Start off 2019 by discovering why Academic Benchmarks isn’t just about learning standards.
Managing and maintaining alignments of educational content to academic standards can be challenging—especially when there are hundreds of different educational standards that are regularly changing over time.
Award-winning education technology company, Nearpod, uses Academic Benchmarks alignment and search capabilities to bring interactive learning into the classroom. Adam Franklin, a learning experience designer at Nearpod, shares his perspective on how integrating AB Connect™ has impacted their business.

This enables educators to find the content necessary to help their students achieve standard mastery.
