Ignite Learning, Inc is a renowned hardware and software company. They offer curricula for middle schools in various subjects like Science, mathematics and social studies. The design of instruction is based on differential instruction, constructivism and even on multiple intelligences by Howard Gardner that appeals to innumerable learning styles. In 1999, Ken Leonard and Neil Bush co-founded the company. The winter issue of The Journal of Research on Technology and Education included a write-up depicting a study on effectiveness of Ignite!'s Early American History, in 2008-2009. The results showed significant improvement. However, Salon Magazine reported on April 2002 that although the product was not able to create its presence in the field of education industry, yet it got favorable reviews.
