2Simple Scores A 'Home Run' In The USA

Our adventure in the USA began in 2010 with school teacher Stephanie Lear. Her school (Brown School, Michigan) is twinned with a school in Wales (UK) and that's how she first found out about Purple Mash. She asked if she could use Purple Mash in her classroom, and we thought that sounded like a great idea. She's been using it ever since and has had great results. 

 

Watch our short video (left hand side) to hear what Stephanie, her colleagues, her students and their parents think about Purple Mash. 

 

2Simple products are sold around the world in countries such as Australia, South Africa and Japan. We've always intended to move into the American market but we wanted to make sure we were 100% ready. That's why in June 2013 we arranged for Purple Mash & 2Build a Profile (our two main products) to be reviewed by an independent panel of 6 American senior academic professional. The panel included:

 

  • Themy Sparangis: Head of Instructional Technology – LA Unified School District
  • Heather Beck: Chief Academic Officer – Jefferson County Public Schools 
  • Diana Clapp: Fremont County School District 6 Superintendent - Wyoming 
  • Sheryl Abshire: Chief Technology Officer, Calcasieu Parish - Louisiana
  • Chris Liang-Vergara:  Director of Institutional Technology for Personalized Learning at First Line Schools - Louisiana 

 

Here's what they had to say:

 

Purple Mash 

“There’s no doubt the product is rich and better than anything I’ve seen in a long time in terms of creativity and student development of a work product.”

“What resonates is the user interface for preK, kindergarten, and primary grades - getting early-elementary kids into digital literacy.”

“You’ve nailed participatory learning."

 

2Build  a Profile

“For any [district] that’s going with mobile-learning initiatives, which is where the country is headed, you’ve nailed it here. I can’t think of anyone else who has done this. This is really, really good.”

"This is a no-brainer in the world of accountability... It’s very exciting and very relevant.”

“For me, this is a home run in many different ways. ... This is what we’ve been hoping for, come to reality.”
