Common Core Based Literacy App Added To Edmodo Store
FRESNO, Calif., Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --
SNAP Learning, a recognized publisher of K-6 reading curriculum, and Emantras, an award-winning education technology company, have come together to launch SNAPPINESS, a new digital reading app which will be available in the Edmodo Store. SNAPPINESS is the only platform that offers teachers and students a one-stop, easy-to-use Common Core Literacy solution.
"The time required to learn the Common Core, let alone implement and measure it, can seem overwhelming," says Mark Sullivan, CEO of SNAP Learning, former teacher and author of several of its leveled reading books. "Additionally if educators need to search for engaging content and motivating activities, and then map their assessments to standards, it can be a daunting task."
The SNAPPINESS app provides teachers and students with access to a digital library of engaging complex text, a host of standards-based activities, metrics for student achievement, and built-in gamification rewards.
By launching the new app on free and secure K-12 social learning platform Edmodo, SNAP Learning believes that SNAPPINESS will reach elementary teachers who are looking for this kind of solution which will save them valuable time and effort in searching for material.
Edmodo is the largest, fastest growing social platform for education with more than 27 million users worldwide. On Edmodo, teachers are at the center of a powerful network that connects them to students, administrators, and parents. This network surfaces the world's best resources and tools, providing the building blocks of a high quality education. In Edmodo's secure environment, teachers and students can collaborate, share content, and use educational apps to augment in-classroom learning. These powerful capabilities enable teachers to personalize learning for every student.
Emantras CEO Sesh Kumar says, "SNAPPINESS brings together the best of content and technology to address various key issues such as reading material availability on multiple devices, and skills measurement."
He added, "Educators now have a simple, integrated solution to offer their students digital reading and writing, which is mapped to the Common Core, is fun for young readers and monitors their performance for continual improvement."
