At FETC this week, Pearson announced enVisionMATH, a program that purports to merge print-based and digital learning. (Check out the animations flying off the page in the video below. Yeah, right. 🙁 )
With a press release tagline that reads “First-of-Its-Kind Elementary School Math Curriculum Meets the iPod Generation on Its Turf,” I was expecting for these glorious math movies to be available on mobile devices, like handhelds and mobile media players. In reviewing the information on their site though, it appears that this is all designed for desktop (and interactive whiteboard) use.
I hope I’m wrong (I haven’t seen the actual product) and that this is available in a mobile format. If not, Pearson has missed the boat.
