BOSTON, Nov. 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As education continues shifting towards digital learning, teachers have grown to depend on technology platforms and services to support instruction. Lexia Learning, an award-winning provider of literacy assessment and instructional tools for K-12 students, today announced it has been recognized by THE Journal’s 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards as the most valuable technology provider in K-12 classrooms. Nominated by educators across the U.S., Lexia earned platinum standing, surpassing all other solutions, in the categories of Most Valuable Technology in Schools, Best Reading Program and Best Adaptive/Personalized Learning Tool. Readers also selected Lexia as one of the top three technologies currently used in schools.
For its second annual Readers’ Choice Awards program, THE Journal’s staff invited members of the education community to submit the best products, providers and services in any category of their choosing. More than 1,000 individuals participated in this year’s submission process. According to THE Journal, when readers were asked to name the most valuable technology in their school in an open-ended question, the majority of respondents named Lexia as a top provider.
