WASHINGTON, D.C. & STOCKHOLM JUNE 14, 2018
The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) has awarded the Plotagon Education application from Plotagon AB the 2018 CODiE Award for Best Creativity Tool for Students. CODiE Award recipients are the companies producing the most innovative Business and Education technology products across the country and around the world.
“For years teachers have been telling us how they love using Plotagon in their classrooms and helping their students make their first animated movies,” said Filip Grufman, CEO of Plotagon. “We are grateful to the software industry for recognizing the trend toward creative engagement with this CODiE Award.”
Plotagon’s moviemaking tool lets teachers and students create their own animated avatars and movies for subjects like English Language Arts, foreign languages, social studies, and special education. Plotagon also offers versions of its software for individuals, businesses, and nonprofits.
“I am impressed by the level of innovation and creativity demonstrated by the 2018 CODiE award winners. These products are opening doors for learners of all ages by developing and utilizing new technologies to respond to student and educator needs.” said Ken Wasch, President of SIIA.
The winner announcement was made by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, during the SIIA Annual Conference & CODiE Awards in San Francisco. Forty awards were given for products and services deployed specifically for education and learning professionals.
An SIIA CODiE Award win is a prestigious honor, as each award winner was first reviewed by expert judges including educators and administrators, whose evaluations determined the finalists. SIIA members then vote on the finalist products, and the scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.
