New York, NY (PRWEB) December 06, 2014
News-O-Matic, the daily news app just for kids, has recently earned a Learning Magazine's Teachers' Choice Award for the Classroom, receiving top ratings in two rounds of rigorous judging.
For 20 years, the Learning Magazine Teachers’ Choice SM Awards have heralded the very best in classroom-tested, teacher-recommended products. Each year, its nationwide panel of teacher-judges names the standouts in books, classroom supplies, educational games, software, websites, and more—everything needed for a classroom.
The award judges, all active educators, were given the opportunity to comment about different aspects of the entry, sharing how it was used in their classroom during the judging process and what their students thought. They raved about News-O-Matic:
- “The kids looked forward to it every day!”
- "Would I recommend this product to another teacher? I already have!"
- “It is interactive, colorful, highly engaging for students.”
- “I LOVE this app, and so did my students!”
- “Students will become more aware citizens as a result of using this app.”
- “This app is a perfect addition to any classroom.”
- “…this is a must use app.”
"We're so pleased to have been chosen as a Teachers' Choice recipient this year," commented Lillian Holtzclaw Stern, Press4Kids Founder. "We work hard to present educators with a relevant, up-to-date student-friendly news app that fits seamlessly into the curriculum. It's a thrill to have our work recognized by such a highly regarded program as the Teachers’ Choice Awards."
