01 Mar NeuronFarm announces literacy training website
MADISON – The NeuronFarm LLC, a privately held Madison, Wisconsin-based educational software company announced the launch of a new website to introduce its products designed for students, educators and parents interested in literacy.
The website (www.NeuronFarm.com) provides information about The NeuronFarm’s e-learning literacy modules that cover a range of topics from how to aid struggling readers to how to self-monitor higher levels of text comprehension. The training modules vary in length and utilize innovative simulations, proprietary scoring algorithms, and evidence-based, best learning practices.
Several of the current modules have been written with the local Schools of Hope volunteer initiative in mind. Funding has been provided by the U.S. Department of Education, and the NeuronFarm’s mission is aligned with several of the tenets of the No Child Left Behind Act. The company plans to release new training modules over the coming months.
The NeuronFarm’s Founder and President, Dr. Johnson-Glenberg explains, “Poor readers are going to be left behind in the new technology-centered economy. The NeuronFarm’s website will provide valuable training materials for educators and for parents who are interested in increasing their children’s reading skills.” A reading specialist with a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology, Dr. Johnson-Glenberg is also affiliated with the Waisman Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison as an Assistant Research Scientist.
The website describes the company’s comprehensive solution: educators/teachers are provided professional development lessons and student assessments; administrators are provided data management and reporting tools; and parents, students and volunteers can learn anytime/anywhere with the interactive Web-based modules.
The NeuronFarm is an educational software company engaged in the design, development and distribution of quality educational content. The company’s mission is to increase literacy for all levels of readers. In order to meet these goals, all learning modules incorporate evidence-based learning theory, interactive feedback, and real-time assessment technology.
