Gale, a Cengage company, has announced the launch of Gale In Context: For Educators, a new product that gives educators a more effective approach to curriculum development and classroom instruction. Fuelled by content from the Gale In Context suite of student databases, For Educators provides standards-aligned lesson plans and instructional materials. A specialised toolkit helps educators collect, personalise and share resources quickly and easily with colleagues and students across their district.
Studies show that teachers spend seven hours per week searching for instructional resources. For Educators removes this complexity by streamlining access to curated and authoritative educational resources within their subscribed Gale In Context databases, empowering teachers with a single point of access to the technology, tools and resources they need, saving them time and effort while enhancing their classroom curriculum.
This new product marks a major milestone in Gale’s commitment to delivering innovative classroom solutions that advance education by focusing on student success, promoting equity of access and creating shorter pathways to learning.
Gale In Context: For Educators provides Instructional Support to help teachers discover digital learning materials to supplement their classroom curriculum with national and state standards-aligned instructional content and related lesson plans. Customisation supports the demand to provide personalised and differentiated instruction with tools and features that can identify and customise resources for diverse classroom needs. Time-saving workflow tools enable time-challenged educators to access curriculum-aligned resources across their subscribed products in a single, educator-focused interface, integrated with other workflow tools and platforms. Smarter collaboration connects library resources to classroom curriculum and gives educators, within schools and across districts, the means to easily share and collaborate around resources for students.
Gale In Context databases have a long history of supporting teacher effectiveness and student achievement. A recent nationwide study conducted by Project Tomorrow® on behalf of Gale, found two in three teachers (77 percent) say their students are now ‘future ready’ as a result of using Gale resources to support learning activities. Additionally, 80 percent of ninth-grade students say they are likely to use Gale again if their teacher assigns another research project.
Gale will showcase Gale In Context: For Educators at the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) Conference, November 14-16 in Louisville, KY at Gale booth #101.
