BrainWare Learning Company Teams with LiteracyPlanet
BrainWare Learning Company is teaming with LiteracyPlanet for the U.S. launch of the award-winning, online English Language Arts program.
In November, LiteracyPlanet announced the introduction of the U.S. version of its program that already has broad usage and success across Australia, and the U.K. in addition to Middle-Eastern and Asian countries.
“LiteracyPlanet meets our exacting criteria for the programs we offer,” said Roger Stark, CEO of BrainWare Learning Company. “It utilizes the best practices of digital game-based learning to personalize each student’s experience, and its impact on student outcomes has been demonstrated in research. We believe that LiteracyPlanet is to language arts what BrainWare SAFARI is to cognitive development. BrainWare SAFARI helps create a strong foundation for learning and LiteracyPlanet can help take literacy to a new level of personalization and engagement.”
Not only has LiteracyPlanet been shown to accelerate students’ acquisition of literacy skills, it integrates all aspects of literacy, from phonics, listening and reading to spelling, grammar and writing, into a single powerful platform from K-10th grade.
According to Betsy Hill, president of BrainWare Learning Company, the program enables teachers to assign activities based on the needs of individual students or groups of students, and also enables student-directed learning. All of the learning activities in LiteracyPlanet are aligned with state standards and teachers can search for activities that meet any particular standard. “These features, together with rich and intuitive reporting, make this program easy for teachers to use and track student progress. And students love it!”
