LiteracyPlanet at BETT Brasil
BETT Brasil is one of the most important events on the EdTech calendar. This year over 22,000 education professionals visited the Transamerica Expo Center from 230 leading companies. Showcasing our product’s new features is always a highlight, and we had some great conversations with fellow educators about the ways we can help support the development of English literacy in South America.
Brand new LiteracyPlanet website!
You also might have noticed our main LiteracyPlanet site has a bit of a new coat of paint! We wanted to make it easier for our schools to locate useful information about our program and how it works. Make sure you have a bit of a click around and tell us what you think! You can see how schools around the world are using our program in the case studies section here, or take a look at the different features of our program.
Chicago Literacy Alliance Fundraiser
The LiteracyPlanet US team was busy this week sponsoring the Chicago Literacy Alliance’s (CLA) annual One for the Books event. One for a Books features a showcase of rare literature, with select items available by auction. The event raises money for the CLA which does incredible things to improve the functional literacy of Chicago residents. We’re proud to support such an incredible cause.
Training educators in Vietnam
The LiteracyPlanet team also visited Hanoi to provide in-depth product training for Victoria Education. We love sharing LiteracyPlanet with schools around the world and it was such a thrill to provide passionate educators in South East Asia with the tools to improve English literacy.
Visiting schools in South Korea
The LiteracyPlanet team also popped in to Seoul, South Korea, to meet with our partners EduVantage, who help provide our program to local schools.
