ANNOUNCING THE 21ST ANNUAL EDUCATION

The ComputED Gazette is now accepting entries for its 21st Annual Education Software Review Awards (EDDIE Awards). The EDDIES recognizes innovative and content-rich software and websites that can be used by educators to augment the classroom curriculum and improve teacher productivity; or by parents for home-schooling and enrichment. Some selection criteria are academic content, potential for broad classroom use, technical merit, subject approach, and quality of management system. Software and website winners of previous awards, and older products that can compete in today's market, are accepted regardless of publication date. Deadline for receipt of entries is August 19, 2016.
Winners receive a digital EDDIES logo for promotional use, and up to ten winning entries are selected by our staff writers for inclusion in the Awards Showcase and expanded Reviews section.
