AUSTIN, Texas -- Ignite! Learning, Inc., a leading provider of technology-based curriculum for the 21st Century classroom, announced today an exciting new partnership with Promethean, a global leader and innovator in interactive learning technology.

The first company to integrate comprehensive curriculum with Promethean's Activexpression learner response system, Ignite! has been recognized as Promethean "Powered," the highest level of Promethean software accreditation. Enhancements to the current Ignite! curriculum include the new Connected Interface and Ignition Questions features. The addition of Ignition Questions gives teachers access to built-in engaging content that is standards-aligned, and becomes Promethean Powered with the use of learner response systems. By utilizing Activexpression integrated with Ignite! curriculum, teachers focus student engagement on the lesson's specific curricular objectives.

"Innovation is often the result of existing technologies coming together in new ways," said Ignite! Learning President and CEO, Alan Davis. "The marriage of Ignite! curriculum with Promethean's Activexpression system provides a powerful classroom experience--for every student--that is highly interactive and participatory. Mentally checking out is no longer an option for students. Teachers using Promethean with Ignite! Learning have 180 days of integrated digital content at their disposal, with the best teaching practices already embedded in the curriculum. We are excited about our partnership with Promethean. Both companies are reinventing the way students are learning in the classroom and this partnership gives us many new ways to do so."
