The EP Story – New Exciting Developments Ahead
As the new year approaches us, we’re excited to launch our fresh new look and explore how we’re going to best support you in 2020.
Since EP’s inception we’ve been on a mission to leverage technology to create transformational teaching and learning experiences.
As the role of a teacher continues to evolve, it’s our goal to save you time, make you more effective in your day to day, and ultimately drive student learning outcomes.
Where it all started
In 2007, Craig and Shane Smith, two brothers in high school, were struggling in French and Japanese and made it their mission to create a tool to improve the learning process.
Over the next 13 years, the EP platform has evolved immensely with more than 1,600 schools becoming part of the EP Community.
Looking ahead to 2020
In 2020 we’re planning on taking the ‘EP experience’ to new heights.
Each week leading up to Christmas, we’ll be emphasising some of the areas and celebrating some of the ways teachers are incorporating the program within their practice to raise student achievement.
Here’s some of the exciting developments you can expect next year:
* New subjects and continued development
Schools taking up the full EP Learning Suite in 2020 will have access to Maths, Science, English, Languages, Humanities, Civics and Citizenship, Economics & Business, and Health & PE.
* Year 11-12 Programs
Continued expansions in Maths, Science, English and Languages for Y11-12 students.
* Enriched professional development
We’ll be introducing professional development programs for each department. If there are specific areas of professional learning you would like to have access to, please get in touch so we can discuss a tailored program to best meet your needs.
* Improved content curation and authoring, enabling a cross-curricular approach
All of the content on EP is customisable and can be shaped to match your own curriculum requirements. From making tweaks to existing lessons, through to building your own lessons and assessments from scatch, there are a host of tools which make this a seamless experience. Better still, in 2020 you’ll be able to leverage the entire content library to design your own programs, drawing content from all subjects.
* Deeper integration within your Learning Management System
EP is designed to seamlessly integrate within your school’s digital ecosystem. From Google Classroom and Canvas, through to single sign on, we have you covered.
We pride ourselves in highly effective professional learning so please don’t hesitate to share how you would like to develop in 2020.
It’s everyday teaching and learning that drives the development of EP. Your ongoing input helps shape the resource and positively impacts thousands of teachers and students daily.
We would love to know what you think and if you have any questions, ideas or suggestions. Please reach out to email@example.com
Thanks for your continued support.
By the way… you’ll note the logo tilts 7 degrees, paying homage to 2007 – the birth of EP!
