LOS ANGELES, CA (June 19, 2000) – FUTUREKIDS, Inc., a world leader helping schools use technology to transform education, today announced a newly formed partnership with QuickPAD Technology Corporation, provider of the QuickPAD word processing unit. Together, each company’s efforts will strengthen and support students’ enthusiasm for technology and writing in the K-12 classroom.

QuickPAD is a practical, portable supplement to FUTUREKIDS programs and services, which address areas of technology such as word processing within grade-specific, content-rich academic lessons. Lightweight, yet durable, QuickPAD works like an electronic notepad, allowing the user to explore such features as Typing Tutor, a 70,000-word spell checker, and easy file transfer to any writing application on a PC or MAC. QuickPAD’s features allow FUTUREKIDS students to work on writing lessons and practice keyboarding skills while easing the demand on computer labs and reducing the need for schools to purchase more expensive computers.

“We are excited about our new partnership with Futurekids and the possibilities that exist between our two companies within the education market,” said Michael Spencer, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, QuickPAD Technology Corporation. “Schools know Futurekids as the best method of improving their technology curriculum. With their industry experience and deep- rooted relationships they have established within the education markets around the world, it makes perfect sense for QuickPAD Technology Corporation to partner with them,” Spencer adds.

Karen Fasimpaur, President and Chief Operating Officer of Futurekids Inc., believes one of the best ways to supplement a technology learning program is to provide a tool for learning that is regularly accessible, simple, and durable. “QuickPAD allows students to embrace technology on a regular basis, and when they have the opportunity to do that, their excitement toward writing can only increase.” Fasimpaur adds, “QuickPAD is a valued partner to our school technology solution programs”.
