Capstone Digital is taking personalized learning to a new level. Next week at FETC 2011, the company is launching what it describes as a “one-of-a-kind” literacy environment that will help students take more responsibility for their learning—with the support of teachers, librarians, administrators and parents.
How is Capstone Digital making this level of personalization possible? Like many other companies before them, with the widely adopted Lexile® Framework for Reading.
Capstone Digital just announced a partnership with MetaMetrics to use the Lexile Framework to level its digital content and monitor student progress toward goals. According to company President Todd Brekhus, “Our goal is to personalize the reading experience for every student. Collaborating with MetaMetrics to develop our new literacy program puts us one step closer to achieving this goal. Now we can provide educators with a powerful and proven tool to differentiate reading instruction for their students, and track their growth in reading ability.”
So far, Capstone Digital has leveled more than 14,000 books from its various imprints and divisions. These Lexile measures will enable educators to personalize students’ reading plans—by assigning books at the right difficulty level to encourage independent reading and increase confidence.
Check back here next week for more details on how Capstone Digital’s innovative new product will encourage a love of reading and increase growth—one student at a time.
