Uniquely Curated - Researched Based Content - Proven Relevance in the Classroom.

The edIQ model is based on partnering with leading minds in learning and education and collaborating to bring their ideas to students and classrooms that can benefit from them.

As a demonstration of this concept, edIQ has partnered with Learning Incite Inc., under the leadership of Dr. Christine Massey, Director of Research and Education at the Institute for Research in Cognitive Science at the University of Pennsylvania, and Phil Kellman, Professor of Cognitive Psychology, UCLA.

The software provided by Drs. Massey and Dr. Kellman is focused initially on math and science enhancement developed through ongoing research funded by the National Science Foundation and the US Department of Education.

Through the initial software, children will be offered four software modules, known as Perceptual Learning Modules (PLMs), that focus on central concepts related to fractions and measurement. The PLMs reinforce concepts that are known to be difficult for many students and which have been identified as topics that are critical for building the foundation for algebra. These modules were developed in collaboration between the University of Pennsylvania and UCLA, with funding from the National Science Foundation and The U.S. Department of Education.

Through testing within large urban public middle schools, using a combined pre/post comparison group design, results of use of the PLM’s showed very strong learning gains and significant academic improvement The studies also demonstrated remarkable durability of learning gains for the intervention groups were fully maintained.

Data Management

Open Source Information System - Intuitive Interface - Comprehensive Assessments

edIQ also partners with JARVUS INNOVATIONS, a local Philadelphia software development company. Jarvus has developed the open-source online school management system, called SLATE, which will be initially utilized by edIQ to allow teachers, students, administrators and to monitor student’s academic progress.

Slate is an open-source online foundation for schools, created to put the latest web technology to work for all schools at minimal to no cost. At its core, Slate provides a public-facing portal, a staff-only management application, and toolkit of secure APIs and push/pull integration modules for keeping all of a school’s systems up to date without a resident system administrator.

Using Slate, a school can organize its core information; make that information accessible to the people in the community who need it; and seamlessly add free or premium services such as Google Apps for Education to their information ecosystem. Every aspect of Slate has been designed to facilitate customization, development, and interoperability.

SLATE is being currently used at the Science Leadership Academy, located in Philadelphia, as the primary interface between administration, teachers, and students.

Two primary partners have been the Eisenhower Fellowship program and the Good Company Ventures. Both of these two organizations are committed to forwarding social enterprises and creating social impact, are both primary and key partners of edIQ.

The Eisenhower Foundation provided the first round of seed capital in the amount of $25,000 through their Consequential Outcomes Grant. Both edIQ , CEO, Brigitte Daniel, and Dr. Christine Massey, Partner of Learning Incite, are Eisenhower Fellows and were partnered together through the organization.

Just recently, edIQ was a also participant in the Good Company Ventures summer Incubator program to assist with the creation of the overall edIQ business model and help to construct a framework to deploy and scale the product within Philadelphia and other similarly situated surrounding cities in need of addressing educational challenges.

Wilco Story

In our many years of service within Philadelphia, Wilco Electronic Systems, Inc. has gained repute and acknowledgement for remaining a family owned, African-American, independent private cable operator. Since 1977, Wilco has proudly provided custom cable, telecommunication services, and security systems to educational, government, and commercial facilities.

Founded by Will Daniel, Wilco was built on three tenets, 1) Creating Community, 2) Building Equity by providing access to mainstream technologies for underserved communities, and 3) Delivering those technologies in a way the community can afford. Thus, throughout the years, Wilco’s primary legacy has been the offering of affordable technologies to low-income communities throughout the Greater Philadelphia and Delaware Valley area for 34 years.

In 2006, Brigitte Daniel, daughter of Founder Will Daniel, and Executive Vice President of Wilco Electronic Systems, Inc.’s, came on board to lead Wilco into a new era of technology and transform the unique family-owned cable company into a leader within the global digital marketplace.

Over the last few years under the leadership of Ms. Daniel, Wilco has created several public/private partnerships that provide innovative solutions to address the digital divide within underserved communities thus positioning Wilco as a digital broadband leader, specifically working on behalf of disadvantaged communities within Philadelphia and throughout the United States.

In 2010, Wilco was a lead partner in creating the federally funded Freedom Rings Partnership. This $20.8 Million initiative provided internet access and technology training offerings to over 300,000 underserved individuals in Philadelphia. In conjunction with Drexel University and the Community College of Philadelphia, Freedom Rings funded the free distribution of 5,000 netbooks and has provided digital literacy training, specifically for Philadelphia Housing Authority residents.

In 2012, Wilco also created a partnership with Temple University to develop digital solutions to address the complex challenges individuals living in Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA) residential communities, as part of the university’s Urban Apps & Maps project.

Through this partnership, Wilco worked with Temple to facilitate engagement with PHA residents and neighboring underserved communities by assisting with the creation of mobile applications aimed at providing tangible solutions to the problems of economic development around Temple campuses, job creation, and access to education and health services offered to PHA residents. The mobile apps were created to be downloadable to either PHA resident homes or PHA resident smart phones.

Thus, this well established history of providing affordable technology services to low-income and minority communities, has led the company to now embark in a new but familiar direction, the launch of edIQ.

As a new company venture, we envision edIQ to continue the longstanding and successful Wilco legacy by deploying affordable products and services that continue to fulfill our commitment to our unique marketplace. These new technology services will deliver improved education, health and wellness, and enhanced digital connectivity through the creation of community supported partnerships.
