Two Canadian Catholic School Districts Take Training to Higher Level with Investment in Blossom Learning Online SMART Board Courses

TORONTO, CANADA, August 3, 2010 — Underscoring the need to take their SMART Board training to a higher level of cost-effectiveness, the Renfrew County Catholic School District Board (www.rccdsb.edu.on.ca), based in Pembroke, Ontario, and the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board (www.hwcdsb.ca), based in Hamilton, Ontario, have purchased more than 100 copies of the revolutionary Blossom Learning Online SMART Board Course, according to Paul Weatherhead, General Manager of the Toronto, Canada based software developer.

“Catholic school districts face their own unique budget challenges when it comes to making technology investments and realizing the full potential of those investments,? Weatherhead said today. “The Blossom Learning Online SMART Board Course offered both of these districts with an affordable, easy-to-deploy training solution that will help their teachers realize the full creative potential of the SMART Boards installed in their classrooms. We are proud to be a part of their present and future training efforts.?

The Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board is the Roman Catholic school board for the city of Hamilton, Ontario. It operates 53 elementary and 7 secondary schools. The Renfrew County Catholic District School Board is comprised of 22 schools (20 English Elementary Schools and 2 English Secondary Schools) in 16 communities, the majority of which are rural.

Introduced in January of this year, the Blossom Learning Online 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 eight-chapter course allows teachers to complete training on their schedule, and completion shouldn’t take any more than two to three weeks. However, teachers will be able to get up and running with the SMART Board within minutes of starting the online course! The course allows teachers to return to the material over and over again until they become proficient, and the course includes PDF-formatted homework practice sessions, end-of-chapter reviews and quizzes that must be completed before proceeding to the next section. By the time they are finished, teachers will have progressed sequentially from the Fundamentals level through the Intermediate and Advanced levels, and receive a personalized Certificate of Completion.

Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, Blossom Learning is an innovative online training solutions provider comprised of former educators and AV presentation professionals who share a commitment to bring technology to life in the classroom environment through applied online training courses that are comprehensive, compelling, and priced to revolutionize the way teachers learn. The privately held company was started in 2009 and is located at 110 Cumberland Street, Suite 330, Toronto, Ontario M5R 3V5 Canada. The main telephone number is 1-877-390-7560.
