Georgia’s State Board of Education recently published its list of ELA learning resources for 2013. Included on the list is Imagine Learning, an innovative language and literacy software program designed to bring student reading up to grade level.
Imagine Learning is an engaging language and literacy software program that promotes student engagement while working through an adaptive curriculum. Built around solid pedagogy and cutting-edge animation, audio, and video, the program offers interactive, personalized experiences for English language learners, students with disabilities, struggling readers, and early childhood education students.
Schools in Georgia are already seeing great progress. “When we opened the school, we knew we had some very significant challenges,” said Dara Wilson, principal of Lake Forest Elementary school in Fulton County. “The thing that was most glaring to us was that only 40% of our 4th and 5th graders were passing the State CRCT. But after using Imagine Learning for three years, that number has more than doubled. You could say that we fully understand the value of Imagine Learning around here.”
Imagine Learning delivers language and literacy instruction in a way that engages children and makes learning meaningful and fun. According to Chief Executive Officer Joe Swenson, “our mission is to produce the most effective language and literacy solution that will help as many students as possible. This clear vision has allowed us to successfully implement district- and state-wide solutions in many parts of the country.”
In addition to supporting foundational reading skills development, Imagine Learning is designed to be intuitive and easy to use. The program focuses on core learning areas, with activities built specifically to address state standards and Common Core standards. This provides teachers with a comprehensive collection of activities to use in one-on-one instruction, whole-class, and small-group settings. By making it simple for teachers to integrate the best technology with established learning principles—blended learning—Imagine Learning can help maximize the classroom experience for everyone.
