DALLAS, Nov. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Two Cambium Learning® Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: ABCD), solutions have earned the 31st Annual Award of Excellence from Tech & Learning magazine. Kurzweil 3000®-firefly by Kurzweil Educational Systems® and Reading A–Z from Learning A–Z were recognized as two of the Best Upgraded Products to "help educators in the business of teaching, training, and managing with technology." Through several rounds of judging, entries were given a comprehensive test drive by more than 30 qualified educators, who tested more than 150 entries.
Kurzweil 3000-firefly is literacy support software that enables struggling students, including those with learning differences such as dyslexia, and English Language Learners, to learn from the same content as their peers. Anchored in the principles of Universal Design for Learning, it supports the complex tasks of developing fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, writing, study skills, and test-taking strategies. Kurzweil 3000-firefly and the free companion iPad app provide access to any curriculum, anytime and anywhere.
Spanning 27 levels of difficulty, Reading A-Z contains thousands of leveled, printable books for PreK–6, making it the best web-based source for differentiated reading materials. In addition, the site is filled with other instructional resources, including projectable books, activity sheets, assessments, fluency scripts, lesson plans, correlations to Common Core and state standards, and more.
