MindPrint Learning, the only online platform that enables schools to enhance their MTSS practices through affordable, objective cognitive data, today announced a major partnership and $2 million in financing.
The research partnership with Digital Promise is funded by the Walton Family Foundation and aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of MindPrint Learning’s solution in improving teacher self-efficacy, student self-efficacy, and student achievement in nine districts representing more than 5,000 students and 500 teachers. “We are excited to work with MindPrint Learning to explore how supporting teachers’ understanding of learner variability could make a difference in teacher efficacy and student outcomes,” said Barbara Pape, senior director of Digital Promise’s Learner Variability Project. “MindPrint Learning’s unique approach to supporting student cognitive variability supports a universal classroom challenge.”
MindPrint Learning’s CEO Nancy Weinstein added, “We look forward to showcasing how MindPrint accelerates student achievement, regardless of zip code. Our methodology, based on over 20 years of cognitive research, works for all types of schools—urban, suburban and rural— and for students at all performance levels—gifted, struggling academically, or anywhere in between. We are so grateful to the Walton Family Foundation for their generosity in funding this efficacy research. “
This key partnership follows the company’s recently announced fundraising led by Martinson Ventures. Other investors in the round included Edulab Capital Partners, Scout Fund, and individual edtech investors Mike Bingle, Jean Hammond, Gillian Prozes, and Susan Wolford. Funds will be used to fuel MindPrint Learning’s growth beyond its core northeast market. John Martinson, Prozes, and Wolford also joined the company’s board of directors. Additionally, Dr. Sandy Husk, former CEO of ASCD and AVID, will join the company as Executive-in-Residence. Educators who are interested in learning more or participating in the efficacy research should contact Digital Promise’s director of research, Dr. Jennifer Stillman.
