Verso App, New K-12 Educational Tool, Earns Prestigious Award

Judge: ‘This tool can revolutionize collaborative learning environments’


SAN FRANCISCO and MELBOURNE, Victoria [Australia] – Nov. 20, 2014 – A new K-12 educational app, which is emerging in U.S. classrooms after earning considerable acclaim in Australia and other countries during its first year, has won a prestigious award in its home country. Verso app, which activates learning using authentic student voice as a driver for deeper, personalized learning, is the recipient of the “eLearning Excellence Award” as awarded by the eLearning Industry Association of Victoria, Australia.


Recently adopted by school districts in Texas and Pennsylvania, and already in use by 3,000 K-12 schools globally, the Verso app won in the competition’s K-12 category for its innovation and effectiveness in enhancing learning. One judge wrote of the Verso app, “This tool can revolutionize collaborative learning environments.”


Colin Wood, CEO for Verso Learning, accepted the honor and explained how the app’s unique features change the dynamics of the classroom. He said Verso supports teachers and allows students to learn more deeply through personalization and formative assessment, while encouraging critical thinking and giving every student a voice. The ultimate goal, Wood said, is to make teaching more responsive, collaborative, measured and effective.


The app is free, available through iTunes, Google Play and most popular browsers, and it works on any mobile device. Developed by top engineers from both Melbourne and San Francisco, Verso app was launched nearly a year ago in Australia.
