Pearson Knowledge Technologies has announced that WriteToLearn is included in the Apple Digital Learning Series for middle and high school language arts. Designed to accompany Apple Mobile Learning Labs, the Apple Digital Learning Series provides a collection of value-priced curriculum solutions designed to enhance student information access and productivity and increase achievement in key curriculum areas.
With WriteToLearn, students practice essay writing and summarization skills. Their efforts are measured by Pearson's state-of-the-art Knowledge Analysis Technologies engine, which automatically evaluates the meaning of text by examining whole passages. Students receive immediate, specific feedback on their work, while teachers assess student efforts individually or as a class.
WriteToLearn is compatible with browsers running on Mac OS 9.2, Mac OS X version 10.0 or higher, and Windows 2000/XP or higher. It requires a Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.1 or higher or Netscape Navigator 7.0 or higher browser.
