FETC News: New interactive lessons for early education

A new partnership announced at the Florida Education Technology Conference makes available Waterford’s education programs to the more than 500,000 members of Promethean Planet, online community for users of interactive learning technology.

Waterford Institute has teamed with Promethean to create a new set of Phonological Awareness ActivLessons, which feature a sing along nursery rhyme, clickable illustrations, and researched teaching strategies designed to help students distinguish sounds when spoken. For students who need help strengthening vocabulary and sequencing skills, teachers can use the Waterford Reading Comprehension ActivLessons which features illustrated traditional stories.
