School in Your Pocket [Video]

 

Last summer our mobile solutions division teamed up with Alvarado ISD’s Director of Technology, Kyle Berger, to create the district app for Alvarado school district. Mobile Education has been a hot topic over the last few years and the chatter shows no sign of slowing down in 2012.

Mobile apps are a great tool for education in a variety of ways. Whether your providing textbooks online, engaging students in educational games, or creating additional revenue streams through in-app advertising and booster club sales, apps are a powerful way to engage teachers, students, and parents right in the palm of your hand.

Alvarado ISD and WorldLink Apps Release New Mobile Application

WorldLink Apps is proud to announce the release of Alvarado Independent School District’s mobile application for the Apple and Android Smartphone markets. Kyle Berger, Alvarado’s Executive Director of Technology Services, was introduced to WorldLink through the Verizon Wireless Business Solution Alliance Program last January. Over the last 5 months WorldLink has had the unique experience of partnering with one of the state’s most technologically progressive school districts.

WorldLink’s App Development team and Kyle Berger collaborated extensively to develop the official iPhone app of the Alvarado Independent School District. The app comes loaded with a large number of features including: district and individual school information, events, dates, bully report capabilities, homework resources, and many more for AISD students, parents, and staff.

“In today’s society we all work from our mobile devices. It only made sense to leverage that power to communicate and connect with our parents and students. We are excited to take this next step in communication, empowering our stake holders with all the tools they need in the palm of their hands. In conjunction with WorldLink I believe we have delivered the first feature rich k-12 application to the market.” – Kyle Berger, Executive Director of Technology Services, Alvarado Independent School District.
