ROANOKE, VA (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 08, 2022
Veracity Verification Solutions, a third-party evaluator of EdTech software solutions, has announced Lumio’s entrance into the Veracity Marketplace after completion of Veracity’s rigorous assessment of the digital teaching and learning tool from SMART Technologies. Veracity’s Verification awarded Lumio its highest ranking achievable in the categories of Accessibility and Student Engagement.
The Veracity Verification is a rigorous, third-party product assessment conducted by expert educators – called Guardians – to provide reliable, transparent, and unbiased evidence that connects school district staff with verified technologies – informing sound purchasing decisions and accelerating the path to student success.
Lumio scored 5 out of a maximum score of 5 in Accessibility with Veracity Guardians highlighting the integration with Microsoft’s Immersive Reader providing many options to support reading skills development, providing multi-sensory tools to help students read, and helping all students build reading comprehension and confidence in their skills. The ability to change languages on the platform through simply adjusting web browser settings, and the translation features within Immersive Reader was also highly recognized. Lastly, the ability to record audio content and embed videos for learners who require those modes of communication topped the educators’ scorecard.
In addition, Lumio ranked highest in Student Engagement across all digital lesson solutions currently verified in Veracity’s Marketplace. Guardians noted students needed minimal support getting started with Lumio, teachers have access to a variety of pre-built lessons and unique and engaging games, and content is visually engaging while not overwhelming to the student. Teachers have a variety of options to engage students in active learning, as well as to get insight to that learning.
“Having this verification is incredibly important to us, and to our customers and users.” said Nicholas Svensson, SMART Technologies CEO. “With increasing focus in the market on certifications and proving the impact and outcomes from education technology, we are proud that Lumio has achieved this verification and these high scores from an independent evaluation. It tells us we’re on the right track and can help let our prospective customers know why Lumio is a great investment.”
“We take feedback into account at every stage of our product development.” Noted Dan McMahon, Vice President of Product for Lumio. “The input and scoring from the Veracity Guardians will feed directly into our product roadmap so that we can continue to make updates and improvements that make Lumio the best digital learning tool out there.”
