ConvergenceHealth Partners with the Mayerson Academy to Advance Technology-Driven Professional Development for Educators
Date:8/20/2013

Incline Village, NV (PRWEB) August 20, 2013

ConvergenceHealth officials today announced a partnership initiative between the global health technology company and the Mayerson Academy, a professional development vanguard focused on training educators and enhancing classroom success, to develop an advanced platform for technology-driven professional development tools. The integrated system will leverage proven distance coaching techniques and incorporate real-time and as-convenient interactive online coaching, resource access and individualized best practice training. The project targets an efficiency of scale capable of delivering personalized training and technology resources to thousands of classroom teachers.

For ConvergenceHealth (http://www.convergencehealth.com), a company which develops sophisticated technology solutions and software innovations that undergird new product evolution for major U.S. health insurers and global wellness providers, the opportunity to partner their technology resources with a visionary education organization such as the Mayerson Academy inspired company leaders. "We are genuinely excited to leverage our tools and expertise in this new application context," said Jay Handline, executive vice president of ConvergenceHealth. "We well understand the art and science of building out technologies that create transformative, individualized encounters inside a large-scale client base. We value this opportunity to bring that knowhow to a field as important and critical as education."

"Our mission and our work is to better prepare teachers to succeed and to teach effectively," said Dr. Neal Mayerson, board chairman of the Mayerson Academy. "Our partnership with ConvergenceHealth will allow us to do so on a much larger scale." Mayerson estimates that almost half of new teachers leave the field in their first five years--overwhelmed by the teaching challenges of classroom reality and underprepared to teach effectively.

"ConvergenceHealth is developing the technology backbone, integrated solutions and digital tools we need to exponentially affect professional development in education," said Mayerson. "With them we will ultimately reach thousands more teachers with coach/mentors who can see and assess in real time what a teacher is doing in class, coach interactively and provide the resources and best practice strategies needed to support and improve that individual teacher's effectiveness on the ground," Mayerson said. The product will be piloted this fall.
