NATICK, Mass., Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Classroom Suite by IntelliTools® has been selected as a 2012 District Administration Readers' Choice Top 100 Product. Classroom Suite was chosen as a Top 100 Product as judged by the editors of District Administration, who considered more than 1000 nominations to select those solutions that truly make a difference in people's lives.
Classroom Suite is a unique software intervention tool to help students in grades Pre K–5 achieve mastery in reading, writing and mathematics. Classroom Suite provides students with explicit instruction, constructive practice and embedded assessments to allow teachers to gauge progress and individualize instruction for their students. Based upon the research into both scientific learning principles and best teaching practices, computer-aided instruction can support concept mastery and enrich the learning environment for all students.
"Being recognized by the editors of District Administration after being nominated by our own customers is especially gratifying," said Alex Saltonstall, general manager of Kurzweil Educational Systems and IntelliTools. "We are honored to be named a Top 100 Product, and more than anything we are proud that this product has made such a positive difference in the lives of the students we serve."
The annual District Administration Readers' Choice Top 100 Products award recognizes leaders in the education industry, and provides superintendents and other senior school district leaders with the unique opportunity to learn what products their colleagues around the country are using, and how these products contribute to the success of their districts.
"The record number of nominations we received this year was astonishing," says Odvard Egil Dyrli, District Administration's executive editor. "There were so many excellent recommendations from school administrators who shared how the products made significant differences in their districts, and choosing the Top 100 proved to be challenging and difficult. We are delighted to announce the honorees for 2012 and trust that the list will be a valuable resource for our readers."
The complete list of winners have been announced online and are featured in the December issue of District Administration magazine.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is.

Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
