BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For the third year in a row, Ogment® has been named a finalist by the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA) in two education categories of 2018 CODiE Awards. CODiEs recognize effective and innovative technologies in business and education technology. This year Ogment has been named a finalist in the categories for Best Digital Aggregation & Sharing Solution and Best Professional Learning Solution for Faculty and Administrative Staff.
Ogment is an integrated digital curriculum mapping and management solution giving educators real-time data all year long to help continuously improve curriculum and instruction. In both 2016 and 2017, Ogment won the CODiE Award for Best Cross Curriculum Solution. In those years, Ogment was also a finalist in Best K-12 Course or Learning Management Solution, Best Classroom Management Solution, and Best Instructional Solution in Other Curriculum Areas.
“We are proud to be named CODiE finalists again this year, especially in these two particular categories. As Ogment has evolved over the past few years, more districts are realizing that it’s an excellent tool for providing professional learning to educators,” said Johanna Wetmore, who created Ogment with her team of "eduneers" at EvoText. “And it’s great that Ogment is being recognized for its excellent collaboration features, like the Ogment Stream and PLCs, where educators can work together to build high-quality curriculum maps and courses.”
According to one of the CODiE judges, “Ogment is an exceptional resource to support curriculum instruction. This platform was very carefully and strategically developed to address everything teachers need to maintain professionalism in the instructional environment of teachers.”
“I am impressed by the level of innovation and creativity demonstrated by the 2018 CODiE award finalists. These products are opening doors for learners of all ages by developing and utilizing new technologies to respond to student and educator needs,” said Ken Wasch, president of SIIA.
