Rosetta Stone Inc., provider of technology-based language-learning solutions, today announced an initiative program with Lodi Unified School District to provide the Rosetta Stone TOTALe® Course™ HD application for iPad® devices, part of the TOTALe® PRO solution, for English language learners. The school district, in the Central Valley of Northern California, is one of the first districts to implement the TOTALe Course HD application.

The Rosetta Stone TOTALe Course HD application for iPad® devices was adopted by Lodi Unified School District for second- and third-grade English language learners whose language development had reached a plateau. Lodi Unified School District is using a blended learning model that combines classroom instruction with individualized independent study using the full Rosetta Stone TOTALe® solution, including the TOTALe Course HD application.

The district seeks to use the Rosetta Stone solution as a resource to build speaking confidence, increase classroom engagement and enhance learners’ proficiency in English. The TOTALe® solution offers teachers the ability to create individualized classroom instruction based on each student’s ability.

“We are finding that our students are reacting very positively to Rosetta Stone solutions,” said Art Hand Jr., assistant superintendent for Lodi Unified School District. “Children that have more limited language skills are often less confident in the classroom setting. Now that students are working with a program that enables them to go at their own pace and focus on areas where they tend to struggle, we see their confidence increasing. They’re excited about speaking and learning.”

The Rosetta Stone TOTALe Course HD application for iPad® devices is one part of the Rosetta Stone TOTALe PRO solution, which includes the following components:

  • Rosetta Course®. The self-study software with proprietary speech-recognition technology. The Rosetta Stone Dynamic Immersion™ method helps learners to think in a new language by connecting words with vivid imagery in real-life contexts to convey meaning.
  • Rosetta Studio®. Live sessions conducted by native speakers in an interactive, online environment for practicing speaking skills with other learners at the same level.
  • Rosetta World®. Rosetta World presents a structured, online environment to help learners practice skills in games designed for their learning level.
  • Rosetta Stone Manager™. An administrative tool for teachers to manage and measure student engagement and create actionable reports on student progress and scores.
