“We are tremendously excited and honored to be recognized by EdTech Digest as a leader in the edtech industry for our all-in-one lesson planning, lesson delivery, curriculum management and learning object repository platform,” stated Learning Explorer CEO, Jim Hurley. “Our team is focused on making it easy for preK-12 teachers to discover, build, manage, share, and deliver engaging, standards-based lessons anytime, anywhere. Ideal for in-person and remote learning, Learning Explorer has been designed to help educators successfully address some of today’s teaching challenges such as learning loss, curriculum equity, and student engagement.”
“The worldwide pandemic put education and training to the test, but remote learning and working—in many unexpected ways—ultimately brought us closer,” said Victor Rivero, who as Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest, oversees the program. “Trying times revealed strengths and capabilities of people, and workability of products. Leaders and innovators with their tools and techniques worked hard to keep the learning world connected to knowledge and each other.
