NEW YORK, NY – Oct. 6, 2014 – Triumph Learning, producer of critically acclaimed K-12 instructional materials and interactive digital tools, received three Education Software Review (EDDIE) Awards for its online learning platform, Waggle. The company took home the top prize for its new learning solution in the following categories: Online English Language Arts Courseware, Online Math Courseware and Online Classroom Management System.

“Through Waggle, every student receives personalized practice and instruction in a safe learning environment to engage in productive struggle, helping them to master core skills,” said Aoife Dempsey, Chief Technology Officer of Triumph Learning. “Being recognized by the EDDIE Awards demonstrates that Waggle delivers on that promise.”

Launched at ISTE 2014, Waggle generates a smart practice environment to help students in grades 3-8 build critical thinking and prepare for assessments. The online tool champions productive struggle by creating a safe and engaging space for students to explore, build confidence and accelerate learning for English language arts and math. Waggle also offers teachers a differentiated instructional tool set so that they can easily group students and deliver recommended practice or instruction to groups or individual students to meet students where they are. Furthermore, Waggle is fully integrated with Triumph Learning’s Coach resources for a seamless blended learning solution.

The platform leverages Knewton’s adaptive learning engine, which analyzes what students know and how they learn best. Using this innovative adaptive engine, Waggle personalizes learning paths for each student by recommending what they should study next. Waggle’s interactive skills map creates a snapshot of student progress, allowing teachers to quickly filter content by proficiency and scores. The platform’s intuitive reporting gives teachers the help they need in planning and adjusting instruction for each student.

The EDDIE Awards are sponsored by ComputEd Gazette, a leading online educational resource created by educators who have provided the finest computer education to children and adults for more than 20 years.
