"We are proud to receive this 2020 EdTech Breakthrough Award in recognition of our success in developing an engaging experience with longitudinal career readiness efficacy," said Angelo Biasi, MassiveU Founder and CEO. "Employers want agile, creative candidates who can add sustained value, both independently and on a team. Solvably facilitates collaborative, creative problem-solving in a remote asynchronous / synchronous environment where, over time, learners instinctually apply their 21st Century skills to any situation."
The prestigious awards program recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market, attracting more than 1,750 nominations from over 15 different countries this year. "We are at a point where we can achieve education transformation at a global scale, but several categories of learning such as problem-solving skills have traditionally been challenging to teach through online learning," said EdTech Breakthrough Managing Director James Johnson. "Creative and critical thinking, along with problem-solving skills are exactly what people need to thrive in the workforce, and MassiveU is addressing this challenge head-on with their breakthrough Solvably platform."
Solvably features a content library of 450+ interactive, standards-aligned challenges, and also offers instructors the ability to author and distribute their own custom challenges.
