Access and Manage Educational Software Online
Edmark now offers the edConnect Membership, an online teacher destination for education solutions. It features software management solutions, online resources, offline activities, a software collection and lesson-planning assistance. Teachers can instantly access online resources that draw from three main areas: the Software Collection, Software Manager and Planning & Resource Center.
The Software Collection features dozens of Edmarks software activities, geared toward early learning, language arts, reading, math, science, and critical thinking. Each activity addresses students multiple learning styles, while offering opportunities to work collaboratively. The Software Manager delivers software directly to schools via the Internet, and offers user-friendly administrative tools to incorporate student lists, class rosters, and records of students progress. The Planning & Resource Center helps educators integrate and implement all of the elements of edConnect, identifying appropriate online content and providing offline activities and lesson plans to support curriculum needs. All products are correlated with state and national standards. Membership with edConnect is available to schools and districts, rather than individual teachers. Edmark Corp., Redmond, WA, (800) 362-2890, www.edmark.com.
