StudySync: A Solution for the Tech-Challenged Classroom

Posted by Jenny Brown on July 18, 2013 |

This spring StudySync had the opportunity to interview some of the amazing teachers who use our critical reading and writing program, to see what works for their students and how StudySync is helping them overcome the hurdles of today's classroom and transition to the Common Core. We are excited to share the first of these Case Studies with you, in which we spoke with Colleen Carbone, a Language Arts teacher at Jim C. Bailey Middle School in Pensacola, Florida.

Colleen Carbone uses StudySync to help her students develop the critical writing skills necessary for the upcoming Common Core assessments and to differentiate instruction within her classroom to meet and engage all learning levels.  And she does it all within a school system that does not have 1:1 technology access. Read on to hear why Carbone finds StudySync to be "better than a textbook" and the best tech solution for her.
