PHILADELPHIA, PA, June 17, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- While Summer is a time away from school for most children, finding way to engage children in learning opportunities is increasingly important, especially for early learners (nursery thru 2nd grade ). PledgeCents, Inc., the fundraising site which helps to bring resources and opportunities to classrooms across the country by alleviating funding needs, is partnering with providers of early education learning platform to serve as an alternative to the cost by providing teachers the ability to fund the best products directly through its PledgeCents Marketplace. The most recent partner focussing on early child development, Tiggly, offers a range of dynamic products for nursery thru 2nd grade designed and developed by experts in early childhood education and instructional technology. The partnership enables teachers and parents to choose among 6 Tiggly packages that turn a tablet into powerful math and literacy learning opportunities by combining physical manipulatives and digital learning.
"We continue to be impressed by the innovative approaches that we're seeing in early education, but the way Tiggly is leveraging technology to deploy their research based curriculum while still creating an environment where early learners are able to use their hands and physically see outcome really stood out to us," said Ricky Johnson, co-founder of PledgeCents. "The team behind Tiggly seems to have found the ideal combination of digital and physical components, and we are really excited to make it easier to get their products into the hands of more early learners."
Through the partnership teachers and schools will be able to utilize PledgeCents to seamlessly generate a fundraising page to cover the cost of Tiggly's education kits and packages that include a variety of learning apps and interactive manipulatives. The PledgeCents team works with each fundraiser to help raise the necessary funds and will purchase the package immediately after the fundraiser ends and also connect the teacher to a member of Tiggly's team to expedite the process. Anyone interested can visit https://www.pledgecents.com/signup/event/tiggly to create their own page today.
"More and more educators are turning to Tiggly's tech-enabled manipulatives to help them support individual needs of their diverse groups of students and to meet rigorous learning outcome standards required from them. While demands on schools are growing, resources available to them are diminishing and that is where PledgeCents comes into play," said Dr. Azi Jamalian, co-founder of Tiggly. "With our new partnership with PledgeCents, any educator, no matter how limited their budget may be, can now bring Tiggly's proven early STEM resources into their classrooms. That is our ultimate goal at Tiggly! To reach all early learners and help them to achieve their learning goals - no matter what their background is or how much budget is available to their school."
