Every year the ComputeED Best Educational Software Awards (BESSIES) honors education providers who develop innovative and content-rich curriculum to provide schools and districts with technology to foster educational excellence. The judges evaluate curriculum based on academic content, technical merit, subject approach and management systems.
ComputED BESSIE Awards
This year, Apex Learning Technology Courses were recognized for the suite of project-based technology courses that teach essential 21st-century computer animation skills to middle and high school students. According to a review from the judges, “The courses are dynamic and engaging, with video lessons led by real-life, techy, eccentric young men who guide students through the comprehensive, carefully scaffolded units: Sean, Sam and Aaron mimic the high-spirited environment and blend with the pulsating digital music, images, and backgrounds that add authenticity to the programming software being learned!”
The review notes the instructional design of the Technology Courses enables districts to offer the courses without requiring teachers to have technical expertise with industry standard publishing tools, and the courses may be implemented without familiarity with the subject-matter.
Apex Learning Middle School Tutorials for Social Studies and Science were also selected for helping middle school students use personalized learning to meet grade-level expectations and build a solid foundation for success in high school.
Apex Learning was also recently honored by the EdTech Awards, which according to the publisher, is the largest and most competitive recognition program in all of education technology.
