Standing to Empower Learning

3 min read

The landscape of education is constantly shifting to support changes in curriculum and advancements in technology. With a new administration in place, we expect more transformation as educational legislation emerges. While we may not know exactly what that will entail, we do know that the need for quality digital resources capable of supporting the curriculum will continue to be critical to student success. For that, there’s Gale.

A key area of focus is on creating shorter pathways to learning by providing curriculum-aligned, authoritative content that can be integrated seamlessly into your day-to-day workflow. For educators, that means making the most of their time and resources as they search for materials. For students, it’s about offering access to reliable content and critical thinking tools that will better prepare them to be future ready.

Since our educators are at the forefront of student achievement, we know that keeping up with professional development trends is important to their success. That’s why we’ll continue to break the mold with PD collections from many of the top publishers. In fact, our 2017 Professional Development Resources Guide is a great place to start. To make aligning content to the STANDING WITH YOU TO EMPOWER LEARNING classroom even easier, we are growing our GVRL eBook platform with leveled titles. Added features such as collection customizations and tablet display enhancements make accessing and distributing content a breeze.

In addition to eBooks, our users benefit from a variety of age-appropriate, curriculum-aligned databases to support primary to secondary education, like Kids InfoBits and Gale’s In Context suite. Plus, our newest databases, Smithsonian Primary Sources in U.S. History and Gale Interactive: Science, help bridge the gap between library research and classroom instruction.

Of course, when students and teachers can be more collaborative, amazing learning can happen. That’s why we’ve integrated many of our products with G Suite for Education and Microsoft Office 365 collaboration tools to make sharing content second nature. And since discovery is equally important, we have implemented SSO integrations with companies like Clever and ClassLink and are planning LMS integration with popular providers in the K-12 space.

Our service goes far beyond the pages of this catalog. We have a culture of innovation and strive to empower educators and learners with solutions that drive greater outcomes and provide value. As goals change, count on Gale to be your trusted partner.
