BOSTON, Sept. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For the second consecutive year, Lexia Learning’s personalized literacy programs, Lexia® Core5® Reading (Core5) and Lexia® PowerUp Literacy® (PowerUp), were standouts in the Tech Edvocate Awards program. PowerUp was recognized as a winner in the category of Best Personalized/Adaptive Learning App or Tool while Core5 was named a finalist in the category for Best Literacy App or Tool.
As in previous years, the Tech Edvocate Awards recognize outstanding edtech products that are focused on advocating for students by catering to identified classroom and learning needs. The winners and finalists were selected by a panel of educators and K-12 parents who reviewed the submissions and judged the products and services based on the extent to which they are transforming education through the development or advocacy of edtech.
“High-quality, peer-reviewed efficacy research has always been at the center of our pedagogical approach.” said Lexia President Nick Gaehde. “That is why we are so delighted to receive these accolades for both PowerUp and Core5. By maintaining a keen focus on outcomes, we are able to help millions of students build strong literacy skills.”
PowerUp is designed to enhance core English language arts instruction for struggling readers in grades six and above.

With a range of engaging texts, instructional videos and game-based motivational elements, the program is designed to help students take ownership of their learning, acknowledging their growing autonomy and building their confidence. Additionally, embedded progress monitoring, actionable data and scripted lessons empower teachers to deliver the exact instruction each student needs.
