and a Finalist for Three SIIA CODiE Awards

BELLEVUE, Wash., March 20, 2013 – DreamBox Learning® (www.dreambox.com), the leading Intelligent Adaptive Learning™ company, today announced that it has received a 2013 “ON for Learning” Award from Common Sense Media, the national non-profit dedicated to helping parents and teachers manage the media and technology in kids’ lives. The awards celebrate the best in kids’ digital media products designed to educate and engage. DreamBox Learning Math was chosen because it earned a high learning rating from Common Sense Media; the rating signals its potential for helping equip students with the skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. The full rating and review is available here: DreamBox Learning Math.

“Our learning ratings are the most comprehensive tool parents have to distinguish the digital media products that are truly educational from those that simply claim to be,” said Seeta Pai, architect of the Common Sense Media learning ratings initiative. “The ON for Learning Award recipients have set themselves apart from the pack. We congratulate DreamBox Learning for receiving this award and for creating a terrific intelligent adaptive learning math program that helps kids learn and have fun, too.”

In addition to the prestigious Common Sense Media honor, DreamBox Learning Math was just named a finalist for three SIIA CODiE Awards: Best Mathematics Instructional Solution, Best Education Game or Simulation and Best PK-12 Personalized Learning Solution. DreamBox Learning also received a “Hottest Company in Seattle” award by Lead411 earlier this week.
