Tech4Learning is pleased to announce that Wixie has been honored with a 2019 Academics’ Choice Smart Media Award, a prestigious seal of educational quality, reserved only for the best mind-building media and toys. The independent Academics’ Choice Awards program and its seal of excellence are recognized worldwide by consumers and educational institutions as a mark of genuinely effective learning tools that stimulate the mind, and provide potential for the student to fully develop higher order thinking skills.

Wixie is a winner of the Academics’ Choice Smart Media Award in the mobile app category. The Academics' Choice Advisory Board consists of leading thinkers and graduates from Princeton, Harvard, George Washington University, and other reputable educational institutions. Product-appropriate volunteer reviewers, combined with the brainpower of the Board, determine the coveted winners. Entries are judged by category (i.e. mobile app, toy, book, website, magazine, etc.), subject area, and grade level, and evaluated based on standardized criteria rooted in constructivist learning theory. The full list of winners is posted online at: www.AcademicsChoice.com.

“We have been developing Wixie for the past nine years and are excited to see so many fantastic uses of it in the classroom,” shares David Wagner, CEO of Tech4Learning. “Hundreds of thousands of students are using Wixie for their curriculum projects and we can’t wait to see where teachers and students apply it next!”

The hundreds of submitted products that are not chosen by the Academics’ Choice Awards team (and many that are chosen) are donated to a variety of worthy charities and other organizations across the globe.
