The app is free and includes free sample content to allow anyone to download the app and experience the potential of StrataLogica.

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.

The iPad is the perfect delivery vehicle for StrataLogica, and the application takes advantage of the iPad’s features in order to elevate the StrataLogica experience to a new level. I can’t wait to see students around the world using it in and out of the classroom.”

Herff Jones | Nystrom will introduce the StrataLogica app for iPad at the Florida Education and Technology Conference in Orlando, FL, and the BETT Show in London, UK.
