Huron, Ohioâ€”Business Wire n2y, a leader in producing special education materials, today announced that its acclaimed curriculum solution, Unique Learning SystemÂ® (ULS), recently won two Best Educational Software Awards (BESSIE) in two categories: Teacher Tools and Multi-Level Solution. The BESSIE Awards follow EdTech Digest naming ULS the Best Special Needs Solution and receiving an SIIA CODiE in the same category.
â€œReceiving this steady stream of awards that recognize n2yâ€™s Unique Learning System for its innovation and efficacy is quite an honor,â€ explained Chrissy Wostmann, n2y CEO. â€œThe sheer number of education technology products on the market can be overwhelming for educators and administrators; they want to know what works best for students, what innovations warrant the investment of limited resources. This string of awards makes it clear that when it comes to special education, n2yâ€™s products are in a class of their own.â€
Now in its 24th year, the Best Educational Software Awards are determined by The ComputED Gazette, an outlet widely recognized as one of Californiaâ€™s leading educational resources. The Awards target innovative and content-rich programs and websites that provide parents and teachers with the technology to foster educational excellence. Selection criteria includes academic content, technical merit, subject approach and management system. The BESSIES has had the distinction of previously being co-sponsored by the CBS-affiliate in San Diego (KFMB-TV).
â€œCalifornia is often viewed as an influencer by other states,â€ Wostmann continued. â€œKnowing that our Unique Learning System meets the needs of California students with special needs, parents, and educators will give districts across the US the confidence to know that it will work in their states as well. We know that all students can learn and thrive, and n2y provides the best solutions to build confidence and success in learners of all ages and abilities.â€
