Over the past decade, Pearson has undergone a digital transformation that mirrors what schools around the world have experienced. We have changed from a traditional print publishing company to a leader in the development of digital learning solutions that personalize learning, transform instruction and enable educators to leverage technology to make all types of critical educational decisions while creating a connected and collaborative learning community.
Our company’s involvement with the SIIA CODiE Awards has provided us with valuable feedback during this evolution. The program’s pool of expert judges has provided us with new and insightful perspectives on our learning solutions that have helped inform both our positioning and future developments.
Proudly with nine CODiE winners and 72 finalists over just the past five years, Pearson has had much to celebrate as a result of SIIA’s prestigious awards program. Our finalists and winners illustrate the depth and breadth of our offerings from adaptive learning programs for higher education and online professional development solutions for K-12 educators to student information systems and mobile learning solutions. And, while each product proudly displays the prestigious CODiE Award seal, our greatest pride is in being able to participate in this industry-wide program, celebrating the best-of-the-best with other education technology innovators from around the world.
It is an exciting time to be in education. SIIA’s CODiE awards are the perfect showcase for all of the amazing developments in the field of education. With the kick-off of the 2015 CODiE Award nominations, we look forward to another terrific year of competing – and collaborating – with our colleagues in this industry as we strive to develop solutions that will improve learning outcomes for all students.
