Cherrypicks, Subsidiary of NetDragon, Recognized by SIIA

- as Best Coding & Computational Thinking Solution

HONG KONG, 26 June 2019 -- (ACN Newswire) - NetDragon Websoft Holdings Limited ("NetDragon" or "the Company", Hong Kong Stock Code: 777), a global leader in building internet communities, is pleased to announce that Coding Galaxy, a game-based learning platform developed by Cherrypicks, a NetDragon subsidiary, was named the Best Coding & Computational Thinking Solution of 2019 as part of the annual Software & Information Industry Association ("SIIA") CODiE Awards.

The SIIA CODiE Awards have honored companies producing the most innovative software, education, information and media products for achieving excellence and innovation in technology around the world for over 30 years. A SIIA CODiE Award win is a prestigious honor, as each award winner is first reviewed by expert judges including educators and administrators whose evaluations determine the finalists. SIIA members then vote on the finalist products, and the scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.

Jason Chiu, CEO of Cherrypicks, commented, "Cherrypicks is incredibly honored and humbled that Coding Galaxy is acknowledged by the only peer-recognized competition in education and business technology, the SIIA CODiE Award for Best Coding & Computational Thinking Solution. As one of the select few winners of the prestigious SIIA CODiE Award that is also certified by Education Alliance Finland, a global quality standard for learning solutions, it validates our continuous efforts in making Coding Galaxy a one of a kind education platform for students to learn coding concepts and computational thinking through gamification."

Coding Galaxy is a certified educational quality, all-in-one computational thinking and coding education program which integrates the innovative use of mobile technology with effective pedagogy to transform the traditionally mundane learning experience into a creative and interactive one.

As a certified Edtech product by Education Alliance Finland, a global quality standard for learning solutions with Finnish educational expertise, Coding Galaxy provides an innovative and gamified learning approach to maximize learners' learning efficiency and effectiveness. The curriculum aligns with international education standards such as CSTA K-12 Computer Science Standards and emphasizes the development of general skills along with a computational thinking mindset.

Through two years of development, Coding Galaxy is the culmination of results from research in diverse areas, including learning behavior, teaching environment, pedagogy, technological development trends and more. The comprehensive online and offline solutions, including digital teaching plans, unplugged activities and teaching materials integrating with artificial intelligence (AI), analyze student performance and facilitate teachers in effectively improving their students' problem-solving ability and 4Cs skills (Collaboration, Communication, Creativity and Critical Thinking) to prepare them as "smart" citizens.

Powered by adaptive AI and knowledge graph, all learning content is tagged and linked with knowledge points in a knowledge graph. The smart analysis engine helps teachers grasp students' learning progress and pinpoint strengths and weaknesses with each learning concept. Teachers are provided with an overview of student performance to understand each student's weaknesses and strengths at a glance. A built-in early detection and alert system will also inform teachers of appropriate teaching intervention points, spot learning problems and provide personalized follow-ups to prevent students from going astray on the learning path and fill the learning gaps.

"The 2019 CODiE award winners represent the best of a new class of innovative products that are disrupting education and adding new efficiencies for educators and administrators. These exciting new products are opening doors for learners of all ages by developing and utilizing new technologies to respond to student and educator needs," said Jeff Joseph, SIIA President.
