NEW YORK, NY – Sept. 29, 2015 – Waggle for English language arts from Triumph Learning, producer of critically acclaimed K-12 texts and interactive digital tools, earns the 2016 Teachers’ Choice Award in the classroom category. Presented by Learning Magazine since 1994, the prestigious awards selected 30 winners based on scores from the evaluations done by a panel of teachers across the country.
“Teachers’ Choice is the only awards program that is exclusively judged by teachers in the classroom,” said Heather Crews, awards coordinator at Learning Magazine. “Waggle receiving this award is a testament to its impact on student learning.”
Waggle is a personalized, online learning program focused on practice that is designed to help students conquer skills and achieve success beyond the test. Using true personalization, Waggle meets students where they are along the learning path in English language arts or math and promotes productive struggle. When Waggle facilitates productive struggle, students become more self-directed and empowered to take ownership over their own learning.
“Triumph Learning is honored to receive this recognition from teachers who are as dedicated as we are to guiding students along their own personalized learning paths,” said Aoife Dempsey, CTO at Triumph Learning. “Waggle was designed to provide students with a safe and positive atmosphere to explore tasks beyond their reach with guidance and encouragement from their teachers.”
A team of teachers evaluated Waggle on quality, instructional value, ease of use and innovation. Only products that meet the educators’ stringent standards are chosen to receive a Teachers’ Choice Award.
