TUCSON, Ariz., Jan. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Learning A-Z®, a leading provider of PreK–6 literacy-focused products and a division of Cambium Learning® Group, Inc., announced today that students using the company's digital resources have completed more than a billion eLearning activities since March 2016 and more than five billion eLearning activities since 2005.
Through Learning A-Z's eLearning portal Kids A-Z, students can read developmentally appropriate books, draft digital compositions, create their own books, and complete comprehension quizzes and summative English Language Arts (ELA) practice assessments. Students can access resources independently and as assigned by their teachers.
"As education continues to shift more to a blended model, it's critical that we ensure students have easy access to developmentally appropriate content in multiple formats," said Bob Holl, president and cofounder of Learning A-Z.
"The fact that we continue to see students completing more and more assignments and accessing more and more texts to build reading fluency and practice literacy skills on their own is a testament to the importance of making learning more accessible through technology. That students completed more than a billion eLearning activities in the past nine months is a clear indicator of where the focus of education is heading."
