Indiana-Based XR Technologies and The Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Research and Reform in Education (CRRE) have announced a strategic partnership aimed at researching strategies for improving math curricula, developing and licensing alternative sources of education talent, and increasing self-directed, engaged learning in K-12 education. The partnership will commence in June 2022.

“The XR Mathematics platform’s purpose is to enable school leaders to overcome math teacher vacancies by developing and credentialing the talent in their local community,” said Kevin Berkopes, Ph.D., co-founder, and CEO of XR Technologies.  “Having Johns Hopkins, one of the premier research universities in the world, serve as a third-party evaluator of our offerings will significantly aid our ability to help school leaders, teachers, and students with math instruction.”

Indy Politics spoke to Berkopes about the program.
