Move This World Partners with D2L Brightspace to Increase Impact of Social Emotional Learning Curriculum
Partnership gives schools using Move This World a user-friendly platform and improved reporting and analytics to improve social emotional learning
New York, NY (May. 22, 2020) — Move This World (MTW), a leading provider of social emotional learning curriculum for PreK-12, is excited to announce a new partnership with global learning technology leader D2L. Move This World will use D2L’s Brightspace as their new online learning platform, bringing social emotional learning experiences to hundreds of thousands of students across the United States.
“We are thrilled to play a part in the vital and innovative work that MTW is doing — and to support social and emotional learning in fun and interactive ways,” said Puneet Arora, Chief Revenue Officer at D2L. “By using technology in such a creative and purposeful way, MTW is transforming lives and schools all over the world — and that’s very exciting to be a part of.”
Move This World cultivates students’ social and emotional learning (SEL) skills that enable them to navigate the complex and rapidly changing realities of our world. Students learn how to manage their emotions, navigate challenges and build healthy relationships. In addition to building core SEL skills and preparing students for the future, MTW helps strengthen school culture by creating a common language around SEL and allowing everyone in the school community to effectively communicate with one another. Move This World’s new partnership with D2L will empower school communities with the strategies to become safer learning environments where teachers and students can grow, adapt, connect and navigate life’s challenges with each other.
D2L’s Brightspace platform easily supports video content in a user- and mobile-friendly way with the analytic capabilities to support schools. Teachers will have more flexibility using MTW on the D2L platform, improving the ability to integrate SEL throughout the school day. Additionally, D2L’s platform will make it easy for educators to navigate content by standard, providing more accuracy and accountability for teachers, schools, and districts.
“When we began working with more classrooms, it became evident that we needed a platform that could grow with our expanded video and content offerings while providing an engaging and easy-to-use experience,” said MTW Vice President of Partnerships Kathy Krupa. “In D2L, we’ve found a platform that not only enables us technologically but also is a partner that supports our mission.”
