Istation

Founded in 1998 and based in Dallas, Texas, Istation (Imagination Station) has become one of the nation’s leading providers of richly animated, game-like educational technology. Considered to be at the forefront of the educational technology sector, Istation has over 4 million student subscribers and serves over 8,900 campuses across the nation and in several countries. The Departments of Education in several major states have selected and implemented Istation as a state-wide program and primary provider of educational technology, with it quickly becoming the leading provider of assessments and curriculum across the nation.

Winner of several national educational technology awards, the Istation program puts more instructional time in the classroom through small-group and collaborative instruction. Istation’s innovative reading, math, and Spanish programs immerse students in an engaging and interactive environment that inspires them to learn. Administrators and educators can use Istation to easily track the progress of their students, schools, and classrooms.

Notably, some of the recent increase in Istation usage and efficacy has been in urban and rural schools. A policy brief published by the National Education Association (NEA) indicated that educators in urban and rural/small town schools are more likely to strongly agree about the value of educational technology. This is likely due to its usefulness as an engaging assistive-learning tool, particularly since students in low-income areas may have limited access to technology outside of school.

Contract Highlights:

  • Award-winning and comprehensive blending learning solution
  • Instantaneous access to data and teacher-directed lessons
  • Research-based and evidence-based curriculum
  • Automatic screening and progress monitoring
  • Istation has the ability for teachers to challenge every student, everyday
