DALLAS, May 13, 2020 — Voyager Sopris Learning's LETRS has been selected as the winner of the "Professional Development Learning Solution" award in The EdTech Awards 2020 from EdTech Digest. LETRS, Voyager Sopris Learning's landmark professional learning series on the science of reading, was one of 20 finalists named from the category and was subsequently singled out as the overall winner.
In addition, the company's LANGUAGE! Live was a finalist in the "Literacy/Reading Solution" category. LANGUAGE! Live is a literacy curriculum proven to help struggling readers and writers achieve grade-level reading expectations and has been proven effective with a wide range of student populations.
Voyager Sopris Learning is a division of Cambium Learning Group, Inc. Both companies are based in Dallas.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary, The EdTech Awards are the largest recognition program in all of education technology. Featuring the industry's best and brightest, the annual program shines a spotlight on Cool Tools—where LETRS and LANGUAGE! Live were featured as nominees—and also recognizes top Leaders and Trendsetters. Organizers announced all winners and finalists on Wednesday (May 6).
"To those who stepped up and continue to do so—empathic educators, persistent parents, laudable leaders moving learning forward, especially in these times—we salute you," said Victor Rivero, Editor-in-Chief, EdTech Digest. "Your tireless efforts awaken others to the resoluteness and goodness of the human spirit."
According to John Campbell, CEO of Cambium Learning, "The EdTech Awards have steadily grown in prominence in its 10 years of existence, and the judges' recognition of both LETRS and LANGUAGE! Live confirms what we have long believed about these two game-changing programs. We are especially gratified to know that LETRS stood out in what was clearly a large and highly competitive professional learning category."
