Intelitek CoderZ equips students with fundamental STEM skills through an interactive online platform
Intelitek today announced that its online coding program, CoderZ, was chosen as a finalist in the 2019 Bett Awards program.
This year marks the 34th year of the Bett Show, a celebration of the inspiring creativity and innovation that can be found throughout technology for education. As the first industry show of the year in the education technology landscape, this year it expects to bring together 850 leading companies, 103 exciting new edtech start-ups and nearly 35,000 attendees from 131 countries within the global education community.
Finalists were selected by a panel of education professionals and experts in their particular information and communications technology (ICT) area who reviewed the submissions that were entered and judged the products and services based on the extent to which they have excelled in ICT provision and support for nurseries, schools, colleges and special schools alike with a clear focus on what works in the classroom. The British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA) acted as Chair of judges, overseeing the impartiality and fairness of the judging.
CoderZ was named a finalist for Best International Digital Education Resource. The powerful, easy to use online platform teaches students in grades 6-12 valuable STEM skills such as coding, robotics and physical computing that will help their careers and prepare them for college. CoderZ has a fun interface that utilizes an online code editor catered to both beginners and experts, offering a simple, Scratch-like language called Blockly for new coders or allowing more advanced students to start working directly with Java code. The program is currently being used around the globe in a series of Cyber Robotics Coding Competitions (CRCC) with the intention of putting the world of coding and robotics in the hands of all students.
“Being named a finalist in this year’s Bett Awards is an immense honor for Intelitek,” said Ido Yerushalmi, CEO of Intelitek. “CoderZ successfully provides students with the detailed guidance and instruction they need to learn and understand programming, and we’re proud to be recognized on this international stage.”
The winners of the 2019 Bett Awards will be announced at the award ceremony at the Troxy in London on Jan. 23, 2019.
