With the influx of technology in the classroom and at home, we have the ability to make instruction more informed and learning more personalized and accessible for all students,” said Bob Holl, president and cofounder of Learning A-Z. “What truly sets Raz-Plus apart from other blended learning platforms is its emphasis on flexible teacher-led instruction. By providing a vast library of developmentally appropriate resources in multiple formats, we simply make it easier and more efficient for teachers to deliver the personalized instruction and content students need to become better readers and better students.”
