The app is targeted for use with K–12 students in the classroom, media center, and at home with age-appropriate and curriculum content that develops the skills for career, college, and civic success. The app is free and includes free sample content to allow anyone to download the app and experience the potential of StrataLogica.

Launched in 2009, StrataLogica continues to be a leader of innovation in the 21st century digital classroom. As the iPad continues to proliferate in education, the StrataLogica app for iPad demonstrates Herff Jones | Nystrom’s commitment to creating immersive and effective learning experiences across multiple platforms.

The release of the app for iPad puts that power directly in the hands of the teacher and students, allowing them to tap, swipe, and pinch to explore and learn. Interacting with the world through StrataLogica becomes a very personal educational experience for the user. The availability of the app for iPad is expected to expand the use of StrataLogica in both the classroom and in the home.

“For the past several years StrataLogica has been providing relevant and engaging layers of geography, history, and earth science content in classrooms around the world. Given the growing popularity of the iPad in schools around the globe, it was only natural for us to create an app that would allow teachers and students to interact with StrataLogica’s layers of learning,” said Don Rescigno, director of marketing, Herff Jones | Nystrom. “These content layers are engaging and target the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects.”

Any startup has to have a clear go –to-market strategy from the beginning. Similarly, any data science project has to have a go to production strategy from its first days, so it could go beyond proof-of-concept.
