PLATO Learning launches first-ever educational content for PSP(R) (PlayStation(R)Portable) handheld entertainment system

For kids in the digital age, it's a familiar refrain, "no video games until you finish your homework." But what happens when homework is a video game?

PLATO Learning, Inc., a leading provider of K-adult computer-based and e-learning solutions, is forever changing the definition of "homework." The company announced today it is first to market in North America with educational gaming software for Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.'s PSP(R) (PlayStation(R)Portable)--selling its popular PLATO Achieve Now program on one of the hottest-selling handheld entertainment systems beginning this April.

PLATO Achieve Now delivers research-based educational content as a series of fun, interactive games, which are proven to help elementary and middle school students meet high academic standards and improve academic proficiency. The software challenges students to practice, advance, and excel through games that target key language arts, reading, and mathematics skills. With more than 2,000 hours of content aligned to all 50 states, PLATO Achieve Now's 57 games provide kids with an engaging, supplemental study tool to boost their academic skills through expanded class-time and school-to-home deployment.
