By CIOReview | Tuesday, June 10, 2014

NEW YORK, NY: StudySync and McGraw-Hill Education recently announced an exclusive marketing and distribution partnership combining StudySync’s dynamic digital content and platform for English Language Arts with McGraw-Hill Education’s acclaimed instructional resources and sales expertise. As part of the agreement, McGraw-Hill Education will distribute the StudySync literacy program for Grades 6-12, and the two companies will collaborate to develop new digital products and services for the U.S. educational market.

StudySync– is an anywhere, anytime, any device experience – offers literacy instruction, interdisciplinary collaboration, peer-to-peer review and assessment that is searchable by genre, theme, grade and Lexile level.

“With information available at the swipe of a finger, education in the 21st century must engage students to inspire academic excellence and foster creativity,” says Robert Romano, CEO of StudySync. “Our partnership with McGraw-Hill Education serves to address those essential changes in education by bringing together substance and form to produce the best teaching resources possible to help students achieve success in college and career.”

“Today’s educators and students are counting on us to transform their learning experiences through digital technology, and our partnership with StudySync will help us achieve that in the area of English Language Arts,” said Peter Cohen, President of McGraw-Hill School Education Group.

The StudySync solution also includes weekly “Blasts” and offers a proprietary online peer-to-peer review process. Blasts are short answer writing assignments around significant current events that serve as the basis for students’ engaging in meaningful discussions with peers across the globe. In addition to authentic text-based lessons, Blasts, and peer review, StudySync includes a library of more than 120 broadcast-quality SyncTV episodes that model study group collaboration and analysis of a wide selection of fiction and nonfiction works.
