We are delighted to announce that INFORM Journeys (created by parent company, EDMIN) has been named as a top five finalist in a national competition to create an app that will help students navigate education and career pathways, including career and technical education (CTE). First Lady Michele Obama launched the Reach Higher Career App challenge in Fall 2015 asking for companies to create and submit apps to help students prepare for the future. EdGate's repository of CTE standards and other educational standards and our database of open educational resources (OER) has been incorporated inside the Journeys product. Plans are in the works to partner with publishers who may want to include their resources in the App so that students can readily find the right standards-aligned content at the right time.
The culmination of the challenge will be on demo. day at the White House in July. Best of luck team!
