Exploros is proud to be chosen as a 2021 Social Studies Solution finalist.

"We specialize in true student engagement,"
The Exploros teacher-guided social approach works.
Just before the pandemic, in one of the largest Social Studies academic impact case studies in the United States, 94% of campuses saw their state testing scores increase and the average gain was an astounding 29%. Perhaps even more impressive was that gains spanned student demographics — At Risk, Economically Disadvantaged, Limited English Language — all student scores jumped by double-digits.
During the pandemic, the Exploros approach has been providing instructional continuity when learning loss, especially amongst lower-income students, is challenging schools across the country. "Exploros helps teachers stage powerful social learning experiences that address state standards and get students involved. Regardless of where the learning is taking place, these are the critical elements of success," Heilman says.
Exploros is a Google Cloud Partner, an Amazon EdStart Partner, and is collaborating with Lenovo to advance device-enabled instruction in North and South America. Exploros offers programs in Social Studies, ELA, Digital Citizenship, and publishing partner programs.
