Capstone Unveils Newest Database Module PebbleGo Next
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – April 10, 2014 – Capstone, a leading publisher of children’s books and digital products and services, announced today at the Texas Library Association conference its newest line of database modules PebbleGo Next™. Building off the successful PebbleGo databases for grades PreK-3, PebbleGo Next will feature content connected to grades 3-6 curriculum with longer, more robust information.
PebbleGo Next debuts in the fall with a State and American Indian Studies module. Featuring articles for all 50 states, Puero Rico, and Washington, D.C., plus 11 American Indian culture areas with 40 distinct tribes, the module will explore the history, geography, government, people, and more across a variety of articles.
“Our customers have long been asking us for ‘the next PebbleGo’ for their researchers who have graduated into a higher reading level. PebbleGo Next will allow students to continue to grow in their research skills, while still offering all of the features which make the original PebbleGo so beloved,” said David Samuelson, General Manager of Capstone’s Library division.
Similar to the original PebbleGo, PebbleGo Next will include expertly levelled text, fully narrated by professional voice-over artists to provide essential scaffolds for struggling readers and English language learners. PebbleGo Next will employ a streamlined interface, animated highlighting, educational videos and games, and encompassing activities which teach students how to cite articles, create reports, and share what they’ve learned. The database will be available over the Internet 24/7 as an annual subscription for enrolled students.
Capstone is offering a pre-launch special for qualifying purchases by Sept. 30, 2014. Customers should contact their direct Capstone sales representative for pricing information.
