Snowflake MultiTeach® earns prestigious industry recognition

Skellefteå, Sweden (June 14, 2017) NUITEQ, a multi-award winning world leader in collaborative touch screen software solutions for education, enterprise, and entertainment, today announced that Snowflake MultiTeach was named a 2017 SIIA CODiE Award finalist in the Best Learning Capacity-Building Solution & Best Emerging Education Technology Solution categories. Finalists represent applications, products and services from developers of educational software, digital content, online learning services and related technologies across the PreK-20 sector.

Most children are easily distracted. NUITEQ's Snowflake MultiTeach software solves this problem in K-12 education by making learning more fun, engaging and memorable, resulting in exciting interactive classroom experiences that improve the performance of pupils, teachers and schools.

Snowflake MultiTeach is a powerful and fun educational software suite designed to support collaborative learning. It is used on interactive multi-user multitouch displays, laptops, whiteboards, projectors, Chromebooks, iPads and other tablets.

Its multimedia-based apps and lesson types support multimodal learning, and address the needs of a wide range of educators and learners, including those with special needs.

The software helps to build the confidence of students and develops their knowledge on different subjects, such as spelling, grammar, maths, geography and other subjects.

The game and activity based apps are designed to improve both social and communication skills.

Teachers can share assignments with students and they can use it on their personal device in the classroom or at home. Furthermore the teacher can track the results and performance of students.

Teachers can also create their own curriculum-aligned touch screen lessons for their students, in a couple of minutes.

They can even access the online MultiTeach Lessons Community, which connects teachers globally.

Community members can search for and download lessons that other teachers created, and they can also share their own.

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier awards for the software and information industries, and have been recognizing product excellence for over 30 years. The awards offer 93 categories that are organized by industry focus of education technology and business technology. Snowflake MultiTeach was honored as one of 160 finalists across the 34 education technology categories.

“I am impressed by the level of innovation and creativity demonstrated by the 2017 CODiE award finalists. These products are opening doors for learners of all ages by combining new technologies with research about how people learn in order to respond to student and educator needs.” said Bridget Foster, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of the Education Technology Industry Network (ETIN), a division of SIIA.

"We are proud that Snowflake MultiTeach has been recognised as a finalist in two categories. It is great to see that a highly regarded organisation like SIIA and its esteemed judges, find that we have created such a valueable product for educators and young learners in the educational market.", said NUITEQ's CEO and co-founder Harry van der Veen.

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program. Educators and administrators serve as judges and conduct the first-round review of all education nominees. Their scores determine the SIIA CODiE Award finalists, and SIIA members then vote on the finalist products. The scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners. Winners will be announced during a CODiE Award Winner Ceremony in San Francisco on July 26 at the Education Impact Symposium, hosted by the Education Technology Industry Network (ETIN), a division of SIIA.
