Monday, December 14, 2015 -- Ashlee Tatum-Eckley

Last week, we released exciting new content, features, and activities for EducationCity, Reading Eggspress, and Study Island. These new features are sure to get students and teachers excited about learning! Read on for the details.

New Content [EducationCity]

Brand new language arts, math, and science content, aligned to state and Common Core standards, has been added to EducationCity! A rich variety of engaging student activities, animated tutorials known as Learn Screens, and printable activity sheets and lesson plans demonstrate our continued commitment to providing robust elementary resources that connect teaching and learning.

In-Product Hints [EducationCity]

New in-product hints have been added to help users navigate through the many exciting areas of EducationCity with ease. Easily turned on and off with one click of a button, helpful purple question marks accompany different areas of the program to offer handy tips for using different features.

New Avatars [EducationCity]

EducationCity avatars have been reimagined in this latest release. Students now have the ability to select one of 18 friendly monsters to represent themselves as they learn new skills and test their knowledge throughout the program.

The Stadium [Reading Eggspress]

The updated Stadium feature, which returned earlier this fall, helps students test their English skills in a risk-free gaming environment. Exciting head-to-head challenges allow learners to compete against their class, school, students from around the world, or in game mode as they skate, sprint, swim, and cycle across the finish line.

Math Practice Activities [Study Island]

The Study Island Math Practice Activities are detailed plans for teachers to use in the classroom to provide coverage of the Common Core Math Practice standards. These brand new activities have been structured to meet DOK level 3 and level 4 complexity ratings.

Gamification [Study Island for Home]

We are very excited to launch brand new engagement features in Study Island for Home. Students will sharpen their ELA, science, and social studies knowledge while simultaneously having fun and earning points and coins that they can spend on built-in games, avatars, badges, and more.
