VINCI Curriculum the Best Game-based Curriculum Solution Enables Families to Spend Their Time on Technology Wisely

OTTAWA, May 22, 2014 /CNW/ - VINCI Education, home of the award-winning Blended Learning Solution, today announced that VINCI Curriculum won an SIIA CODiE Award for Best Game-based Curriculum Solution. 

The (American) Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, announced VINCI Education as one of 31 CODiE Award winners among 215 nominees in the education technology category. An SIIA CODiE Award win for ed tech companies is an especially prestigious honor, as each award winner has been selected by a combination of educators, who act as initial judges by selecting finalists from among all nominees, and SIIA members-company peers, who vote to select the winners from among the finalists.

VINCI Curriculum, specially designed for children 1.5 to 6 years, offers a step-by-step learning structure comprised of 43 learning subjects and three levels of assessment that cover six essential areas of a child's developing mind including Thinking Skills, Emotional and Social Skills, Language and Literacy, Math and Logical Reasoning, General Knowledge and Science.

Originally developed for home use, VINCI Curriculum also served as the base for VINCI Education's further development into the preschool and elementary markets, with real-time data-enabled, game-based assessment and curriculum - ClassVINCI Blended Solution for schools.

"We are thrilled to have won the prestige CODIE Award," said Dr. Dan Yang, founder and CEO of VINCI Education. "Through our effort in developing game-based curriculum, and our effort pushing STEM into primary grades via the opening of our model school - VINCI School of Ottawa, we are committed to getting young children excited about learning, preparing them to meet tomorrow's challenges".

"SIIA's 2014 Education CODiE Award winners' are some of the most innovative, high-impact education products out there," said SIIA Vice President for the Education Division Karen Billings. "We congratulate all of this year's CODiE Award winners, and thank them for the contributions they have made to the education industry.
