Back in December, we announced our acquisition of SchoolSpire, a K–12 software platform that integrates with existing district systems, allowing configurable and modular solutions. Then, in May, we officially launched our new Instructional Management Platform.
The Instructional Management Platform is a web-based solution, equipping districts with a streamlined way to incorporate the 9 Traits of Critical Thinking into curriculum and instruction. This solution provides digital access to Mentoring Minds’ ThinkUp! resources across subject areas, assessment authoring and management through Itematica, and real-time, customizable reporting. Together, these embedded resources help educators gauge student progress and provide differentiated instruction to meet the learning needs of all students.
What Does This Mean for Our Customers?
If you were previously accessing ThinkUp! or Itematica from our k12.mentoringminds.com site, your access to this platform expired on June 30th, 2020.
If your campus purchased Itematica and your subscription expiration date is after June 30th, your access will continue on the new platform. All impacted customers should have received communication in May about this migration. If you have questions or did not receive our emails, please contact us as soon as possible.
All purchases of ThinkUp! for the 2019-2020 school year had online access until June 30th. After this date, access to ThinkUp! in the online platform will need to be purchased for the 2020–21 school year. ThinkUp! is a consumable resource and must be purchased every school year to receive continuous access.
