BOSTON – Learning technology company HMH today announced that three of its connected solutions, Amira, Waggle and Writable with HMH Into Literature, have been selected as finalists for this year’s prestigious CODiE Awards. Presented by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the CODiE Awards honor excellence in leading technology products and services, with awards given to products demonstrating innovation, vision and overall industry impact.
“The CODiE Awards continue to represent the best in educational technology and beyond. These nominations speak to HMH’s focus on innovation in creating the most effective solutions to educate students and support teachers,” said Jack Lynch, President and CEO, HMH. “This recognition underscores the value of our connected strategy, and we are honored that the SIIA community has included these solutions on this year’s list.”
Among the HMH products selected as finalists is Amira for “Best Virtual Learning Solution.” Amira, the first-of-its-kind voice AI-based reading tutor for students, is used in school districts across the U.S. It provides 1:1 reading tutoring, reading fluency assessment, and dyslexia risk screening from anywhere to support all forms of learning and can be used with HMH’s Into Reading to connect fluency assessment directly to relevant core literacy content.
Waggle®, a digital, gamified learning solution for grades K-8, is a CODiE finalist in “Best Gamification in Learning.” Waggle goes beyond adaptive learning to provide personalized practice and instruction to support skills-diversity for in-class centers, independent practice, or remote learning. Students engage in rich multimedia experiences and encounter a wide variety of item types that prepare them for high stakes testing and keep them motivated to continue learning.
Digital writing connected solution Writable with HMH Into Literature was selected as a CODiE finalist for “Best Reading/Writing/Literature Instructional Solution for Grade 9 – 12.” Writable with HMH Into Literature delivers leveled questions to support close reading and analysis of text, with the scaffolding that students need.
