Scholastic's Educational Technology Programs Go Mobile On The IPad®, With READ 180 Leading The Way

NEW YORK, June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Meeting the needs of school districts shifting toward the use of tablet devices in classrooms, Scholastic (NASDAQ: SCHL) is making much of its groundbreaking and research-based instructional technology iPad-ready for back to school, the company announced today at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference. Personalized learning technology and ebooks for students, data-rich dashboards for teachers and powerful, formative assessment tools from Scholastic technology programs will be available on iPad for the 2013-14 school year: READ 180 ® , Common Core Code X , Scholastic Reading Inventory and Scholastic Reading Counts! ® .

"In our estimation, the conversion of all of the robust personalized learning technology and the data reporting functionality in READ 180 makes it the most ambitious educational program available on the iPad," said Margery Mayer, President of Scholastic Education.

The powerful, new iPad-ready technology in READ 180 makes it lighter, smarter and more flexible for today's teachers and students by:

1)      Allowing for extended student access outside of the classroom and beyond the school day.

2)      Providing an even more personalized learning experience on personal devices and ensuring every student progresses on his or her own path.

3)      Giving teachers and administrators unparalleled access to data, delivered through dashboards as they walk the room.

4)      Increasing student engagement through the iPad's intuitive touch screen technology.

5)      Reducing startup time and making for an easier implementation across a school or district, so precious instructional time is not wasted.

6)      Lowering the total cost of program ownership by providing access through less expensive devices.

"Educators for years have talked with excitement about the possibilities for using tablet devices in education, to really change the game.  We think this iPad-ready technology, starting with the full READ 180 student experience, shows what students and teachers are capable of when they have the right support," Mayer said. "It is further evidence of Scholastic's ability to combine innovation with research to create programs that accelerate learning and ensure all students are meeting college and career-ready expectations."
