Our commitment to innovation
April 20, 2020
Our mission to empower educators as they inspire the best student outcomes is the reason we redefined classroom learning over 30 years ago. And it’s what pushes us to innovate new solutions that enable educators to reveal a world of possibilities, guiding students to explore, learn, and grow in a safer digital environment. Because students deserve the best from their educators, and educators deserve the best from us.
What can LanSchool do? LanSchool is a classroom management software that helps teachers guide learning, promote collaboration, and make the most of teaching time. We believe classroom management technology is more than just a tool or a set of features. To us, it’s a platform that sparks students’ curiosity and ignites their potential. Purposeful classroom technology helps teachers show students what they can do — and who they can become.
The evolution of edtech
As education has evolved, LanSchool has worked hard to ensure our software rises to the occasion every step of the way. When we first released LanSchool in the 1980s, the only computers on school campuses lived in the lab or library, and education technology companies were few and far between. This was the norm for decades, until a few years ago, when educators began to challenge the conventional classroom structure of teachers lecturing at the front of a class.
“We have found — and research suggests — that the traditional method of teachers lecturing at the front of a class is not enough to generate the desired outcomes. So, as a natural evolution, technology was tossed into the equation, and 1:1 computing became a huge topic. But even 1:1 doesn’t drastically improve student outcomes on its own, which is where LanSchool has come into play.” -Coby Gurr, LanSchool General Manager
As the use of edtech has grown and shifted, so have we. Over the years, we’ve continued to evolve our features to address the needs of the connected classroom, including the latest additions of features like Enterprise Data Collection and integrations with new solutions like Lenovo’s VR Classroom 2.
Now forced school closures due to COVID-19 have challenged conventions once again, and we share a realization with our community that education will never be the same. Distance learning will be part of our new norm and will drive even more innovation. And we are ready to help.
A commitment to innovation and a fresh new logo
Over the last few months, our team has worked hard to capture the LanSchool legacy, our focus on innovation, and our vision for future evolution into an updated logo and website. We’re excited to share this brand transformation with you.
All LanSchool products will transition to this new logo in the coming weeks and months. You’ll see the new logo in our promotional materials, email communications, and on our website, immediately. If you follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn, you may have already seen the new logo. Comment @lanschool and let us know what you think. As soon as it is possible for us to gather safely at industry events, we’ll also have some new LanSchool swag to share.
This new brand mark is more than a simple icon change. Our logo reflects the vitality, dedication, and promise of what we can achieve when we work together. Thank you for being part of the LanSchool story and family. Our mission has not wavered, and our confidence in the educators we serve has never been stronger.
