Pearson today announced that it has acquired PowerSchool, Apple’s student information systems (SIS) division, and will develop educational content for teachers and students compatible with the iPod. From the company’s announcement: “Pearson will also develop new services for educators and students, including research-based educational content compatible with iPod, the world’s most popular digital music player. Teachers will have access to podcasts on professional development to help with lesson preparation and provide innovative ways to reach students struggling with specific content. Students will be able to load their iPods with study guides that are aligned with Pearson texts and listen to review notes to prepare for exams.”
