Our classroom management system includes powerful dashboards and adaptive learning algorithms that allow teachers to challenge students at or above grade level while providing more individualized attention for students that are struggling. Wowzers can then provide a detailed report of student performance and teacher usage through the dashboard for administrators to use. Being awarded Best K-12 Solution is a particular honor because we were chosen out of all CODiE Award nominees, including McGraw-Hill, Blackboard, Pearson, and Discovery Education.
