Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) September 14, 2009
Study Island, LLC, one of the leading and fastest growing Web-based educational companies, announces the launch of online community forums.
The Island Community, Study Island's group of forums, is designed to be an online meeting place for educators to share ideas and best practices, exchange tips and success stories, learn more about Study Island programs and industry trends, and much more.
To kick off the launch of the Island Community, Study Island is sponsoring an Island Community Block Party, a daily contest for registered forum users with a grand prize award to be drawn on October 1, 2009.
"What an exciting addition to the services Study Island has to offer," stated Greg Smith, Director of Professional Development and Social Networks of Archipelago Learning, Study Island's parent company. "Community forums are one of the best ways to communicate with our users and for our users to communicate with each other. Our goal with the Island Community is to assist educators and their students to be successful in 21st Century Classrooms."
The Island Community Block Party contest is from September 9, 2009 until September 30, 2009. Daily prizes include Study Island Social Networks t-shirts and one year TeacherWeb™ subscriptions. TeacherWeb™ provides tools to design teacher, school, and district websites and is a sister company to Study Island. The grand prize winner will receive a Zune HD 16 G Video mp3 player.
