Renaissance Accelerated Reader 360 honored at ISTE 2016

One of the highlights of our summer was the time we spent at ISTE 2016 in Denver, Colorado. During the show, Renaissance Accelerated Reader 360 won Tech & Learning’s prestigious Best of Show award. Each year, winners are selected and rated by an anonymous panel of educator judges. They scour the exhibit hall floor to identify the technologies they feel have the most impact on the classroom based on quality, effectiveness, ease of use, and creative use of technology.

It's always a thrill to be recognized for your hard work, but it is a special honor to be appreciated by educators who love our software.
