about-us

Net Texts believed the current education system called for some much needed innovation and looked to replace expensive, printed textbooks with engaging, easy to use tablets. The idea was to develop an iPad app and a content-rich Website that organizes and delivers the wealth of Open Educational Resources available on the Internet.

For the 2011-12 school year, the company tested out this concept with 6 schools in Atlanta. The 8th grade classes put aside their textbooks and relied on Net texts courses, delivered 1:1 on iPads for each teacher and student. As the year progressed, Net Texts took many visits to Atlanta and spent a lot of time with the teachers and students. They offered invaluable feedback that was used to improve the system for a broad release in 2012.

In the Fall of 2012, Net Texts started working with Burlington Public Schools in Massachussetts, one of the first schools in the United States to go 1:1 with iPads. We have helped them create over 20 multimedia courses as they work to build a digital curriculum that will continue to evolve and improve.
