Knovation icurio Adds SAS Curriculum Pathways
Knovation has expanded its partnership with SAS to make SAS Curriculum Pathways available through Knovation's digital curriculum content solution, icurio.
SAS Curriculum Pathways provides interactive, state and Common Core standards-based resources for grades six through 12 in English language arts, science, social studies, math, and Spanish, all of which will be available to icurio subscribers at no additional cost.
SAS Curriculum Pathways features more than 200 interactive tools, 200 inquiries, 600 Web lessons, and 70 audio tutorials. It focuses on active learning through doing, seeing, and listening and is designed to engage higher-order thinking skills. The resources can also be differentiated to meet the individual needs of each student.
"SAS' learner-centered approach focuses on measurable outcomes and targets higher-order thinking skills," said Randy Wilhelm, CEO of Knovation, in a prepared statement. "This aligns perfectly with our commitment to empower teachers as they transform their classrooms to engaging, learner-centered environments."
Knovation's icurio digital curriculum content solution includes more than 330,000 digital learning resources and includes tools such as a read aloud text-to-speech feature and a dictionary and translation tool. In addition to SAS Curriculum Pathways, icurio also includes digital learning resources from BrainPOP, Defined STEM, Learnetic Math and Science, National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) Learning Center, and other providers. According to the company, icurio helps schools make the transition from traditional printed materials to flexible digital resources.
"As the transformation from print to digital content in the classroom takes fold, we believe that SAS Curriculum Pathways content, combined with Knovation’s icurio solution, will not only help schools in their efforts to incorporate digital curriculum, but also better enable teachers to personalize lessons to the individual needs of every student," said Scott McQuiggan, director of SAS Curriculum Pathways, in a prepared statement.
