RALEIGH, North Carolina, April 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Software and Information Industry Association has selected Jean-Maxa new online literacy program for the next generation of PreK-K teachers and learners, as a 2022 SIIA CODiE Award finalist in the Best PreK/Early Childhood Learning Solution category.
This category rewards the best digital product providing or supporting the learning of children aged 3 to 5. For 37 years, the SIIA CODiE Awards have recognized thousands of companies in the education and business technologies. Jean-Max is one of only three programs to be named a finalist in this category.
Jean-Max is built around non-fiction, interactive eBooks and informational videos that feature content-rich photography to foster a sense of wonder and meaning as children interact with images and text that put the world in their hands. Jean-Max provides this highly flexible and interactive digital content on a platform that provides equitable access and educational support to teachers, young learners and their families. Content is in English and Spanish, and families are supported with in-home guides and program resources.
This new program is John Jones Media’s inaugural product and is already making waves in the early childhood education market.
“High-quality early childhood education has the potential to positively impact the long-term health, social-emotional learning, and academic achievement of all young learners. That’s why we created Jean-Max“, Explain Jamie WestCEO of John Jones Media, the EdTech company behind Jean-Max.
The program develops oral language and vocabulary acquisition – the foundations of reading readiness – while expanding children’s worldview and preparing them for a lifetime of academic and digital learning. Currently, more than 50% of preschoolers of low socioeconomic status have moderate to severe language developmental delays.
Additionally, the pandemic has worsened reading readiness in young children, and many early childhood educators are working to mitigate its adverse effects. Jean-Max aims to close the literacy gap to help all children enter school on an equal footing.
