Vocabulary Instruction Program Meets Needs of Mobile Device Movement in Classrooms
GREENVILLE, Wis. – Sept. 10, 2013 – EPS Literacy and Intervention, a division of School Specialty, Inc., announced today the release of the Wordly Wise 3000® Online app for iPad®. Now available on the App Store, the Wordly Wise 3000 Online app for iPad allows students to seamlessly transition between activities on their iPads and a desktop, with all of their results showing up in the teacher’s reports. Wordly Wise 3000 Online is a dynamic and interactive program that helps students master the academic vocabulary that they encounter in school every day.
With more than 10 million iPads in schools worldwide, the Wordly Wise 3000 Online app for iPad meets the needs of the growing number of teachers who use mobile devices for instruction. The app is free for schools that subscribe to Wordly Wise 3000 Online. A Wordly Wise 3000 Online app for Android devices is set to launch later this year.
“Vocabulary development is a key component of today’s more rigorous learning goals,” said Rick Holden, President of EPS. “By extending access to Wordly Wise 3000 Online to mobile devices, we are offering students the chance to build those critical skills anytime, anywhere, on any device they choose.”
Wordly Wise 3000 Online presents the same robust vocabulary curriculum as the popular print program. The academic vocabulary taught improves reading comprehension as students learn the words they need for success in grade-level literature, content-area texts and on standardized tests, such as state assessments and the PSAT, SAT and ACT. The Wordly Wise 3000 curriculum is closely aligned with the Common Core State Standards and other individual state standards, as well as the National Council of Teachers of English and the International Reading Association standards.
