Secondary School Teachers Can Quickly Try, Then Buy, Award-winning Product, Aimed at Boosting Reading, Writing and Critical Thinking
The company made the announcement at EdNET 2012, the 24th annual educational networking conference, under way in Baltimore through October 2.
“Our mission is to connect quality content with teachers and their students, which is why we’re so pleased to partner with StudySync, the multiple award-winning platform for secondary school classrooms,”
StudySync is available to teachers in grades six through twelve. An informative product demo/preview enables instructors to quickly gain an understanding of how the product works.
“The Learning.com Marketplace is a valuable resource for teachers, providing StudySync with an excellent opportunity to showcase our dynamic learning application,”
An innovative, web‐delivered academic tool, StudySync was created by leading national educators with the goal of inspiring higher levels of critical thinking and academic collaboration. Aligned to the Common Core State Standards, StudySync targets middle and high school students, enlisting broadcast-quality video, digital media, mobile platforms and social learning to advance students’ reading, writing and critical thinking abilities.
Flexible and easy‐to‐navigate, StudySync places control fully in the hands of the educator, enabling teachers to integrate the product into their current classroom curriculum any way they see fit. Teachers can, for example, customize the experience by using StudySync lessons in sequence as a complete unit or assigning individual components to supplement existing lesson plans; the teacher can track progress and make assessments at any time. StudySync is also intended to be used across disciplines – for language arts classrooms and for science, social studies, history and other subject areas as well.
