TO EDUCATION, STATE, AND TECHNOLOGY EDITORS:

Lea(R)n takes guesswork out of digital learning

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Dec. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/

— Lea(R)n, creator of the award-winning online resource for

educators, LearnTrials, today announced that public and private

schools, districts and networks of educators all over the country are

improving their efficiency and insights when purchasing education

technologies for the classroom.

Teachers use technology in the classroom more than ever. The problem

is the overwhelming number of products available today and knowing

which products and services to use. Lea(R)n’s  neutral platform helps

educators make informed purchasing and instructional decisions so the

right technologies make it into their classrooms in less time. The

data-driven solution measures teacher “real use” feedback with other

information to create customized, objective “report cards” on

classroom learning tools.

“As budgets tighten and technology expands, schools need data to know

which products to buy, cancel or expand,” said Karl Rectanus, founder

and CEO of Lea(R)n. “LearnTrials gives schools, states and districts a

better way to solve this costly problem.”

With LearnTrials, schools streamline technology feedback using a

research-based online platform with searchable insights on products.

LearnTrials quantifies the insights across schools with other data to

create personalized dashboards, peer insights and side-by-side

comparisons of tech products without ads, gimmicks or bias from

companies.
