As teachers, we know that it is critical to help students develop the necessary skills for future success in college and careers. For students learning the English language, this can be an especially challenging task, so it’s important to have tools like StudySync with built-in vocabulary and fluency supports.

Help Students Make Engaging Connections Across the Curriculum

Posted by Diane Cadogan on November 08, 2013 |

 

One of the greatest challenges of the Common Core is finding a wide range of challenging, authentic texts that engage and excite students. StudySync can help students make engaging connections with our newly introduced Units. Units are a set of comprehensive lessons which offer a full complement of supplemental texts and comparative writing assignments that support the reading of a core text from classic and contemporary literature.  All StudySync Units include the engaging media, video, and writing platform so well-known to StudySync users, and allow for an even richer learning experience as students read and analyze the cross-curricular texts within a Unit.

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.

I’ve Seen the Future of EdTech, and it’s in my Backyard

Posted by Jay King on March 26, 2012 |

111On March 10th, StudySync participated in The New England 1:1 Summit, a conference right in my backyard, at Burlington High School, in Burlington, MA. Walk through the doors and Burlington looks like your typical suburban public high school, with familiar cement facade, huge double-entry doors, wide hallways, and Formica floors. But this is no typical high school. Burlington High is a 1:1 computing school, a term that means every student has or is issued some technical device, such as a netbook, a laptop, or, as in Burlington's case, an iPad.
