As every global fan of WordGirl®, Clifford the Big Red Dog® and The Magic School Bus® knows, Scholastic is about more-much more-than learning at school. Since 1978, when it was founded as Scholastic Productions, Scholastic Media has been bringing beloved Scholastic stories and characters to life beyond the printed page via virtually every platform or screen kids access. A leader in the children's entertainment industry, Scholastic Media ranks as one of the foremost producers of quality, family-oriented content for a multitude of platforms, including television, feature films, DVDs, software, apps, video games, and web sites, and is an award-winning licensor and marketer of children's properties worldwide.
Scholastic Media manages and grows Scholastic's global brands through an integrated strategy, including all forms of media and consumer products, and is comprised of four main groups - Productions, Marketing & Consumer Products, Interactive, and Audio. And through its two production studios, Soup2Nuts® and Weston Woods®, delivers cutting–edge animation and beautifully rendered videos to classrooms, libraries, and homes around the world.
As the world's digital landscape continues to evolve, so too does Scholastic Media. The division develops, produces, and distributes critically acclaimed and best-selling interactive and digital content on multiple platforms - including content for Leapster, Leapster2 and Leapster Explorer, LeapFrog's Tag Learning System, Nintendo Wii™ and DS™, as well as apps for iPod touch®, iPhone®, iPad® and Android. Most recently, Scholastic Media developed the software for Storia™, the new children's eReading application launching in 2012.
A host of beloved characters have charmed their way into the hearts of kids across the globe. There's WordGirl®, which has garnered significant critical acclaim (including an Emmy award) and joins the ranks of other acclaimed Scholastic Media television programs that reach, teach and entertain children, including classics like Clifford the Big Red Dog®, the groundbreaking Maya and Miguel™ and The Magic School Bus®, as well as Goosebumps®, Dear America® and I SPY®. Scholastic Media is a true global contender, with programs distributed across the world, in multiple languages. Plus, take a look at qubo, a multi-platform bilingual television network for children that promotes literacy and positive values, which Scholastic launched in collaboration with leading distribution and content providers. Scholastic Media also creates innovative brand marketing initiatives that help drive awareness and sales of our brands while extending them globally through consumer products, consumer promotions, events, PR, webcasts and cause marketing programs – among them the annual WordGirl Definition Competition and Get Goosebumps campaigns - as well as the multi year BE BIG program. Keeping education entertaining—and vice versa—is at the core of Scholastic Media.
"Today's tech-savvy kids demand interactive content to keep them engaged," said Deborah Forte, President of Scholastic Media. "Our mission is to deliver quality media experiences on every platform that enable children and families to engage with the characters and stories they love."
