Our Knowledge is Your Power
Everyday, students are barraged by visual images, social media, music and sound. StudySync engages the media-saturated lives of students, incorporating and embracing today’s technology to build knowledge and improve literacy skills across the curriculum.
StudySync was developed from a rich research base drawn from the most current studies in pedagogy, learning, technology, and student engagement. Unlike long-standing programs developed decades ago, StudySync was built with today’s learners in mind. Providing the highest level of academics, great ideas conveyed by an author’s own words, award-winning video, a meaningful exchange of ideas, and collaboration at its best, StudySync brings learning to dynamic life.

“Advanced reading ability is the key to the full range of ways of knowing. It can no longer be considered a luxury…. At the core of StudySync is an Internet technology-based learning system that accommodates the current generation’s need for instruction. It is customized, collaborative, and lives up to the need for information integrity in a highly digitized and connected world. Its solutions leverage students’ experience and intelligence to advance them on a pathway to excellence through middle and high school and into college.”

Dr. Lawrence Baines, University of Oklahoma
“The National Assessment of Education Progress, which has administered criterion-referenced tests in literacy since 1971, reports that only one to two percent (1 – 2%) of American adolescents are able to read and write at the highest ‘advanced’ level every year. Instruction-as-usual seems unlikely to engender the kind of radical transformation that is needed.
New instructional approaches that focus on higher levels of student engagement, personalized instruction, and real-life, real-time experiences are essential if higher academic goals are to be realized. StudySync is just the kind of robust and relevant to the real world tool that will help students make the transition to success in college and careers.”
