centralized software approach, which is designed to facilitate

"JP-IK has established itself as the largest Intel OEM with
significant distribution in Latin America. When the World Bank funds
initiatives in places like Portugal, Peru, Venezuela, Argentina, the
Middle East, etc., devices from JP-IK are almost always a key
component," said Jim Bowler, CEO of Adaptive Curriculum. "With their
global reach and leadership position in ICT-based education, we
couldn't ask for a better partner for helping to develop the world's
future scientists and mathematicians."
