RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., June 6, 2019 – Lenovo (0992) (adr:LNVGY) today announced a Preferred Partnership between LanSchool, its classroom management platform, and Clever, the most widely used rostering portal in K–12 schools. This partnership helps remove barriers for teachers, providing them with a solution that saves them valuable instructional time.
The Clever and LanSchool integration will eliminate many of the pain points that teachers and students typically experience when using classroom management software. Setting up and managing software can often be a frustrating and time-consuming process. With over 12 million powered devices, LanSchool has shown success within both shared-device and one-to-one environments by allowing teachers to control learning environments more efficiently.
Through Clever, LanSchool can connect to the student information maintained by the individual school or school district, alleviating the time teachers spend managing class lists. Teachers and administrators within the district will be able to quickly and securely implement student rosters and class lists, and keep track of active, inactive, or transferred accounts.
“With more than 50 percent of classrooms now operating at a one-to-one ratio, Clever and LanSchool are committed to enhancing the educational experience of all,” said Rick German, General Manager, Lenovo Software. “This partnership combines the power of two leaders in edtech to create a true technology advantage for K-12. Teachers will spend less time managing devices, while students can spend more time learning.”
“LanSchool makes classroom management simple and easy and helps teachers create a more collaborative and impactful learning environment,” said Tyler Bosmeny, CEO, Clever. “We are excited to partner on a safer digital environment where teachers and students are ready for learning on day one.”
Currently, over half of U.S. K-12 schools connect on Clever’s platform to expand opportunity and access for their students.
LanSchool and LanSchool Air will appear in Clever’s App Gallery beginning on June 6, 2019.
Recently named as an award-winning emerging technology by EdTech Digest, LanSchool is a classroom management software that equips teachers with tools to monitor student progress on digital assignments, minimize disruption, enhance student collaboration, and maintain a safe digital learning environment. There are two versions: LanSchool, the original product with a 30+ year history, and LanSchool Air, purpose-built for Chromebooks, which launched in May 2018.
