DreamBox Learning® Math Wins a 2015 CODiE Award for Best PK-12 Personalized Learning Solution!
Delivering over a million personalized math lessons to elementary and middle school students across the U.S. and Canada is making a difference—and is also being recognized by education leaders.
At the Education Industry Summit special awards reception and dinner in San Francisco on May 5, 2015, DreamBox Learning Math was honored as the Best PK-12 Personalized Learning Solution. We’re committed to providing a personalized learning experience to ensure that students at every learning level have the opportunity to meet their full potential. That’s why we’re dedicated to continuous innovation, like our new middle school content and providing every lesson in Spanish.
We’re humbled and excited by this SIIA CODiE Award.
Recognition for our continuous innovation in education comes from The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), which governs the CODiE awards, is the principal trade association for software and digital content industries. The CODiE Awards are the only peer-recognized program in the content, education, and software industries, so winning serves as a deep market validation for a product’s innovation, vision, and overall industry impact. All education technology nominated products and services were first reviewed by a group of tech-savvy educators from across the nation, whose evaluations determined 82 finalists. SIIA members then reviewed these finalists and voted to select 28 CODiE winners by category, company, and product/service.
Being a CODIE winner again means so much to all of us at DreamBox Learning.
It signifies that education leaders recognize our commitment to a deeply personalized learning experience that supports all children to succeed. We love partnering with educators to help students become unstoppable mathematicians, and appreciate all of your support. Thank you!
