CoderZ is an online platform teaching students fundamental coding and programming skills through fun virtual robotics

Derry, NH July 2, 2018 -- Intelitek today announced that its online coding and robotics program CoderZ, was named as a Best of Show winner by Tech & Learningat the 2018 International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Conference and Expo.

In its fifth year, Tech & Learning’s ISTE 2018 Best of Show awards highlight outstanding products exhibited at ISTE. Winners are selected by a panel of professional users and editors for having the greatest potential to be game changers in education technology. The judges rated their impressions on a sliding scale, evaluating areas such as quality and effectiveness, ease of use and creative use of technology. They then met in person to decide which technologies will have the most impact in the classroom and deserved to be named Best of Show.


"Once again, the ISTE show floor was inundated with edtech—from the latest in coding, robotics and makerspace gear to sophisticated upgrades in district-wide enterprise assessment software,” said Tech & Learning’s Managing Director of Content, Kevin Hogan. “And once again, our expert panel of judges kicked the tires. It's a yeoman's task and we take it seriously in selecting these companies and their products."

CoderZ is a powerful, easy to use online platform that teaches students in grades 6-12 valuable STEM skills that prepare them for college and careers such as coding, robotics and physical computing. Through a fun interface with virtual robots controlled by the user, students learn a simple, Scratch-like language called Blockly for new coders or start working directly with Java code if they already have coding experience.

Accessible online from the classroom or at home, CoderZ puts the world of coding and robotics in the hands of every student anywhere they have an Internet connection. Students receive immediate feedback for their work with the integrated online simulator, which allows students to test code and experiment with virtual robots.

For educators, CoderZ integratesan engaging curriculum and learning management including project submission and grading, class and student statistics, video tutorials, and more.

“For more than 35 years, Intelitek has been transforming education and bringing STEM programs into classrooms across the globe through comprehensive technology learning solutions,” said Ido Yerushalmi, CEO of Intelitek. “We’re pleased to have been recognized for this award and selected as one of the top products at ISTE this year.”

ISTE 2018 Best of Show winners will be highlighted in the August 2018 issue of Tech & Learning. A full list of winners recognized at ISTE can be found at https://www.techlearning.com/ed-tech-ticker/t-l-announces-iste-best-of-show-winners.
