Mimio has created an iPad app that broadens the ways in which teachers and students can use the MimioReading comprehension suite in the classroom and beyond. Designed as a companion to the comprehension suite, the new app gives anytime, anywhere access to interactive, mastery lessons on the four primary components of comprehension - finding facts, making inferences, identifying themes and the "main idea," and learning vocabulary in context.
Schools acquire the app when they purchase the MimioReading comprehension suite. Teachers can have students do MimioReading's age-appropriate content and challenging activities on iPads in the classroom, but they also have the option of activating at-home access for whichever student they choose. Families who have bought MimioReading for home use can download the app for themselves from the iTunes App Store at no cost.
Users can utilize the app to access MimioReading's component programs:
- MimioSprout Early Reading provides basic reading skills intervention for students in grade three and above.
- MimioReading Individualized Instruction adapts to each student's specific learning pace, improving reading comprehension in grades three through five and providing effective intervention for grades five through eight.
- MimioReading Group Instruction offers interactive group activities that can be adapted or edited to meet the needs of multiple students or the entire class in grades three through eight.
• MimioStudio classroom software automatically integrates the entire MimioClassroom family of products
