Lesson Planet Wins 2014 BESSIE for Best Educational Software

Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2014

Lesson Planet has won a BESSIE in the best teacher tools category in ComputED Gazettes 20th Annual Best Educational Software Awards.

Lesson Planet has started offering video courses to help teachers integrate educational technology into their classrooms, judges noted in the award review, which highlights only four of 14 winners in the teacher tools category. The website is expertly produced and highly motivating.

Launched in mid-2013, Lesson Planet professional development boasts 21 courses (25 by mid-2014) on topics identified by the 2012 New Media Consortium (NMC) Horizon Report as most relevant for K-12 education now: mobile devices & apps and tablet computing.


Lesson Planet PD courses align to ISTE/NETS standards and address topics including Digital Citizenship, iPad and Google tools, and social media for teachers. EdTech Tuesdays, informal five-minute video reviews focused specifically on teachers needs, highlight a different digital tool, app, or trend in educational technology each week.

The awards prestige is rooted in ComputED Gazettes non-biased process. BESSIEs are a great independent review of the best and most innovative products for education, said edtech insider Kevin Custer, founding principal of Arc Capital Development, a private equity firm focused on education and healthcare. Selections are based on the quality of the program, he added. ComputED's reviewers work from an objective perspective not influenced by corporate contributions.
