The non-profit Waterford Research Institute announced today the launch of Classroom Advantage, an instructional tool aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and aimed at the US school market.

With Classroom Advantage, teachers can customize their lessons with content designed for the common core while maximizing the use of whiteboard technology in their classrooms.”
Used on its own or in conjunction with Waterford´s highly successful individualized instructional tools, Classroom Advantage is a cloud-based library of learning activities for large and small group instruction at the front of the classroom. Teachers can leverage pre-defined sequences of activities or they can create custom playlists from over 4,800 songs, books, lessons, games and other interactive activities.
Waterford Research Institute will showcase Classroom Advantage at the ISTE Conference in San Antonio, TX in June 2013. Attendees can visit exhibit booth 2265 for an interactive demo.
