New See.Touch.Learn.® Site Edition connects through private, visual learning communities
STAMFORD, Conn. (June 24, 2013) – Brain Parade®, a developer of learning solutions for children with special needs, announces the release of See.Touch.Learn.® Site Edition. The company’s visual learning iPad application is available for private implementation in classroom, school and district settings. The package provides training sessions to educators and enables them to share custom content with teaching aides, therapists and parents in their own private school communities.
“Consistency and communication are important aspects of special education,” said Brain Parade President Jim McClafferty. “The new See.Touch.Learn. Site Edition provides a platform for educators and therapists to better communicate with each other, and with parents, by sharing exercises and maintaining a consistent lesson plan for each student.”
Recently voted Most Likely to Succeed Product during the Ed Tech Industry Summit Innovation Incubator Program, See.Touch.Learn. brings picture card learning into the 21st Century. Its lessons combine high-quality images with the interactivity of the iPad, eliminating bulky, expensive flashcards. Additionally, the Brain Parade Community provides the ability to exchange lessons with others, creating a collaborative library of content with more than 350,000 users worldwide.
Based on feedback from users, Brain Parade developed the option to create private communities where teachers can share individualized, custom lessons with others involved in the child’s education plan. It’s another step in the company’s mission to develop innovative technology solutions for children with special needs, according to McClafferty.
Future capabilities of the application and its online counterpart will enable both teachers and parents to monitor a student’s progress and success, improving communication channels between the home and school settings.
“Collaboration between parents and educators is critical to students’ success, and we’re ever- mindful of fostering that teamwork when we develop new features,” said McClafferty. “A child’s education doesn’t pause after leaving the school building each day, so, a stronger home-to-school connection means improved learning outcomes for every student.”
