Paradigm's Engagement Tool Recognized as a Finalist in the 2021 EdTech Cool Tools Awards

Paradigm Education Solutions, a division of Kendall Hunt, announced that its Engagement Tool was selected as a finalist in the 2021 EdTech Cool Tools Awards program in the following categories:

  • Communications Solution
  • eLearning, Blended, or Flipped Solution
  • Resources/Other Helpful Tools for Education

The Engagement Tool instantly transforms any smart device into a multi-purpose course companion that allows learners to follow along with lecture slides and videos, tracking their retention as they go.

More secure, cost-effective, and reliable than other options on the market, the Engagement Tool contains live quizzes, class polls, opportunities to ask questions in real-time, and more. This solution is ideal for in-person, online, and hybrid courses.

This is the second year in a row that one of Paradigm’s technology platforms was recognized as a finalist in the EdTech Cool Tools Awards program. In 2020, Paradigm achieved recognition for its Cirrus learning environment.

Celebrating its 11th year, the EdTech Awards program is the largest recognition program in all of education technology, recognizing the biggest names in edtech—and those who soon will be.

“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. As so many have shown, nothing can stop the human spirit—and we continue to move forward,” Rivero said.

The EdTech Awards recognizes people in and around education for outstanding contributions in transforming education through technology to enrich the lives of learners everywhere.
