Our Technology is Making a Real Difference.
Henry County Schools,
Henry County Schools (HCS) saw its student body of over 42,000 individuals diversifying in a number of ways and understood the traditional “one-size-fits-all” method of teaching was no longer effective in reaching many types of learners. The District, ahead of their time, was ready to embrace a “Big Vision” change and adopt a new methodology in teaching and learning - one that was designed to focus on each student individually - and to empower students to be critical decision-makers in their own education.
HCS won a three-year Next Generation Learning Challenge grant funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, in support of pursuing personalized learning strategies. SRG Technology was recruited to deploy the BlenderLearn technology platform and to build new tools to support this work. Through this partnership, the Blender Learner Profile was created.
With Learner Profiles, Students, Teachers, Administrators and Parents all gain insight into a student’s thinking, capture a 360° view of students, identify students’ learning styles and tailor instruction that resonates with each one on a personal level.
School District of Palm
In the Summer of 2015, the School District of Palm Beach County (SDPBC) wanted to extend and replace their existing lesson planning resource tool with a comprehensive, easy-to-use Content Management System. The District’s goal was to migrate its entire learning object repository of approximately 50,000 pieces of digital content - courses, units, lesson plans, and resources - to a modern, robust platform capable of providing teachers and administrators with enhanced functionality for a secure, single point of access to instructional resources. A partnership was formed to build a digital “One-Stop Shop” for lesson planning and content.
SRG Technology transitioned SDPBC and its more than 12,000 teachers and education professionals, to the BlenderLearn Content Management System (CMS), and efficiently kicked off the next generation of content management for personalized teaching and learning. SRGT was able to integrate all digital content and learning assets into the BlenderLearn application. In 2021, the Blender CMS hosts and manages all SDPBC textbook adoptions, provides teachers and students with personalized textbook access, and organizes over 200,000 District resources.

South Dakota Department
The State DOE of South Dakota (SDDOE) has been an SRGT customer for 7 years, using a series of custom, one-off applications built with partner OtisEd. In partnership with Otis Educational Systems, these have included a Report Card and a Portal. At the end of 2019, they decided to upgrade to the full BlenderLearn application state-wide. The BlenderLearn portal serves as a jumping off point for access to a number of SDDOE applications, especially reporting applications. The work in SDDOE has involved significant integration with MicroStrategy.
As part of their upgrade, SDDOE asked us to design and build a first ever for them “one stop-shop” for all of their Special Education content (SPED), indicators, resources and SSRS reports. We proposed a Blender Community. SD has 151 districts and there will be 151 special ed directors using the SPED community. The community will consolidate all shared information and personalize District-eyes-only
