  • (1888PressRelease) November 23, 2011 - SONOMA, Calif - StudySync, the web-based collaborative curriculum from BookheadEd Learning, LLC, has been named to District Administration Magazine's Readers' Choice Top 100 Products of 2011, the company announced today. Aimed at middle school and high school students, StudySync enlists broadcast-quality video, digital media, mobile platforms and social learning to advance reading, writing and critical thinking.

    The prestigious acknowledgement is given annually to K12 education products that have supported education innovation. The winners were selected by the editors of District Administration from hundreds of nominations submitted by readers, including school superintendents and district-level directors in districts across the United States. The winning products were determined by the quantity of nominations received per product, as well as an evaluation of product quality based upon readers' nominations and explanations.

    The District Administration Readers' Choice Top 100 Products awards program provides senior district leaders with the unique opportunity to learn what products their colleagues around the country are using and how these products contribute to the success of their districts. There were a record number of nominations this year.

    "The nominations offer a view into the inner workings of how districts use products to help solve particular issues," said Judy Faust Hartnett, District Administration's editor in chief. "The recommendations we receive include extensive descriptions from school administrators of how these products are used in their districts and the difference they have made, making it very challenging to choose only 100 products. We hope these products and their accompanying testimonials will provide a valuable resource for our readers."

    "Inclusion in District Administration Magazine's 'Top 100 Products of the Year' is a great acknowledgement," said Robert Romano, StudySync CEO. "Striving to produce the most dynamic ed-tech experience for educators and students, we are gratified by the continuing and overwhelming response to StudySync. Our blended approach to reading comprehension, critical thinking, and the collaborative evolution of knowledge reflects the innovation critical to the future of education."

    StudySync embraces social learning, mobile technology, digital media, and an extensive library of classic and modern texts, to connect students to the great ideas of mankind while encouraging academic discourse and peer-to-peer collaboration.

    Flexible and easy‐to‐navigate, StudySync places control fully in the hands of the educator, enabling teachers to integrate the product into their current classroom curriculum any way they see fit. Teachers can, for example, customize the experience by using StudySync lessons in sequence as a complete unit or assigning individual components to supplement existing lesson plans; the teacher can track progress and make assessments at any time. StudySync is also intended to be used across disciplines - for language arts classrooms and for science, social studies, history and other subject areas as well.
