Seattle Business Awards Jessie Woolley-Wilson!
Last night at Seattle Business magazine’s annual award gala, our CEO, Jessie Woolley-Wilson, was honored with a 2015 Executive Excellence Award. These awards honor individuals who demonstrate extraordinary leadership in guiding their companies and organizations to success. Jessie’s unyielding determination to change the way the world learns has been relentless, and her strong leadership and vision for DreamBox Learning® has allowed us to help improve student education across the U.S. and Canada.
Under Jessie’s leadership, DreamBox® continues to grow with the changing needs of students across a range of abilities. In response to the increase in adoption rates of tablets, in 2013 DreamBox introduced an app developed for the iPad® to put its Intelligent Adaptive Learning™ program in the hands of the eight million iPad users within the global education arena. DreamBox Learning Math enables teachers to create lesson plans tailored to unique student needs using real-time data from individual student progress. The DreamBox team is constantly innovating to address the needs of each student, which has included expanding the curriculum to add Grades 6–8 and incorporating Spanish language to further support English Language Learners. With direction and passion, Jessie guides DreamBox forward to deliver the best possible learning experience, cultivating lifelong learners and lovers of math.
Jessie is committed to ensuring that every child, no matter where they live or who they are, has access to technology that can transform the way they learn. As an active supporter of technology advancement and educational equality in the classroom, Jessie is speaking at the “EdTech for Educational Inclusion” featured session during SXSWedu in March. This session explores how edtech and adaptive learning tools are transforming learning to reach all students and minimize institutional educational disparity. Panelists, including Christine Johns of Utica Community Schools, Sehreen NoorAli of Noodle, and Teri Rousseau of RRkidz will discuss the connection between new learning technologies and educational inclusion in addition to disruptive strategies to prepare all of today’s students for the future.
