New partnership allows schools to easily implement scalable personalized and blended learning programs

[Orem, UT] – September 8, 2015 – Agilix Labs, Inc., an innovator in student empowerment and the power behind the next-generation personalized and blended learning solution, Buzz, is joining forces through an independent software vendor (ISV) partnership agreement with PowerSchool to revolutionize personalized learning.

PowerSchool, the most widely used web-based student information system (SIS), supports more than 13 million students around the world. PowerSchool enables today’s educators to make timely decisions that impact student performance while creating a collaborative environment for parents, teachers and students to work together in preparing 21st century learners for the future.

“For many of our nation’s educators, PowerSchool is the Student Information System (SIS) of choice,” said Curt Allen, CEO of Agilix. “We’re excited to expand our long-term relationship with PowerSchool in the service of students learning in a personalized environment and the hardworking teachers who guide them. With Buzz, we’re putting even more kids on the path to achievement. We’re proud to be part of a rising tide of technology-fueled blended learning.”

Buzz will provide turnkey integration with PowerSchool, multiplying its effectiveness by:

  • Encouraging student ownership. Teachers are easily able to curate work as students follow their unique path to specific learning objectives, choosing from multiple content options to craft their own tailored approach.
  • Offering helpful feedback. Buzz prompts students to regularly assess their own interest, effort and understanding then provides feedback teachers can use to coach them to a successful outcome.
  • Fostering teacher-student interaction. Teachers can hover less and coach more, heeding student-triggered alerts at learning checkpoints to offer insight, award a badge or start a discussion.
  • Spanning multiple education models. Whether you teach from a competency, proficiency/ mastery, blended, or project-based method, Buzz adapts to you, offering templates that can be used as-is or adapted to individual students, groups or the whole classroom.

“Educators are actively seeking digital learning solutions that enable them to deploy best-of-breed applications and content that fully meet the needs of their students,” continued Allen. “Our Buzz customers value seamless integration with PowerSchool, so it is a high priority for us to deliver a new level of integrated learning solutions.”
