HERNDON, Va., August 1, 2014—Personalized learning solutions provider Fuel Education™ today announced that it has won a 2014-15 eSchool News Readers’ Choice Award for its PEAK™ Personalized Learning Platform, which helps school districts reduce system complexity, simplify administration, differentiate instruction, and improve student outcomes.

eSchool News, a publisher of K-12 ed-tech news and information, sponsors the Readers’ Choice Award to honor the best products and services in educational technology as chosen by eSchool News readers.  More than 1,300 educators and administrators from K-12 schools and districts across North America nominated their favorite ed-tech products or services this past spring. Educators were asked to describe how they were using each product to improve teaching, learning, or school administration – and to what effect.

“The result is a list of ed-tech products and services that have proven to be effective,” said eSchool News’ Editorial Director Dennis Pierce. “We hope readers will find this information valuable as they consider what technologies they should use in their own schools.”

Fuel Education’s PEAK is an open, easy-to-use Personalized Learning Platform that provides a single, unified view of online and blended learning activities across multiple solutions for administrators, teachers, and students.  PEAK provides intelligent reporting and analytics to help districts reduce system complexity and simplify administration as they adopt more digital and online learning solutions.

Further, PEAK empowers teachers with course customization tools to help differentiate instruction and improve student outcomes. Fuel Education recently integrated three highly recognized and respected education content providers—Khan Academy®, YouTube® EDU, and Britannica School®—into the PEAK Personalized Learning Platform.  Teachers can use content from these third-party providers, FuelEd™ content, or teacher-authored content to quickly develop or customize assessments, lessons, or courses through a single, easy-to-use interface. In addition, PEAK uniquely enables teachers to conduct graded activities and to track student progress and engagement with the customized content, regardless of the source of the content.

“Our school district partners understand that personalized learning that leverages multiple content sources and solutions is the future of education, and we are very pleased they are taking advantage of the PEAK platform to do just that,” said Gregg Levin, General Manager of Fuel Education. “We have designed PEAK to enable districts to implement, scale, and personalize their online learning programs through technology that integrates with their existing systems, and that provides teacher tools, interactive data, and intelligent analytics.  PEAK’s course customization tools enable teachers to use the best digital content available in the marketplace today and pair it with content they have created to meet specific student and classroom needs. And as our district partners’ needs continue to evolve, we are committed to further enhancing PEAK with additional content and new features that will help them meet the needs of more of their students.”

Award winners are recognized in a special feature published in the August 2014 edition of eSchool News, which highlights the winning products and services and includes comments from readers about why each entry deserves the award.
