Prestigious International Awards Program Recognizes Outstanding Educational Technology Products and Companies

CHICAGO – June 8, 2023 – Britannica Education, a global leader in reliable, award-winning reference and curriculum solutions, today announced that Expedition: Learn! has been selected as winner of the “Digital Learning Platform of the Year” award in the 5th annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market.

Expedition: Learn! is a digital learning platform  that takes students through interactive, standards-aligned lessons with built-in, ready-to-use differentiated instruction and assessments. Lesson content, available at four different Lexiled reading levels, helps students develop critical thinking, problem-solving, media literacy, and communication skills.

Educators in grades 3 through 8 can easily assign lessons and monitor student progress with LMS integration, rostering capabilities, and comprehensive cross-curricular reporting tools. Teachers can also quickly identify areas where learners need additional support and adjust instruction to help achieve success.

“Expanding a student’s vocabulary, and supporting their journey in science and social studies is essential to student improvement and success. However, there are so many varying needs with students, and everyone of them is individualized. A full range of teaching strategies should be available to make the learning experience as accessible as possible for each unique learner,” said James Johnson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough. “Britannica’s Expedition: Learn! has earned our ‘Digital Learning Platform of the Year’ award for delivering on this need, providing engaging, breakthrough learning experiences to cater to a variety of learning preferences, needs, and styles and helps students develop a deep understanding of core concepts.”
