SIIA announces education finalists for 2013 CODiE’s

codies2013In other SIAA news, the association has announced the 148 finalists in Education categories for the 2013 SIIA CODiE Awards,the industry’s only peer-reviewed awards program. The finalists represent applications, products and services from developers of educational software, digital content, online learning services, and related technologies across the K-20 sector.  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.

“We’re pleased with the innovative educational technology products that made it to this stage. All of this year’s finalists show great promise, and they should be proud of their finalist status,” said Karen Billings, vice president of the SIIA Education Division in a prepared statement. “I look forward to seeing them all in May at the Ed Tech Industry Summit.”

Winners will be announced during a special awards dinner at the nation’s leading education technology conference, the Ed Tech Industry Summit, in San Francisco on May 6.

Check out the finalists below. Further information on each finalist can be found here.
