Flocabulary and Clever Announce Partnership
[Brooklyn, NY] – September 13, 2017 – Today, education technology companies Flocabulary and Clever announce the launch of a partnership to simplify and secure online learning for today’s students.
Flocabulary is a learning program for all grades that uses hip-hop to engage students and increase achievement across the curriculum through an emphasis on vocabulary building. The company has forged a partnership with Clever to improve its classroom access and on-boarding experience.
“Seamless access, rostering and onboarding has become paramount to Flocabulary’s success as we’ve added depth to our student experience,” says Flocabulary Co-Founder and CEO Alex Rappaport. “Clever has enabled us to reduce friction and, most importantly, save educators precious setup time that can be better spent teaching.”
Schools and apps connect on Clever’s web-based platform to put next-generation software in the hands of students, helping teachers reclaim valuable learning time in classrooms. Half of U.S. K-12 schools and more than 300 apps connect on Clever to automate data integrations with online learning apps and simplify the login process for students and teachers.
“Clever is thrilled to partner with Flocabulary to provide students with exciting and engaging content” said Roli Saxena, Vice President of sales and customer success at Clever. “Together, Flocabulary and Clever allow teachers and students to focus on learning and less time on setup and logins.”
Flocabulary is a learning program for all grades that uses educational hip-hop music to engage students and increase achievement across the curriculum. Teachers at 20,000 schools use Flocabulary’s standards-based videos, instructional activities and student creativity tools to supplement instruction and develop core literacy skills.

Clever was founded in 2012 by educators and technologists who knew that widely available educational apps could improve both teaching and learning, but that tools to deploy and secure the applications were simply unavailable. Today, half of K-12 schools in the U.S. trust Clever to secure their student data as they adopt learning apps in the classroom. In 2014, Clever won the ‘Crystal Clear’ award by the Digital Innovation Learning Awards. It is also the trusted provider of the American Federation of Teachers, who uses Clever to secure its own ‘Share my Lesson’ platform with its teacher members. Backed by Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Partners, Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund, and GSV Capital, Clever currently has 100 employees and is based in San Francisco, California.
