Addition of Differentiated Science Content Broadens Ability to Drive Literacy, Content Mastery, and Career Exploration
LAKEWOOD, N.J., June 9, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Beable Education announced that it has acquired Readorium, a leading provider of educational software that teaches reading comprehension skills through science text differentiated to students' reading levels. Beable will integrate Readorium's standards-aligned content into its industry-leading online Literacy Recovery Platform starting with the 2022/23 school year.
Created and 'battle tested' at the height of Covid, Beable puts all students grades 2-12 on the path to literacy recovery and gainful employment. By cultivating the whole child, Beable creates adaptive pathways for each learner that encompass personal growth, career exploration, and academic rigor.
"Readorium has an extraordinary track record for effectively improving reading skills while teaching science," stated Beable CEO Saki Dodelson. "It's a perfect addition to the Beable platform, which uses academic content differentiated to each student's reading level, targeted scaffolds, and self-selected, high-interest readings to provide the time-on-task to drive literacy, content mastery, and student agency."
Susan Gertler, Beable's Chief Academic Officer, added: "In addition to literacy recovery, Beable provides personalized career exploration based on students' interests and values. With our new science content, students will develop reading skills while also developing a love for science. Beable can then channel students' growing interest in science to STEM-related career opportunities."
Harriet Isecke, Readorium's Founder and CEO, commented that "Readorium was built by a dedicated group of educators passionate about reading and science who set out to change the way kids learn. We couldn't have found a better home for our approach and our content than Beable, which has set out as we did to transform learning by bringing literacy acceleration, career exposure, personal growth, and academic rigor across content areas together in a single platform."
"We have long and deeply respected Harriet and the Readorium team for their innovation and impact. Readorium has won many awards for quality and efficacy, including a CODiE Award and Reimagine Education Award. Having won a CODiE ourselves in 2021, we are in the best of company," Dodelson said.
