Riverside P. S. Edwin Pilot Program


A pathway built around listening

The first classrooms began to experience Edwin in September 2017, and a few months later we visited Huntsville, Ontario to see the transformation of a digital classroom at Riverside Public School. The Edwin pilot program ushers in a new way to look at 21st century education, and we hear stories of its creation from students, educators, and developers alike—including Nelson CEO, Steve Brown:

When we first talked to people about Edwin, we got some funny looks. But with the involvement of some thought-provoking educators, we brought Edwin to reality.

Direct testimony from students addresses the ways in which Edwin accommodates multiple styles of personalized learning. Parents reflect on positive changes in the first few months of their children using Edwin. And Kate Pellerin, Grade 8 teacher at Riverside, sees a transformative path for the Edwin platform in her classroom:

Clearly this is a company that sees the future of education, and realizes that it has to be interactive, it has to be digital, and it has to be engaging for the kids.
