Penda Learning is designed around the technology needs of districts and schools. From single sign-on, automated rostering and full integrations with learning management systems to strict compliance with FERPA, you can count on Penda to work seamlessly within your infrastructure and support effective in-person and remote digital learning.
Using Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI) 1.3 Advantage, the gold standard for
systems integration, Penda’s gamified science activities can be right at teachers’
and students’ fingertips in your learning management system (LMS).
This seamless integration makes it easier for students to build their science skills within a learning environment they’re already familiar with and use every day. Integration makes using Penda more efficient for teachers, too. They can assign Penda activities, track student progress, and even create intervention groups all without ever having to leave the LMS. As students complete assignments, their scores are automatically added to the LMS gradebook, saving teachers time and reducing errors caused by manual data entry.
LTI Advantage makes Penda a unified part of your learning ecosystem, simplifying access and giving valuable time back to teaching and learning.
In addition to single sign-on using LTI 1.3 Advantage, Penda is certified by both
ClassLink and Clever for SSO and can also integrate using OAuth.
Auto data rostering can be done securely with ClassLink’s OneRoster or with IMS Global OneRoster in both csv and REST formats.
Penda uses Amazon Web Services (AWS), the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform. This ensures ultimate stability and security.
DCPS' transition to distance learning has been an all-hands-on-deck process. Our four-year partnership with Penda Science has proven to be paramount in facilitating the 'switch' from classroom use of Penda to distance learning use. Penda Science has proven to be invaluable in helping our teachers maintain instruction and helping our students learn in a fun and engaging way.

Our school was blown away with Penda and all of the great activities, resources, and friendly competition it offers. The lesson and activities are aligned to our counties standards and follow our timeline, this will really help reinforce the standards being taught. Our teacher’s favorite part of the program was the inclusion of the levels of DOK. Students will have to demonstrate knowledge for the standards on all levels, what a great accountability piece! Everything a teacher would want in a program, is available through Penda.

For our high population of ESOL and below grade-level readers, Penda democratized access to science standards via scaffolding instruction and multi-representation of data and concepts.
