BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA (PRWEB) October 03, 2014
LTS Education Systems (http://www.ltseducation.com), a leading publisher of adaptive, digital game-based learning technology, announced today that the Stride Academy™ program for Pre-Kindergarten through High School has been awarded a 2014 Educational Software Review Award (EDDIE) in two categories: Online Multi-Subject Learning Platform and Teacher Productivity Tools.
The prestigious EDDIE awards competition is in its 19th year and recognizes innovative and content-rich software programs for computers, tablets and mobile devices that augment the classroom curriculum and improve teacher productivity. Winning programs are selected based on academic content, subject approach, management system, technical merit, and potential for broad classroom use, among other criteria.
The ComputED Gazette (http://www.computedgazette.com), sponsor of the EDDIE Awards, praised Stride Academy’s approach to differentiated, personalized learning to support all levels of learners: “Designed for PC, Macbook and tablet, Stride Academy provides 24/7 online access to rigorous curriculum and instruction matched to individual skill needs in Math, Reading and Science. The patented adaptive technology automatically creates customized learning plans for students as they practice skills, and diagnoses and repositions students to a level where they can succeed.”
The review panel also applauded the motivational value of Stride Academy’s digital game-based learning methodology: “Games reinforce learning and students are rewarded with points and badges. Graphics are rich and colorful, inviting the student to participate further,” wrote ComputED Gazette.
Additionally, the review panel highlighted Stride Academy’s real-time data reporting feature as “an essential tool for teacher and administrators,” offering customizable and exportable, detailed reports tracking individual student performance, as well as class-level, school-wide, or district-wide performance.
“On behalf of the entire family at LTS Education Systems, we greatly appreciate this high honor and celebrate the achievement by our dedicated team of designers, curriculum experts, support personnel and our renowned Advisory Board,” said Brian M. Shulman, Founder and CEO.
“Being dedicated to helping teachers reach underperforming students to improve academic outcomes, but also committed to continuously challenging their high performing students, we’ve spent over a decade refining our adaptive, personalized approach to learning and our teacher productivity tools. We are very pleased by the overwhelmingly positive response to Stride Academy, and we are excited for our customers to see the new features in store for them in 2014-15,” said Shulman.
