BOSTON - Learning technology company Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) today announced that two of its connected solutions, Writable® and Amira ™, have received honors from EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market.

In the third annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards, digital writing tool Writable was selected as 'Online Education Solution of the Year.' Writable can be used with any ELA program and aligns directly with the curriculums of HMH programs such as Collections, HMH Into Reading, HMH Into Literature,English 3D and HMH Social Studies.

Amira received its second consecutive Breakthrough award for 'Best Language Learning Tool of the Year.'Amira, the first-of-its-kind voice AI-based reading tutor for students, is already used in 300 school districts across the U.S. and can be used with HMH's Into Reading to connect fluency assessment directly to relevant core literacy content.

'It is an honor to be recognized by EdTech Breakthrough for our work in supporting students and teachers with digital-first, connected solutions,' said Matthew Mugo Fields, EVP and general manager of supplemental and intervention solutions at HMH. 'This important recognition underscores the value of our strategic focus on delivering positive outcomes from K-12 learners and educators. As we focus on the future of education, solutions like Writable and Amira are critical drivers for success in remote, face-to-face and hybrid learning environments.'

Writable is a digital writing tool that helps teachers scaffold and motivate students to become purposeful, proficient writers. With hundreds of customizable assignment templates and district or state-level benchmark assessments, Writable helps teachers strengthen their writing instruction while saving time on prep and feedback. Revision recommendations and feedback on grammar, syntax and originality is delivered to students in real-time to guide them earlier in the writing process. Its self-review, anonymous peer review, audio and video feedback tools give teachers flexibility in grading, while building a community of writers in the classroom.

Amira is the culmination of 20+ years of reading research and applied reading science from leading universities and researchers from Carnegie Mellon University, Johns Hopkins University, and University of Texas Health Sciences. Evidence supporting Amira's effectiveness includes more than 100 published research papers and is considered 'gold standard.' Amira also detects dyslexia with 95% accuracy in grades K-3, giving teachers comprehensive support for early intervention for students with disabilities in reading.
