STUDYSYNC SELECTED AS AN OUTSTANDING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY PRODUCT IN TECH & LEARNING’S AWARD OF EXCELLENCE PROGRAM

10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM

SONOMA, Calif.  (Oct. 31, 2013) – StudySync (www.studysync.com), the innovative Common Core literacy curriculum from BookheadEd Learning, has been chosen as a winner in the 31st annual Tech & Learning magazine’s Awards of Excellence program.  This marks the third time in just five months that the cross-curricular literacy solution has been honored.  This time, the product was chosen for adding significant enhancements to the already proven instructional resource.  Earlier this year the Association of Educational Publishers (AEP) selected StudySync for its prestigious Innovation Award, which recognizes forward-thinking products pioneering change in the education landscape.  StudySync was also chosen as the ‘Trendsetter’ winner in the EdTech Digest 2013 awards program.

 

This year’s Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence program honored new and upgraded software, hardware, network and web products.  A panel of more than 30 educators tested more than 150 entries, and chose the winners.

 

“This is so gratifying to have this panel of distinguished judges recognize the insight, hard work and passion that our organization has put into building and enhancing this incredible literacy solution,” said Robert Romano, CEO, StudySync. "The award is especially important for us because we know that educators are struggling every day to find ways to move the academic needle for students’ language arts skills.”

 

With 550+ core digital texts and excerpts, dynamic video and media built to inspire and advance reading, writing, listening and critical thinking skills for students in grades 4-12, StudySync is an all-in-one platform designed from the Common Core Standards.  The web-based platform offers literacy instruction – searchable by genre, theme, grade and Lexile® level – and assessment on all devices anytime, anywhere, giving teachers extraordinary and relevant instructional resources and lesson plans to easily differentiate literacy instruction. The products recent upgrades include:

 

– A greater selection of middle school-level titles in the platform’s online library

– A Lexile® measure for every text in the library

– An in-program annotation tool to aid reading comprehension and text analysis

– A distinction in Blast writing prompt options for middle and high school discussions, plus new topic themes

– A mobile device application for short form writing practice

– A customization option for rubrics, and

– A more informative home page

 

Noted for its flexible and easy‐to‐navigate format, StudySync places control fully in the hands of the educators, enabling teachers to easily integrate the product into their current classroom curriculum for students.  For example, the language arts teachers are able to customize the learning experience for students by using StudySync lessons in sequence as a complete unit or assigning individual components to support differentiated instruction and supplement existing lesson plans.  Teachers can also track progress and make assessments at any time. Aligned to state standards and designed from Common Core State Standards, StudySync can be used across disciplines for language arts classrooms as well as science, mathematics, social studies, history, and more.

 

Romano concluded, “This award further validates our vision of making products that help solve real problems for educators today. We are committed to working with our customers to further improve our offering and make their lives easier.”
