Grand Junction, CO (August 22, 2017) – Bernie Marasco, co-founder of AceReader, Inc., teamed up with Professor Constance Leonard and Dr. Gary Mills, both of the U.S. Air Force Academy, to present an in-depth seminar entitled "'Read' Warning: Side-effects Include Retention, Engagement, & Prolonged Intellectual Arousal" at the 2017 COLTT conference in Boulder. The USAFA has been using AceReader in its classrooms for the past eight years."
The COLTT conference was designed to "engage participants in learning about teaching practices and technologies, challenging the way they think about both. By attending sessions and hands-on workshops, attendees are able to network and gather effective practices that change the way they teach and learn in classrooms, online, and in virtual environments."
"It's been a true honor working with the reading instructors at USAFA for all these years," commented Marasco, "and it’s been a two-way street. We provide a solution they need, and over the years they have given us good input on features they wanted to see in the program. Our implementation of those features has made the program better for them as well as for all schools."
The seminar offered practical techniques for instructors to help students improve their reading skills in three key areas: speed, comprehension, and recall. Proven techniques such as previewing, visualization, the traits of good readers, clustering, and using a pacer were shared with the attendees. The technology component centered on interaction with AceReader®, an online reading engagement experience, as well as other platforms such as other phone apps.
"We have been working very hard on our school edition of AceReader, and we are hearing great things back from teachers and principals about the product, so it’s very gratifying to get this added recognition in support of our efforts," Marasco continued.
AceReader is available by yearly subscription. In addition to the Education edition for schools which is the flagship product, it also comes in Family and Personal Editions suitable for families and individual consumers. Schools enjoy lower cost-per-student pricing and should contact AceReader, Inc. to set up a demonstration and to review pricing options.
