Awarded by the Academy!
Mussila is pleased to announce that we have been honored with the Academics’ Choice Award, a prestigious seal of educational quality, reserved only for the best mind-building media and toys. The independent Academics’ Choice Awards program and its seal of excellence are recognized worldwide by consumers and educational institutions as a mark of genuinely effective learning tools that stimulate the mind and provide the potential for the student to fully develop higher-order thinking skills.
Mussila is a winner of the Academics’ Choice 2020, Award in the Smart Media category. The Academics’ Choice Advisory Board consists of leading thinkers and graduates from Princeton, Harvard, George Washington University, and other reputable educational institutions. Product-appropriate volunteer reviewers, combined with the brainpower of the Board, determine the coveted winners. Entries are judged by category (i.e. mobile app, toy, book, website, magazine, etc.), subject area, and grade level, and evaluated based on standardized criteria rooted in constructivist learning theory.
The full list of winners is posted online at www.AcademicsChoice.com. The hundreds of submitted products that are not chosen by the Academics’ Choice Awards team (and many that are chosen) are donated to a variety of worthy charities and other organizations across the globe. About Academics’ Choice™: Academics’ Choice™ helps consumers find exceptional brain-boosting material.
Academics’ Choice is the only international awards program designed to bring increased recognition to publishers, manufacturers, independent authors, and developers that aim to stimulate cognitive development. A volunteer panel of product-appropriate judges, including parents, educators, scientists, artists, doctors, nurses, librarians, students, and children, evaluate submissions based on educational benefits such as higher-order thinking skills, character building, creative play, durability, and originality. Only the genuine “mind-builders” are recognized with the coveted Academics’ Choice Award™.
“I loved the incremental and sequential nature of this product. As a teacher, I recognize just how thoughtfully and intentionally each lesson was designed. The step by step methodology truly helps children to absorb the material, rather than rush through it. The repetition helps cement the lesson while building the child’s confidence”.
“The auditory and visual cues working in conjunction are incredible. If all of the education worked this way, our children would grow in their comprehension by leaps and bounds. This is an app that was created by people who truly understand how children learn. Let me see it. Let me hear it. Let me try. Repeat. (I’m slow clapping you from my chair. Truly well done.)”
“This app is something my kids WANT to do. They want to learn about music. They want to play and create. And the best part? After having practiced a song in the Play portion of the app, they want to run to our real piano, and see if they have truly learned how to play the song. And you know what? It works”.
“This is hands-down one of the best apps I’ve ever reviewed”.
