A WatershED is an important point of division or transition between two phases or conditions.
Education is at a critical tipping point right now. It is the familiar transition between the old and the new. Technology, while not necessarily the impetus for this transition, is certainly a factor in the new world of learning.
Today's educators have to juggle many roles while adjusting to the digital tools, strategies and teaching methodologies that are required to educate the students of the 21st century, aka digital natives. You are not only responsible for teaching students, but in many ways, you are a mentor. You serve as a source of routine that our students crave as well as a guide for the future hopes and dreams of these young minds.
At Follett Software Company, we recognize the role that teachers and educators play in the future world that we are helping to shape. This is an ardent and dedicated task, filled with stumbles and triumphs. We want to enable educators like you to help this first step of discovery to the larger community by sharing the dreams you have for your students. We recognize that each individual answer is part of a whole solution. We want to be part of that solution.
Our project has been initiated to uncover and help fulfill the dreams that will help the community of education in their breakthrough. Our mission to be true partners in education through the fulfillment of dreams is our watershed.
