Sunburst Joins Forces with Flocabulary to Bring Hip-Hop to the Classroom


Chicago, IL, February 24, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Sunburst Digital has formed a national reselling partnership with Flocabulary, one of the most talked-about emerging digital content systems across all of K-12. Effective today, Flocabulary’s new unlimited school subscription is available through Sunburst Digital’s sales team.

Flocabulary is an online learning platform that features hundreds of songs, videos and activities for grades K-12. There are resources for all subject areas, including ELA, social studies, current events, science and math. The program is aligned to common core standards, based on established academic research, and proven to raise scores on state reading tests. Unlimited online access for all teachers and students is available through a simple and affordable $1,200 flat-rate site license.

“Sunburst has established itself as the preeminent resource for digital learning programs, and Flocabulary’s web-based program seems to be a great fit for their catalog,” explains Flocabulary CEO Alex Rappaport. “We are very excited about the partnership and the new sales capabilities it brings.”

Flocabulary’s ground-breaking Word Up Project, part of the new digital subscription, can be used in whole class instruction, small groups, or individualized learning. It’s proven to be an effective system to make gains in vocabulary comprehension for English Language Learners, struggling readers, and even as advanced SAT preparation. The online system is fully compatible on any computer or mobile device including Apple iPads and other tablets.

“No educational system available today engages students the way Flocabulary does with hip-hop, cultural relevance, and high-interest activities,” remarks Josh Bohls, Sunburst VP of Sales and Marketing. “And when fun instruction in the classroom can be measured in real student achievement gains as proven in a 2009 study conducted by the Educational Research Institute of America, it’s hard to imagine why a district would not want to take a look.”

To launch the new partnership Flocabulary is offering an exclusive 30 day trial when registering through this special link: http://flocabulary.com/sb30/ - try it today or contact us at (800) 321-7511 for more information.
