Root-One, Inc. Launches an Adaptive App To Help Students Learn and Master Essential Language Arts Skills Using Common Core Aligned Content
SXSW, Austin, TX, March 6, 2012 - Root-One, Inc, an award-winning developer of apps that make learning engaging and effective, today launched Word Kung Fu, an adaptive web-based app, aimed at helping elementary and middle-school students learn and master their vocabulary, grammar, usage and mechanics skills. Students interact with grade-appropriate content aligned to Common Core standards via engaging and adaptive mini-games.
Word Kung Fu is built on technology that enables and evaluates the student's mastery of Language Arts skills. By continually personalizing the level of difficulty based on each student, the learning material never feels too easy or too difficult. This motivates students to learn more effectively, and keeps them engaged for the entire school year and beyond.
Over 70% of the Common Core standards per grade are covered with over 1000 high-quality items, such as word/definition pairs, grammar examples, etc. These are rendered through mini-games within Word Kung Fu, which students play for 15 to 30 minutes daily to master their Language Arts skills.
Availability and Pricing
Word Kung Fu will be available soon through Edmodo's Apps Marketplace roll-out, and will initially be available for grade 3 for $30 per year for a classroom (of up to 30 students). Common Core aligned content for all other elementary and middle school grades will be available by this summer. Additionally, we plan to release apps for Apple's App Store and the Chrome Web Store soon.
