Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) March 11, 2013
Students using the award-winning digital learning solution Wowzers® will soon enjoy an even more engaging experience, as the company unveils several new sound features at this year’s ASCD Annual Conference & Exhibit in Chicago.
The upgrades, highlighted at Wowzers’ booth 209, will further enrich student engagement and provide a more realistic, immersive experience. New features include:
- Audio “markers” – sounds associated with visual cues – that help to draw student’s attention to key points in the program
- Differentiated sounds to distinguish the “exploring” and “learning” parts of the program
- Performance-enhancing audio features that allow students to hear distinctive sounds highlighting “rewards,” “assistance needed” and other program components.
- Better overall sound quality
“At Wowzers, our goal is to provide the most robust, immersive learning experience we can,” said Wowzers president Andrew Howard. “These added sound features will help students feel even more engaged in their Wowzers personalized learning experience.”
The new sound enhancements are currently part of the middle school Wowzers program, but are scheduled to be included in all of Wowzers’ programs in the near future. The enhancement will be an automatic upgrade, at no additional cost to users.
