As the collaborative partner with SirsiDynix for the development of SchoolRooms, INFOhio is truly seeing an idea come to life. Over 140 Ohio teachers and librarians helped develop 71 virtual rooms of content to meet National Standards for the K-12 curriculum. INFOhio will begin a state-wide deployment of SchoolRooms beginning October 2006 for two districts, Shaker Heights and Kalida. For more information on the INFOhio project and planned roll-out of SchoolRooms to 1.8 million students state-wide visit,

Beacon Charter Schools (City of Philadelphia)
Beginning in November 2006, thousands of Philadelphia-area K-12 students participating in after-hours programs in America's fifth largest city will be using the City of Philadelphia SchoolRooms™. PSS programs, consisting of Afterschool, Beacon Programs and 21st Century Community Learning Centers, contribute to improved school attendance and performance, and provide safe places for children, youth, families, and community residents, of all ages, to spend time interacting and to focus on learning. The addition of SchoolRooms™ to these programs also supports a violence prevention and reduction plan being conducted by the City of Philadelphia.
