Prodigy Education has been named Adaptive Learning Solution Provider of the Year for its popular math and English games in the 6th annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards, an accolade which reinforces the company’s leadership position and innovation in game-based learning. 

The awards program recognizes the very top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market and this year attracted thousands of nominations from over 17 different countries throughout the world.

“Prodigy works because it makes learning fun for students by turning tailored math and English practice into an adventure,” said Steve Johansson, Managing Director of EdTech Breakthrough. “The way in which math and English are taught impacts how well students learn. Prodigy is fusing fun and engaging gameplay with standards-aligned educational content that can be tailored to a teacher's current lesson plans in 30 seconds or less, making them our choice for 2024 Adaptive Learning Solution Provider of the Year.”

Prodigy’s games, Prodigy Math and Prodigy English, include adaptive algorithms to ensure students remain in the zone of proximal development, keeping them challenged while avoiding frustration. Teachers can easily align the in-game content to what’s being taught in class, while also being able to see how students are progressing, and where more help may be needed. 

“Prodigy is so much more than just a game, and we’re thrilled this award recognizes the enormous value provided to almost a million teachers every school year,” said Rohan Mahimker, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Prodigy. “Making learning as fun as playing a video game is a great motivator for students. But beneath that, Prodigy has shown to be an incredible classroom assistant for teachers, enabling them to set engaging assessments, spot learning gaps, and motivate and challenge their students to develop a growth mindset at all levels.”

The mission of the EdTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of educational technology categories, including Student Engagement, School Administration, Adaptive Learning, STEM Education, Remote Learning, Career Preparation and many more. 

Prodigy is available at zero cost to educators, with ALL educational content in Prodigy Math and Prodigy English also available for free for everyone. This unrivaled access is made possible thanks to optional parent memberships, which help families connect more closely with their child’s learning journey while providing students with extra gameplay features that can boost engagement. This model also means there is no third-party advertising on our platforms, with no selling or leasing of student data.
