Plug & Play K-12 Curriculum And Instruction

2018 PISA Test Results

A Solution For Next-Gen K-12 Education

One emerging cost-effective solution … is hiring turnkey providers capable of immediately teaching entire subject categories to augment or replace existing programs.”

— Lawrence Allen

PLANO, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, June 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The K-12 landscape is transforming, driven by the urgent need for alternatives to public-school education. This demand, together with the advent of technical innovation, has spurred leading-edge new options in the private school and home-schooling sector, creating a generational opportunity to dramatically improve the way American school children are educated.

Remote learning is a rapidly evolving feature of this transformation. Though recorded video series and interactive websites are great tools, they are only effective when supporting the human touch of a classical curriculum taught by exceptionally talented and motivated teachers. Plus, the cost and complexity of replacing a long-established system such as K-12 education is a daunting challenge.

One emerging, cost-effective solution for home-school co-ops and private schools alike is the concept of Plug & Play curriculum and instruction: hiring turnkey providers capable of immediately teaching entire subject categories to augment or replace existing programs. And companies like Singapore Academy USA℠ are leading just such innovative solutions.

The Singapore school system delivers #1 student scores across the board in standardized global testing (see inset). STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) are Singapore’s strongest subjects and Singapore Academy USA℠ is making both the curriculum and “Live From Singapore” daily instruction from top Singapore teachers available to American families and educational organizations. Once the Plug & Play module is installed into an organization’s overall education plan, Singapore Academy USA℠ executes end-to-end fulfillment of the entire school year’s curriculum plan and live instruction for those subjects. The client — home-school co-ops and private schools — need only provide the physical forum for the students (if in-person learning) and monitor implementation.

The advantages are clear. First and foremost, American students benefit from the world’s best STEM curriculum and live instruction. Second, educational organizations gain nimbleness in scaling up or down based on changing enrollment without being hampered by fixed costs. They also gain instant expertise and knowledge in the subjects taught. And, they can menu-select and test-market specialty classes at no risk to determine student body interest and whether to include the classes long term. All this happens while adding exciting, competitive classes into their overall offering.

Plug & Play solutions help start-ups accelerate their time to market, bypassing hiring and operations complexity. Established organizations reduce costs while quickly incorporating the latest teaching innovations. And best of all, organizations that hire Singapore Academy USA℠ to teach classes will enjoy the service orientation and agility that are fast becoming the hallmarks of next-gen K-12 education. We would love to show you how we can help your organization grow, while reducing costs and, most importantly, help your students improve their STEM scores.

B2B Business Experts’ Marketing Solutions Help Businesses Avoid Google Ads Mistakes

Businesses can improve their Google Ads cost-efficiency with B2B Business Experts’ dynamic marketing strategies and consulting solutions.

CLEARWATER, FL, USA, June 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — B2B Business Experts identified five Google Ads mistakes that can cost a business a large amount of money. The marketing agency offers insight and effective software solutions to help improve Google Ad marketing for its clients.

Achieve Greater Results by Avoiding Common Google Ads Mistakes

Running Google Ads allows businesses to create targeted advertisements, ensuring the right people in the right locations see the ads at the right time. The service offers a host of other benefits, such as click measurement and cost controls.

However, businesses can fall victim to some costly Google Ads mistakes. Jeremy Haug, founder of B2B Business Experts, identified five ways that businesses are wasting their Google Ads marketing budget and how to counter them.

● Nonexistent or inaccurate conversion tracking: Use a customer relationship management (CRM) system together with Google Ads to cross-check ad leads and conversions to determine the ad campaign’s success.
● Wrong geotargeting or locations: Adjust the Google Ads location options to only include serviceable areas. Targeting locations that a business does not serve does not provide leads or conversions.
● Impersonal sales ads and content: Video content and YouTube ads are necessary to build positive and long-term relationships, particularly with B2B clients.
● Failure to retarget low-performing ads: Most ad and website traffic does not convert, which is why it’s crucial to retarget ads towards more promising leads.
● Lack of click fraud and bot prevention solutions: Bots and click fraud can waste online ad budgets and potentially result in stolen information.
High-tier Solutions for a Guaranteed Increase in Marketing ROI

B2B Business Experts helps companies to expand their businesses and increase their marketing ROI by up to 30% in less than two months. One of the dynamic solutions the agency offers is the use of a top-rated Google Ads click fraud prevention software.

B2B Business Experts use ClickCease to ensure clients get the most out of their Google Ads. ClickCease prevents harmful sources, including bots, competitors, and click farms, from seeing and clicking on clients’ online ads.

The agency sets up and incorporates the software in its custom marketing plans. The software helps them boost Google Ads and overall results by 20% to 40% compared to other options.

Brand Interest Piques for 'Networked Digital Signage,' 'Social Business': Bombora Company Surge(R), Merkle's McLaren

“Social business” is experiencing a dramatic rise in interest, particularly among brands, according to intent data measured by Bombora Company Surge(R)

'Advertising solutions' was another key search term among both agencies and marketers in recent weeks, after experiencing a dip in interest in late May.”

— Merkle B2B CEO Michael McLaren

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, June 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — With each passing day we enter a new stage of our "next normal." It’s been remarkable to watch how marketing has evolved over the past few months to meet new habits and demands of consumers in a hybrid world – one that takes omnichannel strategies to the next level.

After a dormant year, the travel industry predicts domestic travel to bounce back in the third quarter to pre-pandemic levels. For marketers looking to get back into out-of-home (OOH) advertising as lockdowns end, digital-out of-home (DOOH) presents additional opportunities to reach target audiences. It’s no surprise, then, that “networked digital signage” was a trending topic last week among marketers, as measured by Bombora Company Surge(R) — pointing to a growing interest in DOOH advertising, which empowers advertisers to create immersive, memorable, and often interactive campaigns. As people emerge from the pandemic and travel begins to fully take off, digital out-of-home can take the benefits of traditional OOH even further through improved metrics and better targeting.

I’ve written in the past about how the lack of in-person events and communal activities has led to a continued rise in online social networking and apps. This week, I would like to turn your attention to “social business” or “social enterprise.” Defined as, “a business created and designed to address a social problem,” intent data show “social business” experiencing a dramatic rise in interest among brands recently.

Anyone with a smartphone has experienced firsthand the powerful role social media has had in our everyday lives from the economy, politics and entertainment to civil unrest and everything in between. But what happens when social and business are intertwined, and influence becomes the real currency? Widespread use of ethical practices such as impact investing, conscious consumerism, and corporate social responsibility programs mean that now is an opportune time for brands looking to make the leap to social impact by tapping the next generation of digital talent.

“Advertising solutions” was another key search term among both agencies and marketers in recent weeks, after experiencing a dip in interest in late May. 2021 has been a year of transition, and with that come extreme growing pains in nearly every sector. One of the hard-learned lessons of the pandemic was to prioritize people’s rapid learning, which is why today’s fastest-growing companies are building agility, mastering adaptiveness and operating around outcomes. Rather than build operations around a defined customer journey, channel, or product life cycle, marketers must focus on meeting customers’ real needs – and collaborate across the enterprise to anticipate shifting customer behaviors, and recalibrate offerings, value propositions, and experiences accordingly.

Microbe Formulas Leadership Team Adjustment

Dr. Todd Watts, Microbe Formulas CEO

Microbe Formulas: Meridian, Idaho

Founding Doctor Is Now CEO at Idaho-Based Health Company

MERIDIAN, ID, UNITED STATES, June 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Microbe Formulas, an Idaho-based health company, has adjusted their leadership team. Ryan Riley, former CEO, has moved into the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) role, while co-founder Dr. Todd Watts has moved into the CEO role.

While Microbe was established in 2017, Riley joined the co-founding doctors as CEO in March 2018. The doctors approached him three years ago to help them build the infrastructure for their existing business.

Regarding the change, Riley says, “As the company has continued to evolve, I have seen opportunities for technology development to better serve our customers. My passion for technology and knowing I could make a meaningful impact there led me to propose this change.”

He adds, “The leadership team was surprised! But it was a logical and strategic transition that has only magnified our overall company goals.”

On the day of the transition, Dr. Jay Davidson, co-founder of Microbe, said, “I am proud of who Ryan is, what he has done, and what he will continue to do. We wouldn’t be where we are today without him. For him to recognize this need and choose this role change on his own shows his big heart and amazing character.”

Along with his role as an owner and founding doctor, Dr. Todd has acted as co-CEO since January 2021 and assumed the CEO role in April. This made for a seamless transition for the leadership team and company as a whole.

Dr. Todd explains, “I started this company alongside Dr. Jay with the goal of changing lives with all-natural products, just as I’ve experienced with my own personal health. Since day one, I have strived to be a hands-on owner and founder, and now as CEO I am even more involved in the day-to-day operations. I feel honored to lead and work alongside such an impressive group of people.”

About Microbe Formulas: Microbe Formulas is a wellness company that believes a “healthy microbiome is a healthy you.” This starts with opening drainage pathways, supporting energy at the mitochondrial level, and detoxing unwanted substances. Their core values are front and center in the company mission: “Creating solutions that work is what we do. Restoring hope and health is who we are.”

Will there be a #boycotthungary? Hollywood faces a decision

Hungarian people protesting ath House of Parliament against the anti-LGBTQ law

As the Hungarian film industry protests against the severely discriminatory law, Hollywood giants are still silent on Hungary's new anti-LGBTQ legislation.

Any boycott on the current situation would in fact put not the Hungarian government but Hungarian filmmakers and their families in an awkward position.”

— Budapest Reporter correspondent

BUDAPEST, HUNGARY, June 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hollywood has always been sensitive to gay rights. In 2016, a #boycottgeorgia campaign was launched over the then anti-LGBTQ law in Georgia, which caused major film studios to stop filming.

Now the situation is quite similar. Hungary’s governing party passed a law that bans the dissemination to minors of content deemed to promote homosexuality and gender change — a move that has drawn condemnation from leading broadcasters and cast a shadow over one of the world’s top production hubs.

In a statement provided to Variety, WarnerMedia says it “does not tolerate homophobia, prejudice or discrimination.”

“We stand against all forms of homophobia, prejudice or discrimination and are proud to believe in an inclusive and collaborative society that is enriched by a diversity of voices and experiences,” the statement read. “The enduring power of all of our stories can open our eyes to the world, to each other and to new and different perspectives.”

Currently, Marvel's Moon Knight series is filming in Budapest, Legendary's Borderlands has just finished filming, and the crew of Disney's Poor Things has arrived in the country. There are industry rumours that Shadow and Bone, famous for its diversity, could also return to Hungary for a second season – Budapest Reporter reports.

Hungarian film commissioner Csaba Káel told Variety that the anti-LGBTQ legislation, which was tacked onto a separate bill that increased the penalties for pedophilia, is "principally strengthening the child protection system," and expressed hopes that the industry would not be affected by any potential backlash.

Meanwhile the government's ambassador to Peru, Gábor Kaleta, was given a suspended prison sentence for possessing 19,000 paedophile photos in 2020 after being taken home. This judgment was blatantly mild from all points of view. The law that has now been passed makes this offence punishable by up to life imprisonment without pardon. Apparently Orban is very lenient with his own. That is why the current anti-LGBTQ law can be nothing more than an election campaign and a distraction.

"Hungary offers highly skilled film professionals, world-class facilities, amazing locations and a generous tax rebate to the international film community," Hungarian film commissioner Csaba Káel said "I firmly believe all these aspects are of more importance than politics."

The Hungarian film industry and cultural scene are also protesting against the seriously discriminatory law. In response to our question, they said "Any boycott on the current situation would in fact put not the Hungarian government but Hungarian filmmakers and their families in an awkward position." The NGOs representing artists and film professionals are preparing a joint action.

Many Hungarian filmmakers expressed their solidarity – BpR reported – among them at ORIGO Film Studio the staff tied a rainbow-coloured ribbon on the ORIGO logo.

"There is serious work and dedication in all 24,000 Hungarian film professionals to make sure that the productions that choose Hungary are completed on time, within budget and that all crew members enjoy their time here. A law passed during an election period would do no good if it undid this work. Political ideologies, parties and presidents are constantly changing, in the United States as well as here in Hungary. But the films made here remain. We believe that Hollywood's decision makers are smarter than a hasty decision," said Mihály Tóth, Marketing Director of ORIGO Film Studio.

First Remotely Directed Feature Film, #MyCorona, and Making-of Documentary Ready for Distribution

Silicon Prairie Center

#MyCorona

“It Took a Lockdown to Unlock Their Hearts”

US & UK, June 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Wonderphil Entertainment and Silicon Prairie Center Studios announce the completion of the romantic comedy feature film, #My Corona. The film is also accompanied by a documentary, Directing Remotely and Filmmaking During the Pandemic: The Making of #MyCorona. Shot at the end of May 2020, the full-length feature film is the first to be directed remotely in its entirety. #MyCorona was recently awarded Best Picture by the Los Angeles Motion Picture Festival.

The romantic comedy, #MyCorona, is set in the days leading up to and during California’s stay-at-home directive at the start of the 2020 pandemic. In a Los Angeles apartment block, self-isolating neighbors, who barely know each other, are forced to rely on each other, even though they often don’t share the same views. These unusual neighbors slowly start finding their “new normal.”

The creative spirit of filmmaker Kirk Zeller was not thwarted by the social distancing measures and lockdown restrictions in California. These forced him to postpone the project he was already working on – Gorn was already in the pre-production stages of a modern interpretation of The Picture of Dorian Gray.

The idea for #MyCorona hit Phil Gorn and his producer, Kirk Zeller, at the onset of the pandemic, and they knew that this was the right story to tell at the time. “The timeless theme of a romantic comedy makes this a feature that surpasses the heavy-hitting issues of the pandemic,” says Gorn.

The challenges of working on a film with all the restrictions in place were met with a dose of good humor and some filming methods that were never used in the industry before.

Gorn directed #MyCorona remotely from San Francisco throughout filming because the set was 1,500 miles away in Nebraska. “ While watching the film, people will realize that there are never more than two actors in any scene. This was done to ensure physical distancing and stay-at-home directives. We also took all the necessary measures to safeguard everyone on set,” according to Gorn.

Other pioneering methods used on the closed set included the use of technology for better communication, live feeds, and plenty of collaboration. Phil Gorn told the Hollywood reporter: “Everyone was responsible for themselves because of the need for a smaller production team and a tiny budget, this included the actors’ wardrobe and makeup.”

Despite being set in the time of the pandemic, this romantic comedy has a theme that is as relevant now as it will be for generations to come. Self-reflection and friendship are always important, especially during stressful times.

This is what the two young neighbors, Alex (Cooper Tomlinson) and Zoe (Mya Hudson) discover as they try to cope with being couped in their apartments with time to kill and extremely thin walls. Throughout the movie, the film touches on human fears and uncertainties as we meet the other characters.

In the documentary, Directing Remotely and Filmmaking During the Pandemic: The Making of #MyCorona, the filmmaker and his crew showcase how they managed to complete the film while directing remotely.

The inclusion of behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the eight cast members, including Cecil Glenn (Whoomp There It Is and related GEICO commercial), Crystal Carson (General Hospital, Who’s That Girl), and James Huang (Nightcrawler, General Hospital). Because of the closed set, the cast and crew stayed on location. This meant they all had some interesting views to share about acting during the pandemic, the closed set, and the ground-breaking filming methods used for the production.

The documentary is on the official selection of the film Cannes, London, Tokyo, Montreal, Miami, New York, and Los Angeles film festivals. #MyCorona has featured in some major publications due to its innovative remote movie-making and because of its theme, a topic that affected almost everyone on the planet this past year.

Producers Phil Gorn and Kirk Zeller are working on finalizing the digital distribution of the first remotely directed feature film, #MyCorona, and the documentary about it, with a DVD release date of June 17, 2021 on the Silicon Prairie Center Studios website.

Wonderphil Entertainment founder Phil Gorn is an independent filmmaker that is interested in representing all genres of film in all markets. Kirk Zeller is the founder of Silicon Prairie Center Studios and he believes in creative and innovative startups. This was the ideal collaboration for the making of #My Corona.
