Blossom Learning Appoints Advanced Presentation Products as Exclusive Reseller in Ontario, Canada

Appointment comes on the heels of the successful market debut of the breakthrough eight-chapter “Online Applied SMART Board Course� at FETC 2010 and TCEA 2010.

Available for immediate purchase for only US $69.95, the course allows teachers, administrators, and students to join a movement that fundamentally changes the way training is delivered to K-12 school systems.

TORONTO, CANADA, March 2, 2010 — Blossom Learning (www.blossomlearning.com), the innovative online training company that recently debuted the world’s first teacher-designed, 100% online training course for the SMART Board, today announced the appointment of Advanced Presentation Products (www.advanced-education.com) as its exclusive reseller in the Ontario, Canada market. The announcement was made by David Weatherhead, Blossom Learning’s Sales & Marketing Manager.

Based in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, Advanced Presentation Products is a SMART Distinguished Dealer that focuses on the growing Ontario market.
According to Weatherhead, Advanced has had a successful professional development training department for a number of years offering face-to-face SMART Board training courses for $300 per day. Now, included in the price of their face-to-face sessions they request that every student completes Mrs. Blossom’s Online Applied SMART Board Course prior to attending the sessions.

“This is exactly the way we see our Online Applied SMART Board Course extending the effectiveness of traditional face-to-face training,� Weatherhead said today. “Our vision is that resellers like Advanced become an integral part of the Blossom Learning movement by integrating our online courses into their training programs. We believe that doing so will enable them to train more educators faster, more completely, and more cost-effectively and that is a win-win value proposition that everyone can benefit from.�

Mark McPherson, Vice President of Sales for Advanced, commented, “We have seen the quality of our face-to-face training sessions increase since integrating Mrs. Blossom’s Online Applied SMART Board course into our training. Teachers ask fewer questions on the basics and more questions on advanced issues. This improves their information retention and gets them up to speed on the SMART Board even faster. We’ve been impressed with the response from teachers and our own SMART Certified Trainers.�

McPherson also sees an opportunity to use the Blossom Learning course to help him win more SMART Board contracts. “I can see in our upcoming tenders with districts for SMART Boards we will be offering Mrs. Blossom’s Online Applied SMART Board course as a key training component. The course is great as it helps administrators realize an immediate return on their technology investment, whilst giving Advanced a differentiator from the competition.�

Available for purchase for only US $69.95 at www.blossomlearning.com the “Online Applied SMART Board Course� provides K-12 teachers and school administrators with a simple low cost way to fully maximize their investment in SMART Boards. The eight-chapter step-by-step guide to fully integrate the SMART Board into any classroom environment is hosted by a 21st Century avatar named “Mrs. Blossom,� a composite K-12 teacher that every professional educator will immediately relate to.

The Online Applied SMART Board Course is designed to be a complete and affordable training solution that comes with built-in LMS administrative facilities that allow school districts to facilitate purchases, allocate courses to teachers, and track individual teacher progress toward completion. The course is priced low enough to allow individual teachers to purchase it on their own as well as administrators to purchase it for their entire school district. And, because it does feature built-in LMS facilities, administrators can measure the productivity of their investment teacher by teacher. The course also includes PDF-formatted homework practice sessions, as well as end-of-chapter reviews and quizzes that must be completed before proceeding to the next section.
