SIIA Announces Education Finalists for 2016 CODiE Awards
160 education technology and service products recognized in peer-reviewed awards program

WASHINGTON (April 6, 2016) – The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, announces the 160 finalists in education categories for the 2016 SIIA CODiE Awards. These finalists represent applications, products and services from developers of educational software, digital content, online learning services and related technologies across the PreK-20 sector.

This year's program features 29 education technology categories, several of which are new or updated to reflect the latest industry trends and business models. Winners will be announced during a virtual CODiE Award Winner Ceremony on May 18. There will also be an all new CODiE Award Celebration Dinner and Party on July 26 at the Education Industry Symposium in Denver. A la carte tickets are now available.

Every year the list of CODIE finalists is a case study of how the ed tech industry is using new technologies in combination with knowledge about how people learn to respond to customer needs. They’re opening doors for learners of all ages.said Karen Billings, vice president and managing director of ETIN.

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program. Educators and administrators conduct the first-round review of all education nominees. The judges are responsible for selecting the CODiE Awards finalists, and SIIA members then vote on the finalist products. The scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.

Details about each finalist are listed at http://www.siia.net/codie/Finalists
