285: EdTech – StudySync Adds New Podcast Feature And Unit Creator Tool for Teachers
Today’s students are deeply immersed in social learning. They are continually accessing and sharing information, communicating on multiple platforms, and consuming and creating diverse forms of media. In short, they are becoming digital citizens.
An EdTech company is engaging with these digitally-connected students with media-rich learning experiences, real-world topics, and a direct read-write connection while giving teachers flexible digital tools and engaging print resources supporting teaching, differentiation, and standards-based assessment.
StudySync is the award-winning curriculum product of BookheadEd Learning LLC, a privately held California-based company developing academic content with forward-thinking designs and advanced technology solutions for education. Adopted by the State of California, StudySync’s blended approach of traditional learning and graphic media technology builds from an extensive library of fiction and informational texts and social media context to provide a complete and dynamic curriculum solution meeting state and national standards.
The platform also recently introduced a new podcast feature that showcases student perspectives on 21st century learning.
StudySync podcasts offer a new way for students to use digital media content in the classroom while advancing listening and critical thinking skills.
Our new ‘School of Thought’ podcast series brings the voice and opinions of students directly into the classroom—their own ideas on the educational environment that directly impacts them.
