HMH Rolls Out Offline Sync, Integrations, New Student Content, and Teacher Journeys

Learning technology company HMH this week showcased a host of enhancements to Ed, its teaching and learning platform, including integrations with Google Classroom and Clever and enhancements to its core solutions, and intervention and professional learning services, according to a company blog post.

With the onboarding capability for Google Classroom users, teachers can assign HMH instructional content through Google Classroom and use Ed’s automated grading and reporting features, HMH said. The new integration with Clever adds automated registration and single sign-on capabilities at no additional cost.

HMH has also rolled out “enhanced interactivity” and online/offline synchronization with its Go learning app so that learning materials are always available to students even if the internet connection is not, said the society.

The integrated assessment system, HMH Growth Measure, has improved data to better inform educator placement decisions and district planning.

New features on the student side

New features for students announced by HMH include:

  • “Explore Zone Simulations,” now available through HMH’s Math 180 intervention solution, shows students how math is used in real-life careers and lets them “explore the impact of math decisions,” HMH said.
  • The new Learning Zone progress and performance tracker even lets students track their own achievements.
  • Guided Writing Practice Curriculum Writable has a list of new mini-lessons for grades 6-12, each focused on a specific ELA skill.
  • Waggle, HMH’s supplemental math and ELA practice software, now offers a suite of lessons in Spanish, along with a new dashboard for teachers, improved data reporting, and updated auto-assignment features .
  • Math 180 and English 3D have expanded materials and more content for English language learners.

More closely related curriculum

HMH said its connected approach means its solutions are uniquely integrated in ways that enhance teaching and learning.

“For example, HMH’s new digital and print-twin solution, AI-based tutor Amira Learning and Saxon Phonics & Spelling, will combine Amira’s ESSA-strong 1:1 reading tutoring with phonics-based explicit instruction on Saxon’s research to provide systematic foundational reading support for K-2 learners,” the company said. “Amira will also now provide teacher and district skills reports and continue to build on her skills lessons that support readers in English and Spanish.”

New professional learning and educator features

HMH also introduced what it called “more personalized professional learning” called Teacher Success Pathways on its Ed platform; Course topics match each teacher’s curriculum and grade level, HMH said. Content includes interactive media, practice teacher lesson templates, editable lesson plans, and hands-on tutorials for HMH solutions.

Both live and recorded sessions are offered on the platform, HMH said. Other enhancements for teachers allow “greater teacher control over the homework workflow, making it easier for teachers to manage the volume of student assignments,” the company said.
