Congratulations to Laura Henderson (TEC 20 member) and her Epiphany Learning Systems team for winning the People’s Choice Wisconsin Innovation Award, 2015.
Epiphany Learning™, an edtech company dedicated to making personalized learning a reality in classrooms throughout the world, has won the inaugural People’s Choice Wisconsin Innovation Award. The Wisconsin Innovation Awards (WIA) highlight and honor the development of groundbreaking and innovative ideas in a variety of Wisconsin-based business sectors. Led by a steering committee of business, community and entrepreneurial leaders, the second annual WIA ceremony took place August 18, 2015 at the Discovery World in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Over 170 businesses were nominated for this year’s WIA’s, from which 33 finalists, including Epiphany Learning, were selected – in multiple rounds of judging – by a panel of 18 industry experts. The finalists were organized into nine categories, and, for the first time, WIA added a People’s Choice Award. Each finalist was eligible for the new People’s Choice honor, and the winner was determined by the highest number of total votes cast by the general public over social media.
“Being recognized with the inaugural People’s Choice Wisconsin Innovation Award is an absolute honor,” states Laura Henderson, founder and CEO of Epiphany Learning. “The Epiphany Learning Personalized Learning Application was launched less than one year ago and is now enabling widescale personalized learning implementation in school districts throughout Wisconsin and beyond. Receiving the People’s Choice Award is exciting because it speaks to the power of our application as well as the importance of the personalized learning movement. Our goal is to leverage technology to ensure all students are heard by putting the learner back in the center of their education; and this award shows how powerful and important this is for the future of education.”
