According to AASL, Lifeliqe is considered to be “the best of the best” among current educational apps, when recognised in STEM category.
“America has always depended on school libraries playing a leading role in introducing new technology to students. A new tech wave is starting to roll over our heads and libraries are taking a lead role again. It’s immersive learning where students are entering learning experiences in virtual reality. Librarians are America’s lighthouses, guiding students as they explore new worlds in their quest for information,” said Mark Andersen, Lifeliqe co-founder and VP for growth in his acceptance speech.
“The apps recognized as Best Apps for Teaching & Learning are of exceptional value to inquiry-based teaching and learning as embodied in AASL’s Standards for the 21st-Century Learner. Recognized apps foster the qualities of innovation, creativity, active participation, and collaboration and are user friendly to encourage a community of learners to explore and discover,” said Jennifer Habley from AASL.
