Assisting educators to improve education is one of the core values that drive us as a company. To this end, we know that the products we recommend must help achieve the goals of the teacher in the classroom. We offer hundreds of brands, but a few products get the “Proven Certified” label. How does a product get this label?
Before we give a product line “Proven Certified” status, we ask to see the research. Has this product shown significant impact on student learning and/or shown to increase teacher efficiency? The technology with the most “bells and whistles” or “buzz” may not be the best for teachers or students. We do offer some cutting edge “Proven Certified” products that rely on related research and we will tell you where we stand on those items. Other products that get the “Proven Certified” label may not be the latest and coolest gadgets for your school, but if a product has a clear-cut path to increasing student achievement, we think that is worth standing behind.
A product must work every day in the classroom. Since we are an education-first company, we work with the products in the classroom environment and understand the needs of teachers. Many of our Proven Learning consultants were classroom teachers and we understand that no matter how advanced a product is, if it doesn’t function with minimal effort, it isn’t going to get used frequently. We find products that don’t need endless software and firmware upgrades and products that will work well with other popular technologies that may already be in place.
Our main Proven Certified response pad solution can poll students in two clicks after opening the software. Our Proven Certified whiteboard solution can be physically installed in a classroom out of the box in about 30 seconds. Our Proven Certified audio enhancement solution takes the guesswork out of audio settings with presets so a teacher can get optimal classroom sound in seconds. And our Proven Certified trainings are designed to get you going on day one. The products that we offer have enough options and features for even the most tech-savvy, but you don’t have to be a tech guru to get up and running.And best of all, Proven Learning stands behind these products and the others we sell. There is no such thing as a perfect piece of technology, but partnering with a team of dedicated consultants that understand your needs and have the ability to make things right can make your school more effective.
