SIIA Announces Education Finalists for 2014 CODiE Awards

146 Education Technology and Service Products Recognized in Peer-Reviewed Awards Program

WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 31, 2014) – The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, today announced the 146 finalists in Education categories for the 2014 SIIA CODiE Awards. These finalists represent applications, products, and services from developers of educational software, digital content, online learning services, and related technologies across the K-20 sector.

This year’s program features 31 Education categories, several of which are new or updated to reflect the latest industry trends and business models. Winners will be announced during a special awards dinner at the nation’s leading education technology conference, the Education Industry Summit, in San Francisco on May 12.

“This year’s finalists are breaking ground with new business models and innovative products. We are pleased to recognize the best in educational technology with these 119 products,” said Karen Billings, vice president of the SIIA Education Division. “I look forward to honouring them all in May at the Education Industry Summit.”

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program. Educators and administrators conduct the first-round review of all education nominees. The judges are responsible for selecting the CODiE Awards finalists, and SIIA members then vote on the finalist products. The scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.

Details about each finalist are listed at siia.net/codies/2014/finalists.asp. For more information on the Education Industry Summit, attending the CODiE Awards dinner, and to see a full schedule of events, visit siia.net/etis.
