We are excited to announce that Paradise Valley USD in Phoenix, Arizona was nominated – and is a finalist – for a major award in the arena of educational technology!

imgresParadise Valley has been a Quaver district for the last four years, and their adoption of our digital resources is at the heart of their nomination for the IMS Global Learning Impact Award. 

These awards and nominations come from IMS Global Learning Consortium – an organization that focuses on the future of education and technology. Since 2007, the IMS Global Learning Impact Awards recognizes educational technology applications that address the most significant challenges facing education.

In Paradise Valley, it was the selection of Quaver Music technology that helped them address the challenges they faced!

We firmly believe that every music teacher and department deserves more recognition than they get. So when one of our own districts is honored with this attention, we want to do everything we can to spread the word!

Keith Preston (Fine Arts Director) and teachers of Paradise Valley shared their Quaver story and how it immediately had a positive impact in their district. From increased student engagement and ease of lesson planning to having the opportunity to spend remaining funds on learning enhancement technology, Paradise Valley is a great demonstration on how Quaver Music’s 21st-century learning approach improves student engagement and teacher performances.
