The new awards program recognizes outstanding teams and individuals for their accomplishments, leadership and commitment to the industry.
The CODiE Awards are the only peer-reviewed awards of their kind and, for over 30 years, have recognized thousands of software, information and education technology companies for achieving excellence in products and services. The all-new 2016 Company CODiE Awards winner in the Best Product Team of the Year category is the Burlington, Massachusetts-based, EvoText, Inc.
EvoText, Inc., a company that provides educational software and promotes personalized learning, recently earned approval from the Planning Board to locate its business at the historical Kent Cottage on Network Drive, off Middlesex Turnpike, in the Northwest Park Planned Development District.

As an English teacher in Oklahoma's Moore Public Schools, I was recruited by some textbook providers to help them create content. It was a lot of fun, and I was happy to make some extra money doing it. But there are so many teachers in our district who are much more talented than I am. If I was developing curriculum materials that school systems across the nation were purchasing, they certainly could be doing this, too.
Ogment by EvoText has been selected as the most innovative supplemental education resource in the 2016 REVERE Awards.

When a technology solution really solves a pressing need, those solutions tend to win awards. This is what happened last week when the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA) announced that Ogment had won a coveted CODiE Award for exceptional education technology products bringing real solutions to schools.
Johanna Wetmore is having a very good spring. In April, her company’s product, Ogment, won three BESSIE Awards for education technology teacher tools.
