A few months ago Education Elements launched an online tool called Touchpoint. Touchpoint was designed for the districts we support. As our design & implementation consultants work with districts to support their personalized learning (PL) initiatives, the tool helps organize the project members, workshop schedules, related resources and action items in one place. If you’ve ever spent more than 5 minutes digging through your inbox and said something like, “What was the title of the email that had the meeting agenda attached?” you can bet your pretty penny that Touchpoint will be a lifesaver for you. All of your project stuff in one place -- heaven!
In the Silicon Valley, where Education Elements has its home base, the late Steve Jobs is an icon. The distinctive cool that he brought to Apple, Inc., the counter-corporate culture that he contributed to the technology industry, the creativity that became his brand—these are all virtues that new technology companies, sprouting almost daily here, seek to emulate. Some will succeed, a few will succeed spectacularly—think Google, Twitter, Uber—and many will fail. That’s the nature of start-ups, especially in the field of technology. Innovation is never easy.
