Best Online Learning Platforms & Apps To Help Kids Think Critically - Spring 2020


APTOS, Calif., May 30, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Academics' Choice today congratulates all winners of the Spring 2020 Academics' Choice Awards, a prestigious seal of educational quality, reserved only for the best mind-building media and toys. The spring winners include brain-boosting products from ExploreLearning, Pixton Comics, Wurrlyedu, Shmoop University, Learning Ally, Lenovo, Curriculum Associates, Erik X. Raj, LLC, Press4kids, Hoot Reading, Vooks, and more! The full list of winners is posted online at http://www.academicschoice.com/2020.

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.

"LanSchool's mission to empower educators as they inspire better student outcomes has never been stronger, and our team is honored to receive a Smart Media award this year. We are thankful to Academics' Choice for the significant role they play in helping educators choose the best and most innovative technology and educational resources for their schools." - Coby Gurr, General Manager at Lenovo Software

"Two years ago we decided to rewrite our already successful comic app because we knew we could make it even better. This award helps to confirm that we achieved that goal. Not only is Pixton EDU the easiest to use and most graphically beautiful writing tool in the edtech market but it adds real value in the classroom. Learning is enhanced when lessons are personalized and students can see themselves in the material. Teaching is made easier when the medium is fun and relatable. We are honoured with this award and will continue to strive towards making the classroom experience a fun and engaging one." - Clive Goodinson, CEO, Pixton Comics

Many of the products that are evaluated by the Academics' Choice Awards team are donated to a variety of worthy charities including the Kids In Need Foundation and the Toys for Tots Foundation.
