ScootPad releases the Free Forever classroom license for teachers

San Jose, CA – Mar 6, 2019 – ScootPad, the most personalized K-8 mastery platform in the world, released the Free Forever classroom license for teachers today.

Over 200,000 teachers around the world have turned to ScootPad to help students with personalized mastery of their curriculum. While most of them realize the benefits and witness the impact on student learning, the harsh reality is that a large number of teachers have neither the funding to continue using such technology nor the time to advocate for such resources.

“Teachers play a crucial role in helping technology have the maximum learning impact on students and we witnessed this phenomenon with ScootPad’s initial launch in 2012 and the widespread adoption and teacher feedback that followed quickly thereafter” said Bharat Kumar, co-founder of ScootPad. “Now with the Free Forever plan, available today, we hope to empower all teachers with a free classroom to help their students master concepts while saving them precious classroom time. The more teachers and students that use ScootPad, the more feedback and improvements we can deliver continuously, which will further enhance ScootPad’s effectiveness.”

Free Forever classroom plan offers each teacher one classroom with unlimited access to all the features and all 1,000+ standards and textbook aligned learning paths encompassing grade levels from K to 8, as well as both Math and ELA. With the free classroom, students can launch one adaptive practice per day in each subject, while teachers can assign one targeted practice per day and one assessment per month. Teachers also gain access to basic data and reports. This Free Forever classroom plan can be accessed year after year and will remain free indefinitely.

For teachers wanting unlimited learning for their students with unlimited adaptive practices, unlimited targeted practices, unlimited assessments and unlimited access to data and reports, they can upgrade their free classroom for as little as $1/day for however many days they like or have their school/district purchase an unlimited site license at $8/student/year. For more information about the unlimited license pricing or to get a price quote, please visit our pricing page at: https://www.scootpad.com/pricing.
