Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Learn Fresh is pleased to announce that the NBA Math Hoops App has been honored with a 2022 Academics’ Choice Brain Toy Award, a seal of educational quality for the best mind-building media and toys. The independent Academics’ Choice Awards program and its seal of excellence are recognized worldwide by consumers and educational institutions as a mark of genuinely effective learning tools that stimulate the mind and provide potential for the student to fully develop higher-order thinking skills.
"We’re excited that NBA Math Hoops has been selected for a 2022 Academics’ Choice Award!” shared Nick Monzi, Learn Fresh CEO & Co-Founder. “The NBA Math Hoops App is the product of a collaboration between Learn Fresh and our developer, Clevyr, to replicate the core mechanism of the physical NBA Math Hoops board game in a digital setting. The result delivers high-quality, student-led virtual learning and rounds out the suite of tools that bring the NBA Math Hoops program to life in classrooms and out-of-school programs across the country.”
The NBA Math Hoops App is a winner of the Academics’ Choice Brain Toy Award in the mobile app category. The Academics' Choice Advisory Board consists of leading thinkers and graduates from Princeton, Harvard, George Washington University, and other reputable educational institutions. Entries are judged by category (i.e. mobile app, toy, book, website, magazine, etc.), subject area, and grade level, and evaluated based on standardized criteria rooted in constructivist learning theory. The full list of winners is available online at www.AcademicsChoice.com.
