May 14, 2019

Lakewood, NJ, May 8, 2019 – Achieve3000 today announced that Actively Learn was named a 2019 SIIA CODiE Award finalist in the Best Reading/Writing/Literature Instructional Solution for Grades 9-12 & Higher Education category. Award finalists represent applications, products, and services from developers of educational software, digital content, online learning services, and related technologies across the PreK-20 sector.

Actively Learn is a digital curriculum platform that drives deeper learning in English language arts, science, and social studies for grades 6-12 by offering a digital library of boundless content, authentic student engagement, and opportunities for teacher growth.

“For too many, reading simply is not as educational and rewarding as it should be,” said Jay Goyal, President of Actively Learn, “which is why we set out to reinvent reading so that students deeply understand what they read, build connections between texts, and actively construct knowledge.” 

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier awards for the software and information industries and have recognized product excellence for more than 30 years. The awards offer 76 categories that are organized by industry focus of education technology and business technology. Actively Learn was honored as one of 139 finalists across the 32 education technology categories.

“The 2019 CODIE Award finalists represent the finest in innovation and creativity in educational technology,” said President Jeff Joseph at SIIA. “These breakthrough products are opening doors for learners of all ages by developing and utilizing new technologies to respond to diverse student and educator needs.”

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry’s only peer-reviewed awards program. Educators and administrators serve as judges and conduct the first-round review of all education nominees. Their scores determine the SIIA CODiE Award finalists, and SIIA members then vote on the finalist products. The scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.

Winners will be announced during a CODiE Award Celebration at the Ed Tech Industry Conference & CODiE Awards in San Francisco on June 11.
