Great River Learning's (GRL) mission is to publish highly engaging and interactive educational products for students; and provide individualized solutions for educators.
OUR POINT OF VIEW
Since 2005, GRL has challenged the status quo of traditional textbook publishing. Our publications:
More effectively engage students and establish more relevancy.
Integrate multi-media as a primary design utility.
Provide our partners and adopters with superior support.
Most textbooks contain suitable content, but we know many students only open their textbooks when they’re preparing (or cramming) for a quiz or test. The traditional, print-focused, one-size-fits-all textbook approach is antiquated and unnecessary. Technology and multi-media can be powerful components that enhance or enrich students’ educational content. Most publishers, however, continue to attach loosly tied and mediocre websites to encyclopedic textbooks. The result is an unreasonably expensive product that is too bulky to cover within a standard academic term. In addition, many educators need to supplement their textbook with more contemporary or relevant examples.
Today’s students have grown-up with technology and multi-media. They’re used to using their smart phones and other devices to access information and communicate. Instead of fighting this reality, GRL chooses to take advantage and integrate these types of technologies.
