FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Cerebellum Corporation Receives Three 2011 Parents’ Choice “Recommended” Awards
Teaching Systems: Biology, Teaching Systems: Algebra and Teaching Systems: AP Biology honored for quality educational video programming
San Francisco, CA – May 16, 2010 – Cerebellum Corporation, the producer and distributor of the award-winning Standard Deviants videos, has received three 2011 Parents’ Choice “Recommended” Awards for Teaching Systems: Biology, Teaching Systems: Algebra and Teaching Systems: AP Biology. Two of the winning series, Biology and Algebra, were also recently awarded a 2011 Telly Award for Excellence in Instructional DVD programming.
Released in 2010 and based on high school state standards, the Biology and Algebra series consist of seven modules that use a multicultural cast of young actors, mnemonic devices and lively on-screen graphics to teach difficult concepts. The AP Biology series provides a quick and comprehensive video test prep resource designed to help calm the nerves of any student taking the Advanced Placement biology exam.
“In today’s rapidly digitized environment, our mission is to provide classroom resources that save teachers time while educating and entertaining students,” said James Rena, president of Cerebellum Corporation. “The awards and reviews that these titles have garnered is a true accomplishment for our dedicated production team.”
The Parents’ Choice Award is one of the most prominent awards focusing on educational products for the family. Since 1978, the association has been a trusted and independent source for families, educators, librarians and journalists seeking the highest quality children’s media and toys. As the nation’s oldest nonprofit guide to superior children’s media, it is a true distinction to win a Parents’ Choice Award. On average, less than 15% of the products submitted to the awards program receive any level of recommendation.
Cerebellum’s award-winning Teaching Systems product line combines entertaining video with digital workbooks to reinforce difficult topics in core curriculum subjects. Each program is based on state standards and provides a unique approach to classroom learning. Along with a video tutorial, each program includes lesson plans, quizzes, handouts and classroom activities. Currently there are 22 subjects available in the Teaching Systems library.
“Teaching Systems offers a dynamic approach to fascinating subject matter and it can be a real time-saver when it comes to planning curriculum. Also note that while the set is designed for a classroom, it certainly is appropriate for home-schoolers or those looking for supplemental instruction outside of school,” said Gina Catanzarite, a 2011 Parents’ Choice Awards judge.
