DALLAS, Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cambium Learning Group announced today that three of the company's innovative online programs received Awards of Excellence from Tech & Learning magazine. The Cambium Learning Group winners include ExploreLearning's Reflex™, Voyager Learning's VocabJourney® and Voyager Online Algebra. Honoring groundbreaking software, hardware, network, and Web products, the prestigious 30-year-old program also recognizes products that significantly enhance proven education tools. A panel of more than 30 educators tested more than 160 entries to select the full roster of winners to be featured in the December 2012 issue.
"As schools continue to have to do more with less, buying the right solution for your district needs is more important than ever," says Kevin Hogan, editorial director for NewBay Media's Tech & Learning Group. "Tech & Learning is proud to present these recommended products that have been put to the test by our experienced educational team of judges."
Reflex is a revolutionary, game-based system that helps students of all ability levels develop instant recall of their basic math facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division). Reflex is adaptive and individualized for each student and gives educators everything they need to monitor and support student progress. With 24/7 access from any location, students can build math fact fluency anywhere—at school and at home.
VocabJourney is an interactive, online reading program that improves vocabulary and comprehension skills for students in grades 3-12. Reinforcing critical vocabulary skills taught in the classroom and providing additional vocabulary support for English Language Learners (ELL), the program monitors responses and adapts instruction to meet individual needs. Using the three-step approach—Learn, Play, and Master, the web-based VocabJourney provides more flexibility, additional opportunities to read, and exciting narrative and informational text.
Designed for students in grades 8–12 and beyond, Voyager Online Algebra supports students who have failed, or are at risk of failing algebra—as well as students in need of an algebra refresher course before taking College Algebra after high school graduation. Students may take the self-directed Voyager Online Algebra course as needed—working at their own pace and repeating difficult lessons, as appropriate.
