I’m proud to announce I’ve been named a MasterMind and joined the team of educational visionaries at KP Publishing! KP stands for, putting Knowledge into Practice. Using gamification and Artificial Intelligence, KP does just that while making learning more engaging and effective.
20 years ago, when KP Started, content in education was flat and little innovation had occurred. There was little evidence of innovative thinking related to instructional practices and materials. Even as the world continues to dramatically transform, very little has changed in the way teachers teach and students consume education materials.
KP believes There is a great opportunity for innovation! I’m proud to now be a part of the MasterMind team making that happen! KP Visionary Team — KP Publishing Universe (kppubu.com)
