AUSTIN, Texas February 10, 2010 School Town ( introduced a powerful new K-12 student-centric collaborative learning platform at the Texas Computer Education Association conference in Austin this week. Teachers use School Town to create and manage dynamic, media-rich learning communities with any of their digital resources including multimedia, files, URL links and third-party curricula. Students use School Town to manage their homework, set goals and interact with their peers in a secure and private learning community.

“School Town lets me teach twice as much,” said Tom Samorian, middle school teacher at Shepard Middle School in Deerfield, Ill. who has used School Town for the past two years. “[School Town] extends the learning day and allows for students to advance topics from home. The next day we hit the ground running.”
