Electronic Workbooks Make the Grade for Back-to-School!

School Zone Interactive has combined the very best of traditional workbooks with
today’s innovative multimedia technology. Award-winning Electronic Workbooks
are the  perfect Back-to-School tools for children ages 2-12. 
 
GRAND HAVEN, MI, August 1, 2001—Just in time for Back-to-School, School Zone Interactive’s On-Track Software line of prestigious Electronic Workbooks offer parents, teachers and students a diverse educational curriculum for preschoolers through grade 4. Unique in their content and design, though familiar to every child that ever took a pencil to a traditional paper workbook, School Zone’s Electronic Workbooks are both an industry success story and an invaluable teaching tool.
 
Electronic Workbooks are based on best selling paper workbooks from School Zone Publishing, a trusted industry leader of children’s educational products for over 20 years. In view of the tremendous success of workbooks and flash cards as teaching tools, and the proven effectiveness of interactive multimedia as an educational venue, School Zone Interactive created the first Electronic Workbook. This On-Track Software series has earned over 40 industry awards since first introduced in 2000. Electronic Workbooks are leading the way in focused, curriculum-specific educational programs for students.
 
“Our educational content sets us apart from other edutainment titles. Electronic Workbooks are a refreshing alternative to some of the fool’s gold out there. We take the educational experience to the next level—a skill-specific mix-n-match educational program that can be customized for every child,” says Jonathan Hoffman, CEO of School Zone Interactive. He adds, “School Zone Publishing is the market leader in traditional paper workbooks and School Zone Interactive will achieve the same success with Electronic Workbooks.” 
 
Children’s Software Revue editor, Warren Buckleitner, considers Electronic Workbooks a welcome addition to today’s educational software. “School Zone Interactive’s Electronic Workbooks will give your kids the extra practice they need with those stubborn school subjects.” 
 
Electronic Workbooks provide children with comprehensive and engaging educational content presented in creative activities accented with fun-filled games. This curriculum is now an integral educational resource for parents and educators nationwide. Each is geared towards a specific skill set that progressively guides students through a focused series of learning objectives. Each of the titles come with a suggested retail price of $19.99, and are available for both Windows® and Macintosh® systems. For an added value, each is packaged with a traditional School Zone workbook or storybooks.
