StudySync, the web-based Common Core curriculum from BookheadEd Learning, has partnered with Pearson's Online Learning Exchange (OLE) to deliver a robust collection of social studies content, taking advantage of OLE's unique customizable options.

The partnership will enhance Pearson's Online Learning Exchange's overall course offerings by adding a new set of social studies modules designed to maximize learning outcomes through student engagement. StudySync aligns to the Common Core and engages students in reading and writing across the curriculum through an extensive digital library of hundreds of texts, award-winning multimedia lessons, and proprietary online writing and peer review tools.

A web-delivered academic tool, StudySync offers multimedia lessons designed to increase reading, writing, critical thinking and academic collaboration. The product includes a diverse selection of texts, both fiction and nonfiction, TV-quality video lessons, and customizable writing prompts and assessment rubrics.

Using OLE, social studies teachers will now be able to create customized lessons, access etexts, and quickly search for content from Pearson and curated partners. StudySync's quality materials combined with OLE's unique set of collaboration tools and services will enable social studies teachers to interact with other educators, share experiences, offer up best practices, and engage in real-time conversations, the announcement states.

OLE was created with a vision to offer teachers and students an affordable single destination for finding high quality K-12 content coupled with a powerful set of personalized options and collaboration features.
