BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Just in time for the holidays, VINCI Education, the technology-powered education company that has revolutionized the way preschoolers are learning, is launching a new virtual school for toddlers and preschool-aged children. For a limited time, the company is offering its education tablet free to parents who enroll their preschoolers and toddlers in the new virtual school.
The touchscreen tablet is specially designed to work with VINCI’s new virtual school program, ClassVINCI Home. It allows lesson plans and content to be automatically managed through a cloud-based learning management server so that parents save time downloading and installing. The virtual school program is modeled after the company’s successful solution ClassVINCI, which won the latest Tech & Learning Award of Excellence. The company also operates brick-and-mortar schools and daycare centers in the U.S. and Canada, where the same blended learning curriculum is implemented.
Very different from casually reading books or playing games, VINCI’s virtual school program, ClassVINCI Home, provides lesson plans with activities, books, music, videos and game-based lessons which are inter-connected. This structure drives various skills one after the other, scaffolding them to meet the Kindergarten Readiness assessments that have been implemented in many states.
“Children who do well in school start off doing well in kindergarten. Their success comes from the confidence they develop in their very early years of learning and growing,” said Dr. Dan Yang, founder and CEO of VINCI Education. “There are key skills that each child needs in order to succeed in school. ClassVINCI simply makes those skills visible and helps children to gain these skills one at the time.”
As part of the Virtual School program, parents receive skill-driven digital games and books plus weekly lesson plans complete with a variety of lists of activities for tactile learning. VINCI Virtual School’s ClassVINCI Home program works on either VINCI tablets or other Android tablets powered by a 3rd party. An iPad version is expected in February 2015. Only VINCI tablets enable parents to automatically manage digital content and connect to learning assessment.
For a limited time, parents who enroll their children at the Silver, Gold or Platinum level will receive a free VINCI tablet, just in time for the holidays!
