SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) April 16, 2013
School Improvement Network, the leader in educator effectiveness resources, today announced they are a finalist in the Utah Innovation Awards 2013 for LumiBook, a highly interactive, cloud-based e-reading platform that allows readers and authors to share and collaborate in online communities to develop ideas and form new content.
With LumiBook, authors can also instantly update their books to incorporate new ideas from reader comments.
“We are honored to have been named as a finalist for the Utah Innovation Awards 2013,” said Chet Linton, president and CEO of School Improvement Network. “We built LumiBook to be the best collaborative e-reader platform for curriculum support, with new functionality including social learning and social media capabilities that enable collaboration with other readers and the book’s author. LumiBook was created specifically for educator resources, but there are endless applications for this platform. In the very near future, we will be releasing mobile apps and building out other functionality that will broaden its impact in the technology sphere and marketplace.”
The Utah Innovation Awards program, presented by Stoel Rives LLP and the Utah Technology Council, is a statewide program designed to recognize innovations and the Utah companies that created them. A committee of experts from the private industry, government and higher education select finalists and winners in each category.
