Great instruction starts with great content.
For our team, it was crucial to find a partner with deep domain expertise in K-12 education today, as well as the vision for what's possible tomorrow. It's rare to come across a firm that can combine those qualities to offer best-in-class guidance to an edtech company rapidly seeking scale. We found that combination in Owl.
Finding instructional content that is accessible to every learner, relevant and engaging, and aligned to state standards, is always challenging for educators. What’s more, during times of disruption, inflexible materials don’t translate well to distance-learning environments. Further, it’s challenging for teachers to stay connected with all students and ensure that instruction is equitable for all learners.
Newsela takes authentic content from the world’s most-trusted providers and turns it into learning materials that are instruction-ready — whether learning is happening in school or at home. This empowers teachers to make decisions and select the best content for their students, while giving administrators the assurance that all content is vetted and aligned to standards.
