IBM and a school district in Georgia will implement a $27.9 million initiative to integrate technology into curriculum and the classroom to support both teaching and learning.
The eCLASS program is intended to give teachers in Gwinnett County digital content and tools for instructing 168,000 students across 132 educational facilities, IBM said Tuesday.
Michael King, IBM vice president of global education industry, said the company aims to align data and analytics to personalize learning experiences for teachers and students.
As the eCLASS systems integrator, IBM will deploy mobile and analytics tools that work to manage human capital, student information and communication among parents, faculty and students through an online portal.
The school district also intends for the program to leverage industry educational applications and student-owned devices.
