Unique Web-based Learning System with Online Live Tutoring Recognized for Excellence
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (April 7, 2016) —— Think Through Learning announced today that Think Through Math (TTM), their web-based instruction system for grades 3 and above, has been named a finalist in the 2016 Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) CODiE Awards, the premier awards for the software and information industries. Think Through Math has been recognized in the Best Math Instructional Solution category, which includes managed classroom/course-based instruction or online supplemental instruction for students so they can learn and apply mathematics concepts and methods. Think Through Math previously won the SIIA CODiE Award in this category in both 2012 and 2014.
Contenders in the Best Math Instructional Solution category are evaluated on their ability to offer deep and personalized learning experiences for students, support standards alignment and reflect current curriculum practice. Think Through Math’s adaptive learning solution focuses on the higher order thinking and problem-solving skills required for success on the more rigorous standards and assessments being implemented across the country. The program integrates the Quantile® Framework from MetaMetrics® to accurately measure student math proficiency and track progress throughout the year. Think Through Math personalizes the instruction for each student based on their specific performance and incorporates the unique aspect of offering struggling students live one-to-one support from bi-lingual certified math teachers from directly within a lesson – before during and after the school day.
“We are honored to be a finalist for this most prestigious award,” said Kevin McAliley, CEO of Think Through Learning, “We are pleased that our on-going commitment to technical innovation to drive proven gains in student achievement has been recognized again by the educators who evaluated Think Through Math as part of this process. We are particularly grateful for the time the evaluators spent reviewing our program in detail, since we know the judges are volunteers who have full time jobs as teachers or administrators and the CODiE review process is a very significant investment of their time.”
In addition to being named a finalist in the 2016 SIIA CODiE Awards, Think Through Math has also been recognized in the past year with the 2015 Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence, 2015 District Administration Readers’ Choice Top 100 Products, 2015 EDDIE Award: Best Multi-level Online Math Learning System and 2015 Best Educational Software Awards (BESSIE Award).
