Lexia PowerUp Literacy Wins Best Personalized/Adaptive Learning Tool

In the 2020 Tech Edvocate Awards for the Second Consecutive Year

For the second time in two months, Lexia Learning, a Rosetta Stone company (NYSE: RST) has had two of its literacy programs recognized as standouts in a prominent edtech award program. In this latest award program, Lexia® PowerUp Literacy® (PowerUp) was recognized as a winner in the category of Best Personalized/Adaptive Learning App or Tool. The company’s highly-regarded Lexia® Core5® Reading (Core5) was also named a finalist in the category for Best Literacy App or Tool.

This is the fourth year of the Tech Edvocate Awards, which recognizes outstanding edtech products that support students across the Pre-K-20 sector by catering to identified classroom and learning needs. Winners and finalists were selected by a panel of educators and industry experts who reviewed the submissions and judged the products and services based on the extent to which they are transforming education through the development or advocacy of edtech. A complete list of winners of the 2020 Tech Edvocate Awards can be found here.

“The Tech Edvocate Awards represent the combined opinion of industry insiders, knowledgeable educators, and interested parents,” said Lexia President, Nick Gaehde. “It’s an honor to have our literacy programs recognized as solutions that are positively impacting teaching and learning—and having access to adaptive, personalized tools has never been more important than during this unprecedented time of COVID-19.”

PowerUp is an adaptive blended learning program that accelerates literacy gains for struggling and non-proficient readers in grades 6–12. By lending online student-driven instruction with offline teacher-delivered lessons and activities, the program simultaneously addresses gaps in fundamental literacy skills while building higher-order analytical skills through age-appropriate content, motivational elements, and unparalleled personalization.

Core5 is an adaptive blended learning program that accelerates the development of literacy skills for students of all abilities in grades pre-K–5, helping them make that critical shift from learning to read to reading to learn. Core5 provides all students — from at-risk to on-level and advanced — with a systematic and structured approach to six areas of reading, from phonological awareness to comprehension.
