Irish based Wriggle
, a 1:1 mobile learning partner, today announced a new online store that is designed to ensure a seamless transition to digital schoolbags. The Wriggle Store
will enable parents to purchase content and support for their child’s iPad, with the aim of lessening the administrative burden for a school. The store automates the process of eBook ordering and delivery, allowing each parent to configure the appropriate bundle for their child, depending on their subjects and requirements.
Wriggle is attempting to transform the education system to meet the needs of the 21st century workforce. Its 1:1 mobile learning programme gives pupils access to technology, engaging and effective content and teachers who can fully utilise these tools. The mobile learning programme also replaces the heaviest items in the schoolbag, the textbooks, with digital versions. Students still have copybooks and workbooks, but without bulky textbooks. The Wriggle 1:1 mobile learning programme aims to transform the teaching and learning environment in schools by putting new technology and engaging content into the hands of every student.
Director of Education at Wriggle, Beryl Furlong, explained that the store has been launched to make the move to digital schoolbags as easy as possible for everyone involved. Furlong added, “The Wriggle Store is essentially a one-stop shop for parents, allowing them to purchase everything they need in one place. Allowing parents to purchase directly will dramatically reduce the administrative workload for the school and ensure a smooth and accurate roll-out of the 1:1 mobile learning programme.”
