Lakewood, NJ (PRWEB) April 04, 2014
Achieve3000® is a finalist in the 2014 Software & Information Industry (SIIA) CODiE Awards in category of Best PK-12 Personalized Learning Solution. Established in 1986, the CODiE Awards celebrate outstanding achievement across the software, digital information and education technology industries. This year, nominated ed-tech products underwent an intensive review by educator judges from around the world.
Achieve3000 online literacy solutions for grades 2-12 reach all students one-on-one at their individual reading levels, accelerating reading gains by as much as twice the expected rates, boosting mastery of Common Core Standards and performance on high-stakes tests, and preparing them for college and career. With Achieve3000, differentiation is built in, so the whole class is exposed to the same content-area topic in English and Spanish, but text and activities are auto-adjusted to each student's current reading level. Real-time monitoring and reporting make it easy to track student progress.
Earlier this year, the company launched the Achieve3000 App for iPad®, taking differentiated instruction to the next level, allowing students to build literacy skills anytime, anywhere.
“As schools around the country strive to meet today’s more rigorous learning goals, differentiated instruction is the key to student achievement,” said Saki Dodelson, Founder and CEO, Achieve3000. “It is an honor to have Achieve3000 recognized by SIIA in this important award category.”
The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program. Educators and administrators conduct the first-round review of all education nominees. The judges are responsible for selecting the CODiE Awards finalists, and SIIA members then vote on the finalist products. The scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.
The 2014 CODiE Award winners will be announced at the 2014 Ed Tech Industry Summit in San Francisco on May 13.
