Education Publisher Launches Digital Learning Division

McGraw-Hill Education launched a new division devoted to digital learning programs for the K-12 market. The focus of the division is on the development of effective K-12 technology-based programs that improve teaching and learning. The new division allows McGraw-Hill Education to both expand its existing educational technology initiatives as well as increase its number of digital product offerings.

McGraw-Hill Digital Learning will develop new diagnostic and prescriptive learning programs that improve teaching and learning. Remedial and gifted students who have unique learning styles and are often underserved will be one area of focus. For example, the group will develop new products to assess student knowledge and then channel appropriately leveled content as the student masters topics and skills. These applications will help teachers customize instruction and allow for individualized learning so that students can achieve success at their own pace and level.

The new digital education division will further develop The McGraw-Hill Learning Network, MHLN.com, an online platform that provides interactive e-textbooks, teacher resources and school-home communications services. New online interactive books in a variety of content areas will be added to MHLN.com, which currently includes science pre-algebra and algebra e-books for middle and high school students. An online assessment component will also be integrated, allowing teachers to immediately assess which students grasped a concept and which students need additional help. More standards-based lesson plans, correlated to state and local standards, will also be available online. McGraw-Hill Education, New York, NY, (212)512-2000, www.mcgraw-hill.com.
