Earlier this week we announced that Sanoma Learning intends to acquire Iddink Group, a leading educational platform and service provider.
Pupils and teachers especially appreciate “blended learning solutions”: mashing up physical and digital approaches to inspire learning. However the digital element of blended learning in schools needs a boost.
Together, we want to accelerate the digital transformation of education
Together with Iddink and in close cooperation with schools and other partners in the market, we want to accelerate the digital transformation of education. Sanoma Learning invests heavily each and every year in new blended learning solutions. Iddink Group is also a frontrunner on the digital transformation, with amongst others the leading platforms Magister and Eduarte and intelligence service TIG.
Thanks to digital, we will in the future be able to serve pupils with tailored learning materials which play seamlessly on learning platforms in schools. We believe this will enable personalisation, increase the motivation of pupils, and support the work of the teacher. Positive news for learning and teaching!
Iddink Group and Malmberg & VAN IN will be independent units Sanoma Learning. Naturally, Iddink Group will continue to collaborate closely with other publishers; future solutions and platforms we create will be available and open for the entire market. This is what schools are asking of us and what will benefit pupils and teachers the most. Open platforms, populated and integrated with great and up-to-date blended learning content, available to all. Malmberg and VAN IN will of course, in turn, also continue to cooperate with other educational service providers.
I’m really excited about this development, which I think is going to help us to make a great leap forward in serving schools, especially as we go through the digital transformation together!
Looking forward >>
