"We are creating a tool that will give teachers the opportunity to really change their way of teaching and impact student learning. It's a tool to help teachers teach better and to help students to learn in a different way. With the impetus of common core, we're really looking at changing teaching and learning and we feel that this tool is going to be something that is easy for teachers. It's going to be one-stop-shopping that they can then personalize and customize to meet the needs of their students."
