Edgenuity, a leading provider of online curriculum and instructional services for the K-12 market, announced today that its supplemental learning solution UpSmart™ was named Best of Show at Tech & Learning’s sixth annual ISTE conference. The ISTE Best of Show Awards honor outstanding technology products exhibited at the ISTE conference, as selected by an anonymous panel of educator judges on the basis of quality and effectiveness, ease of use, cost and creative use of technology.
UpSmart is a fully customizable solution that personalizes the learning environment for each individual student while providing teachers with real-time data to adapt their curriculum to student skills and needs. By combining assessment, instruction and practice, the program helps students in grades 6-8 demonstrate mastery of state standards in English language arts and math.
“We are delighted that UpSmart has been recognized for the extraordinary education technology solution that it is,” said Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity. “UpSmart is helping students master important concepts while providing teachers with the real-time data to coach and guide their students to success.”
UpSmart may be used as a companion to a core curriculum or to ensure students have mastered critical grade-level skills and standards. As a flexible solution, UpSmart can be used in a variety of settings — as part of a classroom-based blended learning program, in an advisory period or study skills class, or as homework. Additionally, UpSmart’s reporting feature allows for better teacher understanding of student growth and highlights where students have mastered the appropriate skills and standards, as well as where they may be struggling.
UpSmart was recently awarded a CODiE award for ‘Best Cross-Curricular Solution’ and was a winner in ComputED’s 24th Annual Best Educational Software Awards. UpSmart was also named a 2018 finalist for EdTech Digest’s Cool Tool Award.
