Reasoning Mind Blueprint Named SIIA Education Technology CODiE Award Finalist for Best PreK / Early Childhood Learning Solution

Math education nonprofit Reasoning Mind earns prestigious industry recognition as a CODiE Award finalist for PK-1 blended learning program Blueprint.

Reasoning Mind’s newest program, Blueprint, received recognition Monday as a 2017 SIIA CODiE Award finalist in the Best PreK / Early Childhood Learning Solution category. Finalists represent applications, products, and services from developers of educational software, digital content, online learning services, and related technologies across the PreK-20 sector.

Reasoning Mind Blueprint is a supplemental, online math program for students in Grades Pre-K through 1. Its design specifically meets the needs of very young learners. The program’s focused and coherent curriculum covers foundational math topics that are most important for young students’ future success in math. Topics such as number sense, algebraic thinking, and word problems are developed gradually but deeply over time through a carefully-sequenced, spiraling curriculum. Blueprint students interact with a fun, engaging, virtual setting that helps connect math to the surrounding world. Furthermore, teachers can use the color-coded, easy-to-read dashboard to leverage real-time data for viewing both at-a-glance indicators of student performance as well as detailed reports for further analysis.

I am impressed by the level of innovation and creativity… These products are opening doors for learners of all ages by combining new technologies with research about how people learn in order to respond to student and educator needs

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier awards for the software and information industries. They have been recognizing product excellence for over 30 years. The awards offer 93 categories that are organized by industry focus of education technology and business technology. Reasoning Mind Blueprint received the honor of being one of four finalists in the Best PreK / Early Childhood Learning Solution category.

“I am impressed by the level of innovation and creativity demonstrated by the 2017 CODiE award finalists. These products are opening doors for learners of all ages by combining new technologies with research about how people learn in order to respond to student and educator needs,” said Bridget Foster, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of the Education Technology Industry Network (ETIN), a division of SIIA.

“We are excited to see Blueprint recognized as a finalist in the Best PreK / Early Childhood Learning Solution category,” said Julia Khachatryan, Senior Vice President of Reasoning Mind, who has been leading the Blueprint development team. “We’ve gotten a lot of enthusiasm from the students and teachers using the program in their classrooms. So it’s inspiring to see a prestigious competition like the CODiE Awards recognizing Blueprint’s potential as well.”

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry’s only peer-reviewed awards program. Educators and administrators serve as judges and conduct the first-round review of all education nominees. Their scores determine the SIIA CODiE Award finalists, and SIIA members then vote on the finalist products. The scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners. Winners will be announced during a CODiE Award Winner Ceremony in San Francisco on July 26 at the Education Impact Symposium. The Education Technology Industry Network (ETIN), a division of SIIA, will host the ceremony.
