From smartphones that let you have face-to-face conversations with friends halfway around the world to intelligent homes that automatically set your alarm and turn off your lights, it’s no secret that our kids our growing up in a fast-paced world that’s fueled by technology.

At Intel Education, our mission is to support the rapid technology adoption in the classroom. We are working to create an ecosystem of hardware, software and digital content specifically designed to help students learn and to offer educators the tools to effectively integrate technology into the classroom. This work is based on over a decade of experience working with teachers and students. We’ve helped prepare more than 10 million teachers around the world to bring technology into their classrooms.

Today, I’m excited to announce the newest resource in the Intel Education offering. Intel has acquired Kno, a leading education-software company whose guiding mission is to change the way students learn. Much like Intel, Kno believes engagement is key to student success.

The acquisition of Kno boosts Intel’s global digital content library to more than 225,000 higher education and K-12 titles through existing partnerships with 75 educational publishers. Even more, the Kno platform provides administrators and teachers with the tools they need to easily assign, manage and monitor their digital learning content and assessments.

We’re looking forward to combining our expertise with Kno’s rich content so that together, we can help teachers create classroom environments and personalized learning experiences that lead to student success. Check out the Intel Education newsroom for ongoing updates from Intel.
