New York, NY — LearningMate, a leading education technology company, announced today that the Museum of Science, Boston, one of the world’s largest science centers, has launched their online, interactive STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) curriculum products as part of its EiE® curriculum group, using LearningMate’s Frost Enterprise Learning Content Management System (LCMS).
The Museum of Science, Boston develops exhibits, programs, and curricula that empower children to become lifelong STEM learners and passionate problem solvers. By using Frost, the Museum is leveraging a suite of integrated products, including the Course Designer to author courses, the Learning Object Repository (LOR) to manage digital content and taxonomies, and a Learning Management System (LMS) to deliver the online courses. Frost allows EiE to support teachers with digital online curriculum products for engineering and computer science, while offering extensive flexibility in implementing EiE products, simplifying roster management, and supporting online instruction through a teaching and learning experience for students in grades preK-12. Leveraging Frost also enables the Museum to overcome the challenges posed by paper-based instructional materials, such as shipping products individually to teachers and limitations in updating content resulting from changes in the STEM curriculum.
“We aspire to transform global STEM education. Our preK-8 engineering and computer science curricula, resources, and teacher professional development innovate for the reality of today’s educational landscape, combining the best in theory, research, and teaching practice with powerful technology to enable hands-on, blended instruction,” said Heather Gunsallus, Vice President of STEM Education, Museum of Science, Boston. “LearningMate’s Frost product suite allows us to make this world-class curriculum accessible to the global STEM teaching community.”
“Our partnership with LearningMate has enabled us to reimagine our curricula in ways that best support the widest range of educator and student needs,” said Vince Sbarra, Director of Technology, Museum of Science, Boston.
“We are honored to work with such a well-respected learning institution and leader in the museum community as the Museum of Science, Boston,” said Abhijeet Sethi, SVP of Business Development at LearningMate. “Museums house a wealth of educational solutions and our hope is that LearningMate’s Frost platform allows the Museum of Science, Boston to unlock the potential of their resources while making them accessible to their members, educators, and students.”
