March 3, 2008 | By Leigh Alexander

Computer-based learning company Plato has announced it will launch educational gaming software for Sony's PSP beginning in April of 2008 with its Achieve Now line of products, comprising 57 different games.

The company says the games are designed to support elementary and middle school students improve academic proficiency in areas such as language arts, reading and mathematics.

According to Plato, Achieve Now provides more than 2,000 hours of content aligned to all 50 states' educational standards, aimed to integrate with kids' existing programs of study.

Plato VP of product and market management Todd Brekhus said, "The concept of education lessons through games is quickly gaining traction with parents and teachers as a new way to reach today’s student. Interactive gaming helps build valuable problem-solving skills through play, and Plato Achieve Now helps harness those skills by adding rigorous academic content to the gaming experience—better than a boring worksheet.”
