netTrekker has announced the release of igotta, a new product that provides a virtual workspace for students to find, analyze, organize, and use information to complete a wide-range of school assignments while developing the skills they need to be college- and career-ready. With the release of igotta, netTrekker provides a complete portfolio of integrated products and services that bring digital resources and student productivity tools into the classroom in a safe, relevant and engaging way, making it faster and easier for schools to offer personalized learning experiences for students, the announcement states. 

igotta is designed to help students develop 21st century skills such as information literacy and critical thinking, while completing reports, writing assignments, presentations, studying and other project work. Students learn how to take notes, cite sources properly, conduct research, organize their thoughts, paraphrase information in their own words, incorporate multimedia, and more. igotta supports project-based instructional goals and methods, providing students with the framework and guidance to complete independent projects.

When combined with the company's complementary product, netTrekker, igotta enables students to safely access the content they need and complete their school assignments and projects through one integrated solution, according to the announcement. Students improve their productivity by spending less time searching for relevant resources and keeping track of all the pieces of their assignments. netTrekker offers more than 300,000 safe, educator-reviewed digital resources from around the web and from partner offerings that are aligned to standards and span the entire K-12 curriculum.

igotta was developed by netTrekker in partnership with Zeus Learning. For more information, visit www.netTrekker.com/igotta.
