SpringBoard Digital Wins Best Education Cloud-based Solution
BURLINGTON, Mass.--The College Board’s SpringBoard Digital 6-12 has won a coveted CODiE Award for Best Education Cloud-based Solution, given by the Software Information and Industry Association (SIIA) to recognize exemplary education technology for K-12 and higher education. EvoText designed and developed the SpringBoard interactive digital platform with the College Board.
“We congratulate all of this year’s CODiE Award winners, and thank them for the contributions they have made to the education industry.”
The EvoText team, in collaboration with SpringBoard, reinvented the print version of SpringBoard into a highly interactive digital platform for middle and high school language arts and mathematics. Added features include a lesson planner, digital notebook, student portfolio and grading assistant to support the cutting-edge digital ebooks. The ebooks include point of use standards alignments, digital sticky notes and metacognitive markers, enhanced test item types and math learning tools.
The CODiEs are considered to be the education technology industry’s premier awards, honoring the leading products in K-12 and higher education. “SIIA’s 2015 Education CODiE Award winners are some of the most innovative, high-impact education products out there,” said Karen Billings, vice president of the SIIA Education Technology Industry Network. “We congratulate all of this year’s CODiE Award winners, and thank them for the contributions they have made to the education industry.”
