2022 Learning Impact Awards Celebrate Transformative Solutions for K-12, Higher Education, and Lifelong Learning
LAKE MARY, Fla., June 9, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- 1EdTech™, the world-leading non-profit collaborative advancing edtech and learning impact, announced the nine winning projects in the Learning Impact Awards 2022 competition. The two Platinum Award winners were recognized for an innovative solution to combat COVID learning loss over the summer months and a teaching platform that allows institutions of higher education to share high-quality images as interactive and engaging learning tools.
The 1EdTech Learning Impact Awards recognize high-impact, evidence-based digital learning solutions and strategies implemented in an educational setting to elevate learning experiences and impact. A panel of institutional leaders—who observe and evaluate the project presentations—and the edtech community-at-large vote for the winners. From the 34 finalists in this year's competition, expert judges and public voters selected those demonstrating the most significant impact on personalized learning, institutional performance, and the digital learning ecosystem.
This year's Platinum Award winners include Gwinnett County Public Schools, the 13th largest school district in the U.S., which teamed up with Classworks to mitigate learning loss and unfinished learning precipitated by COVID and prepare students for the upcoming school year. They created a customized, online Summer Enrichment and Acceleration (SEA) program that leveraged 1EdTech's Competency and Academic Standards Exchange® (CASE®) framework to provide superior standards-based learning experiences for all students.

The other Platinum Award-winning project came from OpenLearning and the Biomedical Education Skills and Training (BEST) Network. Their online image-based teaching platform allows institutions to share large, high-quality images and knowledge, providing cost-effective and equitable access to biomedical images and tools worldwide. The non-profit BEST Network brought together academics from leading medical schools to address this critical need in biomedical and life science education.
