Winners of the 2004 BESSIE Awards

     ComputED Learning Center, San Diego's leading computer education resource, is pleased to announce winners of its 10th Annual Best Educational Software Awards-awards aimed at recognizing innovative and content-rich programs and websites which provide parents and teachers with the technology tools to foster educational excellence. The BESSIES have had the distinction of previously being co-sponsored by the CBS-affiliate in San Diego (KFMB-TV, Ch.8). Winners are selected from titles submitted by software publishers from around the world (a list of last year's winners is available). All submitted titles are made available to school districts, teachers, and the public through ComputED and the Educational Software Preview Service of San Diego Center for Educational Technology (a nonprofit organization).
