SmartBook 2.0 is an adaptive reading and learning solution. Rooted in learning science principles like spacing, chunking, and interleaving, SmartBook 2.0 creates mini-cycles of questions that consist of no more than five concepts at a time, creating smaller, easier-to-absorb “chunks” of content. The unique question approach improves comprehension and long-term retention, building student confidence. Assignments can be completed on the ReadAnywhere app, providing students access 24/7.
