SBG partnered with the AppleTree Institute for Education Innovation, a Washington, D.C.-based education research nonprofit and network of schools to advance AppleTree’s learning management system. SBG conducted a systems architecture analysis, to design a new system combining web and mobile application technologies in support of AppleTree’s advanced, assessment-based teaching model.
The new system integrates AppleTree’s existing applications and processes into a comprehensive learning management system.  The newly designed system will allow AppleTree to automate its student and teacher assessment process, allowing faster input and more sophisticated reporting, better organize its curriculum materials, and enhance its professional development initiatives. The system will incorporate the Experience API, the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s next generation standards for training technology, to increase AppleTree’s ability to track and measure student’s and teacher’s learning experiences across a variety of different platforms and technologies.
