May 11, 2020 - MobyMax, the most widely adopted differentiated learning solution in the U.S., has been awarded the 2020 EdTech Awards for Best Early Learning Solution and Best Skills Solution (a.k.a. 21st-Century Skills Solution).
The EdTech Awards are presented annually to the most exceptional innovators, leaders, and trendsetters in education technology. Award finalists and winners are selected from thousands of entries made by educators who use technology to enhance, improve, and transform their everyday instruction.
Both the Early Learning Solution award and the Best Skills Solution award recognize Moby’s comprehensive and groundbreaking tools, which have been in particularly high demand since Coronavirus forced almost every school in America to transition to online learning almost overnight in mid-March.
As soon as shutdowns began happening, Moby offered its software for free through the remainder of the school year. So far, more than 5,000 schools have enrolled in MobyMax at no cost. The company also began hosting daily live webinars, each attended by over 130 teachers, to ensure that teachers get the support they need so their students can keep learning.
“Our company was founded to help students close learning gaps and learn twice as fast – whether students are in the classroom or on a device remotely,” said MobyMax co-founder Glynn Willett. “What we’re hearing from teachers – and what is reinforced by the recognition of these awards – is that our solution works, especially during this pandemic crisis.”
“What’s more,” added Willett, is that “parents love it, too. Especially for parents not used to homeschooling their kids, MobyMax is so easy for their children to figure out that it provides stressed parents with welcome relief and assurance that their kids will keep learning, whether the parents can help or not.”
