Partnership to improve communication and streamline tools
Education Revolution, LLC, the creator of the award-winning Socrates Learning Platform, announced a technology partnership with Speakap, the provider of branded communication platforms that enable organizations to have secure, internal, two-way dialogue.
The platform’s successful deployment in schools has demonstrated the opportunity to improve communication between teachers, parents, and administrators. Through this partnership, the communication tools are able to work in conjunction with the current school communications networks while allowing seamless multi-organizational communication. Due to risks related to traditional social platforms, schools have historically had reservations about deploying communication solutions. Education Revolution’s partnership with Speakap will allow Socrates to provide the powerful social features that schools seek within a private communication and engagement platform, creating streamlined tools that improve communication throughout the school.
“Adding Speakap’s private social platform capabilities to our educational offering allows for our teaching tools to become part of a sophisticated communication network that uses modern communication techniques without exposing information to the public,” stated Dr. Ralph Thomas co-founder and President of Socrates. He continued, “Socrates provides powerful information to teachers, parents, and administrators. Using the Speakap’s communication platform, users will be able to share and act upon that information to improve educational outcomes and create a strong culture within the schools.”
“Socrates is an innovative and powerful solution that helps improve the learning experience and results for teachers and students,” Erwin Van Der Vlist, co-founder and CEO of Speakap shared. “The incredible reporting provided by Socrates gives users more reason to share information and results between classrooms and within schools. The need to share relevant and meaningful information across organizations was the inspiration behind our product. We are excited to partner with Socrates to bring our communication platform to schools in the United States and Mexico,” said Van Der Vlist.

About the Socrates Learning Platform for Schools
Socrates is a revolutionary learning platform that dynamically adjusts to the individual learning needs of each student across any educational content. Socrates is already deployed in elementary and middle schools. Socrates is directly available to students, teachers, schools, parents/guardians (including for homeschooling), libraries and museums. Socrates includes various “Command Centers”, including the Teacher Command Center that provides a powerful teacher assistant that lets teachers know when and where each student needs help. The Testing and Benchmarking Module allows teachers to automatically create, administer, grade and compare tests to quickly and with-ease evaluate student progress. The Parent & Tutor Command Center connects the home and classroom. Socrates games and gamification keep the child wanting to play more – the more they play, the more they learn.
