SIIA Announces Education Technology Finalists for 2018 CODiE Awards

152 education technology and service products recognized in peer-reviewed awards program 

WASHINGTON (May 3, 2018) – The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, announces the 152 finalists in education technology categories for the 2018 SIIA CODiE Awards. These finalists represent applications and products from educational software developers, digital content, online learning services and related technologies across the PreK-20 sector.

This year's program features 39 education technology categories, several of which are new or updated to reflect the latest industry trends. Winners will be announced during a CODiE Award Celebration at the SIIA Annual Conference & CODiE Awards in San Francisco on June 13.

“I am impressed by the level of innovation and creativity demonstrated by the 2018 CODiE award finalists. These products are opening doors for learners of all ages by developing and utilizing new technologies to respond to student and educator needs.” said Ken Wasch, President of SIIA.

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