Really Good Stuff, LLC, a subsidiary of Excelligence Learning Corporation and a leading provider of educational tools and solutions to elementary teachers and parents, announced today that it will launch its flagship digital product, Really Good Stuff Digital Learning Collection, in time for back to school in September 2018, in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

According to a recent research study1, 88% of Kindergarten through second grade teachers use tablets in the classroom. This fall, Really Good Stuff will help them get the most out of the technology with a category-defining, all-in-one digital supplemental curriculum solution featuring 150+ premium applications mapped to National, State and Common Core standards. Roughly 70%1 of teachers use multiple apps from different resources. Now with Really Good Stuff Digital Learning Collection, teachers will have what they need in one platform that provides access to content across the widest breadth of subjects and allows them to easily find and assign apps to the entire class or individual students to support their learning goals and supplement their lesson plans.

"Over the last 25 years, we've become the go-to resource for educators who trust our products because we invest in development and incorporate teacher feedback to create exactly what they need," said Dipak Golechha, CEO of Excelligence. "With our first digital project, that process is no different. Really Good Stuff Digital Learning Collection provides a solution that gives early elementary teachers exactly what they are asking for."

With sales of Really Good Stuff® products to nearly 75%2 of U.S. elementary schools, and a product development team led by former teachers, Really Good Stuff is well positioned to meet the needs of teachers in today's changing digital landscape.
