Illuminate Education’s eduCLIMBER Named EdTech Breakthrough’s Learning Analytics Solution of the Year

Illuminate’s MTSS management tool recognized in 2020 EdTech Breakthrough program

“Educators work tirelessly to support all of their students, and we’re proud to be able to offer a tool that enables them to better serve the whole child,” said Christine Willig, CEO of Illuminate Education. “We’re thrilled that eduCLIMBER has been recognized as a solution of the year, and are eager to continue sharing its benefits with educators everywhere.”

The mission of the EdTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the creativity, hard work and success of companies, technologies and products in the field of educational technology.

Selected for its robust data analytics capabilities, eduCLIMBER enables educators to gather academic, behavioral and social-emotional data and create easy-to-understand visualizations. Schools and districts can import, analyze and interact with student data, receive notifications to transform it into information and create action plans within the platform to drive student success. eduCLIMBER can be used at the student, classroom, school, and district levels.

“This system has meant a lot for our school, especially our students,” said Phill Klamm, principal at Walworth School District in Wisconsin. “It’s very motivating for children to see their progress, like when a kid comes in and asks specifically to do something because they saw a piece of data. Because of eduCLIMBER, our gaps are closing and we’re seeing so many positives.”

Partners Jaime and Matt Harris created eduCLIMBER to simplify the process of collecting and evaluating student data. Since its inception, eduCLIMBER has served as a unique tool that enables educators to turn insights into actions. In 2017, Illuminate Education acquired eduCLIMBER, extending the companies’ ability to provide efficient and accurate data to schools and districts.
