"In our estimation, the conversion of all of the robust personalized learning
technology and the data reporting functionality in READ 180 makes it the most
ambitious educational program available on the iPad," said Margery Mayer,
President of Scholastic Education.

The powerful, new iPad-ready technology in READ 180 makes it lighter, smarter
and more flexible for today's teachers and students by:

1) Allowing for extended student access outside of the classroom and
beyond the school day.

2) Providing an even more personalized learning experience on personal
devices and ensuring every student progresses on his or her own path.

3) Giving teachers and administrators unparalleled access to data,
delivered through dashboards as they walk the room.

4) Increasing student engagement through the iPad's intuitive touch
screen technology.

5) Reducing startup time and making for an easier implementation across a
school or district, so precious instructional time is not wasted.

6) Lowering the total cost of program ownership by providing access
through less expensive devices.

"Educators for years have talked with excitement about the possibilities for
using tablet devices in education, to really change the game. We think this
iPad-ready technology, starting with the full READ 180 student experience,
shows what students and teachers are capable of when they have the right
support," Mayer said. "It is further evidence of Scholastic's ability to
combine innovation with research to create programs that accelerate learning
and ensure all students are meeting college and career-ready expectations."
