contact current Canadian netTrekker subscribers in the coming months to help facilitate a smooth transition to the new netTrekker Canada product. Additional information is also available in Monday’s press release.
