Sokikom, the massively multiplayer online math social learning game, is the winner of three prestigious education awards. Only six months after its launch, the already award-winning company is the winner of two coveted annual Education Software Review (EDDIE) Awards from ComputED Gazette and a "Cool Tools" Award in EdTech Digest's inaugural awards program.

"Every week, classroom teachers tell us our online games are incredibly valuable instructional tools that help their students have fun while building the math skills they need to excel in school, so we are thrilled that independent reviewers who see hundreds of products each year think that Sokikom is the best of the best, too."
Other 2011 awards for the math social learning game included the 2011 Awards of Excellence from Tech & Learning magazine, an Association of Educational Publishers’ Distinguished Achievement Award, a Best Educational Software Award (BESSIE) from ComputED Gazette and inclusion on Dr. Toy’s list of Best Vacation Children’s Products.
