FableVision and Westchester Publishing Services Enter Into Partnership Blending Print and Digital, Ahead of EdNet 2017
As K-12 education and edtech elite converge on Scottsdale Arizona for the annual EdTech Conference two well known companies in educationare set to show off the fruits of their new partnership.
Westchester Publishing Services has been serving the needs of major publishers in education since 1969. Macmillan, The Harvard Univeristy Press and The MIT Press are just some of the educational publishers they work with. While you may recognize these companies as higher ed focused, Westchester Publishing Services launched a division focused on K-12 earlier this year, called Westchester K-12 Publishing Services.
The company didn’t waste anytime in finding a solid partner both in the digital space and K-12. FableVision, which has been around for 21 years, is that partner.
Fablevision has been driving the 4c’s (plus 1) creativity, communication, collaboration, critical thinking and compassion since it’s founding by creativity champion Peter Reynolds a New York Times best selling author. Peter’s books The Dot, Ish, Rose’s Garden, I’m Here, So Few of Me, The North Star and Sky Color inspire children and “grown up children” with his messages about authentic learning, creativity, bravery, empathy, and courageous self-expression.
They’re widely known products are a hit among students in grades K-5. One of the key’s to their success has been immersing themselves in their products and audience. Part of this is achieved by being co-located in Boston with the Boston Children’s Museum on Children’s Warf in a building now known as the Yakey Center for Children and Learning. This collaborative environment with some of Boston’s most well known educational companies, allows for deep creativity for the company.
In this new partnership the two companies print and digital to serve the K-12 market.
“We’re very excited to be partnering with FableVision. Print and digital media are complementary tools used by educators to help students succeed, and this partnership allows us to best serve the full spectrum of the educational market. By leveraging FableVision’s proven digital media prowess and Westchester’s decades of experience in the print market, we’re able to provide educational publishers the expertise they need to create engaging new material or reimagine legacy content in accessible formats for learners of all needs.” Kevin J. Gray, Director of K-12 Services said in a statement.
This week, during their round table sessions at EdNet they will Show how the print and digital aspects of educational content can effectively work together. Their round table sessions are today and tomorrow during the conference.
