For more than 25 years, Learning® magazine’s Teachers’ Choice Awards have spotlighted the very best in classroom-tested, teacher-recommended products. Teachers’ Choice is the only awards program that is exclusively judged by teachers in the classroom. Each year a team of teachers evaluates products for their quality, instructional value, ease of use and innovation, and names the standouts. Over the years, the program has grown to become one of the most recognized and prestigious awards in the educational market.
For the 2020 awards for the Classroom, 23 winners were chosen based on their scores from evaluations by a panel of teachers across the country.
