Two Lexia Learning Products Honored in the 2018 Tech Edvocate Awards
Lexia Core5 Reading Named Best Literacy Tool/App while Lexia PowerUp Literacy honored as a Finalist in Best Personalized/Adaptive Learning Tool Category
BOSTON (Sept. 13, 2018) – Lexia Learning today announced that its personalized literacy programs Lexia® Core5® Reading (Core5) and Lexia PowerUp Literacy™ (PowerUp) were both honored in the 2018 Tech Edvocate awards. The Tech Edvocate awards recognize outstanding products in the edtech industry that are focused on advocating for students by catering to identified classroom and learning needs.
Lexia Core5 Reading was named the winner in the category for Best Literacy App or Tool. Core5 is a research-proven, technology-based program that accelerates the development of fundamental literacy skills for students of all abilities in grades pre-K–5. Core5 provides explicit, systematic instruction through personalized learning paths in six areas of reading. The program seamlessly adapts with student performance, targeting skill gaps as they emerge, and equipping teachers with the data and instructional resources they need to personalize instruction for every student. The online student dashboard encourages students to set goals and take ownership of their learning.
Lexia PowerUp Literacy was recognized as a finalist in the category of Best Personalized/Adaptive Learning App or Tool. PowerUp is designed to enhance core English language arts instruction for non-proficient readers in grades 6 and above. Blending online student-driven instruction with offline teacher-delivered lessons and activities, PowerUp accelerates the development of both fundamental literacy skills and higher-order thinking skills through adaptive learning paths. It addresses the instructional needs of a wide range of students, from struggling to nearly proficient readers, by identifying skill gaps and providing personalized, systematic instruction.
Winners and finalists were selected by a panel of educators and K-12 parents who reviewed the submissions and judged the products and services based on the extent to which they are transforming education through the development or advocacy of edtech. The judges also took the results of a popular vote into consideration for the finalist selection process.
“We’re proud to have both Core5 and PowerUp recognized as robust technology-based products that are personalizing literacy instruction for elementary and secondary students, alike,” said Lexia President Nick Gaehde. “For more than 30 years, we have been committed to ensuring that our products improve learning outcomes for all students and that will continue long into the future.”
