DreamBox Named Best Mathematics Instructional Solution

For the 5th year, DreamBox has been recognized by educators, administrators, and the SIIA

The CODiE Award is the only peer-recognized program in the Education Technology industry. The nominated products are evaluated by educators and administrators to be chosen as a finalist. Then, members of the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, cast their votes. Last week, the SIIA announced the winners for 2018 and we’re excited to share the news that DreamBox took top honors as Best Mathematics Instructional Solution.

It is not the first time that we have been recognized by our peers through a CODiE award. DreamBox earned the title of Best PK–12 Personalized Learning Solution in 2013 and again in 2015. Prior to that, we were happy to be acknowledged as a finalist in multiple categories two years in a row. These accolades mean so much to us. It feels wonderful to be recognized by peer educators for our continued commitment to mathematics education.

The fact that DreamBox has been on SIIA’s radar for nearly a decade and continues to score high with evaluators and educators alike is testimony to the effort, research, and creativity of our teachers, development teams, and everyone at DreamBox. We are continually iterating and innovating using the thoughtful and insightful feedback from our students and educators. We are constantly listening to those who are willing to share their voices with us, as DreamBox cares deeply about creating solutions that bring the most value to our users. Just this month, DreamBox added a new feature to enable teachers to utilize the power of DreamBox Learning’s unique and effective learning pathways by entering targeted  NWEA MAP® Growth™ results to create differentiated assignments for individual students.

DreamBox is humbled and honored to win this award, but we are even more proud of how our students have grown and changed the way they think about math. And since DreamBox is constantly improving through user feedback, every administrator, teacher, parent, and student who uses DreamBox deserves a heartfelt high-five today. So, thank you for helping us put kids and educators first, so we can radically transform the way the world learns.
