SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (PRWEB) November 05, 2019
On July 31, 2019, The Tech Edvocate named Learning Explorer a finalist of the 2019 Tech Edvocate Awards in the category for “Best Lesson Planning App or Tool.” The award recognizes the strength and application of the app as well as the implementation and popularity of it in K-12 classrooms.
“We are so proud of the work our team has put into making Learning Explorer such an impactful solution for resource discovery and lesson planning. Our team of teachers and developers are dedicated to helping educators save time and streamline the process of finding, managing and implementing their curriculum,” says Jim Hurley, CEO & Founder of Lesson Planet.
Learning Explorer, designed specifically for schools and districts, is a learning resource repository and curriculum management platform that seamlessly integrates teacher-curated, open educational resources (OER) with district-created content and district-licensed publisher content… making it an all-in-one solution for discovering and organizing standards-aligned learning resources.
About the 2019 Tech Edvocate Awards: The Edvocate solicited nominees from readers in June/July and held online voting from May 1, 2019 – July 31, 2019. The nominee’s performance during the online voting period was used to gauge their popularity, but in no way signaled that they would become a finalist or walk away with an award. The finalists and winners were ultimately selected by a panel comprised of two edtech thought leaders, two PreK-12 teachers, one college professor, two K-12 administrators, one college administrator, and two PreK-12 parents.
