Reimagine Education Gold Award Winner

In December, AIM Pathways received the Science of Learning Gold Award at the Reimagine Education conference. The platform was among more than 1,000 Reimagine Award submissions for this global event and was one of just 13 category gold award winners. Conference panelists shared this about the professional learning platform.

"Literacy is the foundation upon which all subsequent academic attainment rests: there are perhaps few educational interventions more impactful than effectively reducing the reading gap. To do so, teachers need to be empowered by scalable, affordable solutions – but these solutions also need to be based upon rigorous learning theory. AIM Pathways' solution meets all of these criteria. We commend it, in particular, for the work that they have done to ensure that their digital platform is based on insights from leading neuroscience and literary researchers: in doing so, they offer a model that all digital learning platforms should follow."
