These nominations were counted and assessed by eSchool Media, and the top 50 singled out for recognition as 2012 Award Winners.
In receiving this accolade Mangahigh.com gains recognition from both eSchool Media and from the teaching profession, earning its place on the ‘2012 Reader’s Choice Awards Report’ which constitutes a definitive list of the educational technology products that have proven to be effective, as vouchsafed and recommended by education decision makers nationwide.
“Mangahigh is a great way to shake up our math class - room while injecting it with a big dose of fun, discovery, and challenge,” said Pierre Renaud, a teacher for the Ottawa - Carleton District in Ontario who nominated Mangahigh. “It’s easy for students to work at their own pace and for us to track progress. ... We also use the built-in analytics to help inform decisions about where to go next with our students, [and] many students who have computers at home continue their learning there.”
