With the use of mobile devices higher than ever and showing no signs of slowing, officials at the Wireless Smartphone Strategies service said there are more than one billion smartphones in operation around the world. Mobile devices are already used to enhance learning inside and outside the classroom. StudyDog, an online reading program for elementary school students, offers a complete learning program that works on a variety of mobile devices for learning on the go.

“We knew that mobile computing would be the way of the future and had this in mind when we developed StudyDog years ago,” said Deme Clainos, a spokesman for StudyDog. “There is no other comprehensive reading program on the market today that is able to function on such a wide variety of mobile devices. Students now have the flexibility to continue learning wherever they go.”
StudyDog works great on Apple’s iPad and the new iPad mini (with apps to help run Flash). StudyDog also works on Android devices, Kindle Fire, Barnes and Noble’s Nook Color and the BlackBerry PlayBook. Using StudyDog on many mobile devices is a seamless process.
Using fun characters and games, StudyDog teaches children to read while focusing on phonics, fluency, vocabulary, phonemic awareness and comprehension. The program allows children to learn at their own pace, automatically adjusting to each child’s individual learning needs to help them master reading fundamentals needed for success.
“In the last year we have seen major growth in the number of users coming to the StudyDog website using a mobile device,” Clainos said. “Not only can children use StudyDog on a mobile device, but parents and teachers are able to use smartphones and tablets to check progress reports and view real-time feedback on the child’s reading development.”
StudyDog is a proven leader in helping children quickly learn to read and has helped more than 6 million kids master basics like phonics. The company creates interactive reading programs specially designed for elementary students. What sets StudyDog apart from other learning programs is how StudyDog engages future readers as young as 3 years old. Similar reading software is able to engage older students who already know how to read. But StudyDog uses games and other features to connect with younger children who haven’t learned to read yet. StudyDog’s Adventures in Reading series is used in more than 3,000 schools nationwide. The lessons were designed to meet state early learning standards and the guidelines of the National Reading Panel. StudyDog programs have been used in schools for the past six years.
