CODiE finalists represent the best products, services, and people in the education and business technology industries.
“It is a great honor to have our products selected as finalists for CODiE Awards,” said Sari Factor, Vice Chair and Chief Strategy Officer for Imagine Learning. “The CODiE Awards have long been the gold standard for recognizing excellence in education technology and we’re excited that our industry peers have identified Imagine Language & Literacy, Imagine Learning Twig Science, and Imagine Robotify as leaders in English language learning, science education, and coding and virtual instruction.”
Imagine Learning CODiE finalists include:
Imagine Language & Literacy won “Best Foundational English Language Arts Instructional Solution” in 2021. It is the only personalized learning program that accelerates both literacy skills and English language development for students in grades PreK-6. Designed to supplement core literacy instruction, Imagine Language & Literacy provides instruction and practice in all four domains of literacy—reading, writing, listening, and speaking. As students explore and practice skills, their individualized learning sequence adjusts dynamically to maximize their engagement and progress, accelerating to match a cognitive leap, or adjusting to accommodate unfinished learning.
Imagine Twig Science provides comprehensive coverage of science standards through engaging hands-on and digital investigations in which PreK-8 students take on the roles of real-world scientists and engineers. The program was created from the ground up for the Next Generation Science Standards and ensures that all students have an interwoven understanding of Science and Engineering Practices (SEPs), Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs), and Crosscutting Concepts (CCCs). The unique instructional design challenges students to become creative problem solvers, making sense of engaging, real-world phenomena.
Imagine Robotify is a browser-based digital solution designed to teach coding using the world’s best computer science simulator. The platform offers students the freedom and creativity they need to realize their original ideas and, in the process, develop their capacity for critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration. Imagine Robotify provides students with the ability to master coding skills and apply their critical thinking to robotics, math, science, and coding skills through project- and game-based learning. Students have access to more than 1,000 different coding activities and games, including 24/7 access to the latest and greatest virtual robots without having to ever purchase real hardware.
