Triumph Learning, producer of critically acclaimed K-12 instructional materials and interactive digital tools, was recognized as Best of Show by Tech & Learning for its online learning platform, Waggle, at the 2015 ISTE Conference and Exhibition in Philadelphia. The award program honors innovative classroom solutions that help students and teachers improve learning outcomes.
Launched during ISTE 2014 in Atlanta, Waggle generates a smart practice environment to help students in grades 3-8 build critical-thinking skills and prepare for assessments.

An anonymous panel of educator judges, who experienced the solution firsthand on the exhibit hall floor during the conference, selected Waggle as a recipient of the honor. Judges evaluated Waggle on quality, effectiveness, ease of use and creative use of technology. It was named Best of Show based on the impact the solution has in the classroom to improve student learning.
