CoreCheck out the Core-LX Mastery Learning Platform at the Emerging Technologies Forum, June 26, 2016 in Denver

Boulder, CO – 24 June 2016 – The State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA), the principal membership association representing U.S. state and territorial digital learning leaders, has invited Core Learning Exchange (Core-LX) to join its fourth annual cohort of Emerging Private Sector Partners. Attendees to the Emerging Technologies Forum on Sunday, June 26, 2016, at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Denver, can check out Core Learning Exchange’s Mastery Learning Platform during the 8:30-10:30 AM new partners’ demo session.

“SETDA’s members are among the nation’s leading advocates for equity of access, digital content, online assessment, interoperability and digital learning: all values central to Core Learning Exchange,” notes Jeff Katzman, Founder and CEO of Core Learning Exchange. “Being able to work with these visionaries is both an honor and an inspiration to take an even more proactive role in addressing state and national education priorities.”

The Core-LX Learning Mastery Platform represents a new product category, offering educators a technology that meshes exactly with the mission of the SETDA Emerging Partner Program. The Core-LX Mastery Learning Platform was designed to make personalized, blended, competency-based learning available to all students, regardless of ability, economic or social status.

As a member of this class of 2016, Core Learning Exchange will engage SETDA’s members in intentional, in-person and virtual dialogues on how micro-credentialing technology can transform education on the district and state level, with technologies that make competency-based learning – and its documented improvements in academic and CTE educational outcomes – a reality for today’s K-12 students.

Core Learning Exchange is a Boulder, Colorado-based education technology start up and current member of the BoomStartUp Accelerator in Salt Lake City, UT. The Core-LX ecosystem includes advisors Michael Horn and Steven Hodas; learning content providers Florida Virtual School, BetterMarks (math content in English, Spanish and German), Highlights for Children, NuSkool, SAS Curriculum Pathways, LearnZillion, Khan Academy, CrashCourse, as well as over 30 self-publishers. Entrepreneur Magazine recently named Core-LX as one of “5 Fascinating Edtech Companies From National Education Week.”

The State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit membership association launched by state education agency leaders in 2001 to serve, support and represent their emerging interests and needs with respect to the use of technology for teaching, learning, and school operations.
