ABC-CLIO Solutions Wins 2014 Tech & Learning Award of Excellence

Developer honored for digital curriculum resource Modern Genocide: Understanding Causes and Consequences

Santa Barbara, Calif. (Dec. 11, 2014) – ABC-CLIO Solutions, an award-winning digital curriculum resource, is a recipient of a Tech & Learning 2014 Award of Excellence. The Modern Genocide: Understanding Causes and Consequences database was a winner in the New Product category and recognized as an outstanding education technology product that adds significant enhancements within an educational environment.

“This award highlights our continued dedication to giving students and teachers the best resources possible to explore critical historical moments,” said Becky Snyder, ABC-CLIO President. “Genocide is a complex subject to teach in a classroom, but by presenting a variety of authoritative perspectives with ABC-CLIO solutions, educators can help students develop thinking skills essential for college and career readiness.”

Modern Genocide: Understanding Causes and Consequences serves as a full, rich, and comprehensive resource. Its contents are vetted by a group of well-known, prominent individuals who make up its advisory board, ensuring definitive expertise on the sensitive and hard-to-teach topic of genocide. Users have access to in-depth coverage of the ten most significant genocides in modern history and many other features that guide students and teachers through this sensitive material. This database helps foster reflective discussions and assignments while meeting the academic curriculum and high scholarly standards in many history and social studies courses.

“Once again this year our judges had the pleasurable duty to evaluate more than 150 edtech products,” said Tech & Learning Content Director Kevin Hogan. “Each is put through the proverbial wringer: How well does it work in the classroom environment? How easy is it for students and teachers to use? And, most importantly, how effective is it in improving learning? Not a simple task. Congratulations to all of the winners.”

Tech & Learning, a leading online education publication serving the K—12 education community as a resource for education technology, sponsors the Award of Excellence program and is in its 32nd year. The program honors hardware, software, network, and web products that make significant enhancements to educational environments and tools.
