[prMac.com] Stamford, Connecticut - Brain Parade, developer of innovative mobile education tools, has taken the wraps off of its newest and most comprehensive product, See.Touch.Learn.(TM) PRO 2012. Hot on the heels of CBS 60 Minutes feature on Apps for Autism, Brain Parade adds See.Touch.Learn.(TM) Pro 2012 to its suite of apps for children with autism and special needs.
See.Touch.Learn. PRO bundles all of the features and add-ons of its sister product, See.Touch.Learn. FREE, and will offer additional features that are designed for learning professionals. See.Touch.Learn. PRO is designed for the user who wishes to make use of all of the functionality that is available whereas See.Touch.Learn. FREE is an a-la-carte product, giving users the option to purchase only the add-ons they want.
In addition, beginning today educational institutions that participate in the Apple App Store Volume Purchase Program will be able to purchase See.Touch.Learn. Pro 2012 under the terms of that program.
Brain Parade founder and President Jim McClafferty said, "Our professional customers, special education teachers, speech-language pathologists, therapists and behavior consultants, have most frequently cited two things they would like to see in See.Touch.Learn.: First, a more economical way to purchase multiple add-ons, and second, additional features that make See.Touch.Learn. more effective for the learning professional. We address both of those areas with See.Touch.Learn. Pro 2012."
Savings for Power Users:
See.Touch.Learn. Free offers add-on features and 24 image libraries containing more than 1,700 images and 1,300 exercises at prices ranging from $0.99 to $6.99. See.Touch.Learn. PRO 2012 includes all of those items as well as at least 10 new libraries to be released through 2012 at a single introductory price of just $24.99.
"See.Touch.Learn. PRO 2012 provides a great value to our customers, and one that will continue to improve over time as we add new libraries and features", McClafferty said. "Today, the cost of purchasing all of the libraries and add-on features individually is more than $41. See.Touch.Learn. PRO 2012 offers a 40% discount versus individual purchases."
Additional Features Designed for the Learning Professional
Brain Parade surveyed over 2,500 users including special education teachers, behavior consultants, speech-language pathologists, therapists, and psychologists and asked what features they would like to see added to See.Touch.Learn.. The top responses were: better student management, improved data tracking, and the ability to share lessons. Those three features and many others will be introduced in future updates to See.Touch.Learn. Pro 2012.
"There are plenty of products out there that are designed to be used standalone by the child or student," McClafferty adds, "but See.Touch.Learn. was designed from the beginning to be used in an interactive setting between a teacher (or parent) and a student. With See.Touch.Learn. PRO 2012 we continue to enhance the product with features that allow the learning professional to deliver more effective lessons and make better use of their lesson time."
