Teaching Strategies Receives Prestigious Award for Innovative Classroom Resource Designed by and for Early Childhood Educators

American Association of Publishers awards Teaching Strategies’ GOLDplus® one of their top awards for innovative professional resources

PHILADELPHIA, PA (June 17, 2016)Teaching Strategies, a leading early childhood education resource provider, has received the American Association of Publishers’ Innovation in Classroom Professional Resources award for their newest digital solution, which supports teachers’ ability to plan intentional instruction that meets the unique needs of each child during their early years.

GOLDplus®, is designed to provide early educators with a classroom solution that automatically integrates curricular resources with observational assessment data to support teachers’ ability to individualize instruction for all students.

“Everything we do at Teaching Strategies is centered on strengthening relationships in early childhood programs, particularly the teacher-child relationship,” said Kai-leé Berke, lifelong educator and CEO of Teaching Strategies. “A child’s ability to learn and to develop a love of learning during their earliest years is greatly influenced by their teachers. When we use technology to support teachers in getting to know each child well, and by building that essential relationship that is the cornerstone of high quality care and teaching, we’re helping to ensure that every child has a chance to develop a strong foundation for success.”

GOLDplus® was recognized during the American Association of Publishers’ 50th annual program. The REVERE (Recognizing Valuable Educational Resources) Awards program identifies outstanding, high quality educational products and resources that engage today’s teachers and students, and has become one of the most prestigious awards for learning resources in the nation.

“We are honored to be recognized for our work by AAP,” said David Ashman, Teaching Strategies’ Chief Technology Officer. “Winning this award reflects our commitment to supporting educators with the highest quality tools and resources. Our technology is designed to make it easier to plan intentional learning experiences, observe student progress, and tailor instruction and care to meet individual needs, freeing teachers up to spend more time with the children in their classrooms.”

As part of the award process, Teaching Strategies’ platform underwent a three-month evaluation process by expert judges from education, technology, and design. The winners were announced at the annual AAP REVERE Awards Gala in Philadelphia, PA on June 8, 2016.
