Boston, MA – Nov. 10, 2014 — itslearning (www.itslearning.net), a leading K-12 digital learning management platform, today announced that its solution of the same name, has been chosen as ‘Best Upgraded Product’ in Tech & Learning magazine’s 32nd annual Awards of Excellence program. This marks the second award for the personalized learning platform this year.  Previously, itslearning was honored with a coveted 2014 CODiE award from the Software & Information Industry Association as the Best PK-12 Personalized Learning Solution.  Earlier this year, the American Association of Publishers recognized itslearning as a Revere Award finalist in the innovation category.

 

This year’s Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence program honored new and upgraded software, hardware, network, and Web products. A panel of more than 30 educators tested more than 150 entries and chose the winners.

 

“It’s so gratifying to have this panel of distinguished judges recognize the vision, hard work, and passion that our organization has put into building a learning platform designed with teachers and students in mind that is making engagement, collaboration and personalized learning a reality for students’ everyday learning experiences,” said Travis Willard, itslearning CEO. "The award is especially important for us because we know that schools and districts are constantly searching for ways to provide teachers and students with a better way to learn, and that is what we strive to do every day.”

 

Designed specifically for the K-12 sector, itslearning is a leading, cloud-based learning management system (LMS) with more than 4 million educators, students, and parents worldwide using the personalized learning platform.  itslearning is widely recognized for enabling teachers to more effectively engage today’s “digitally wired” students anytime, anywhere and on any device. The platform enables student voice and choice, facilitating collaboration and self-reflection through blogs, individualized learning plans, communities and ePortfolios. In addition, itslearning fosters student content creation and peer analysis, extending the role of the student far beyond that of a traditional “consumer.”  The media-rich learning platform’s seamless integration with existing school and district systems creates a user-friendly interface that gives teachers a way to share instructional resources, assignments and activities, and assessments with students and parents via personalized dashboards.

 

At the same time, students have the power to decide how they learn as the solution automatically adapts to support learning styles that offer the best opportunities for success. A proprietary ‘standards mastery and recommendation engine facilitates remediation, acceleration and review by automating the recommendation of resources and activities based upon standards mastery assessments. The recommendations are also tailored specifically to the individual learning styles of each student – regardless of age, ability level, interests or special requirements.
