The Mom’s Choice Awards Names School Zone’s Anywhere Teacher® Online Learning Destination Among the Best in Family-Friendly Products

School Zone Publishing is honored to announce that its Anywhere Teacher® online learning destination has earned the prestigious Gold Mom’s Choice Award®. Having been rigorously evaluated by a panel of MCA evaluators, Anywhere Teacher is deemed to be among the best products for families.

GRAND HAVEN, Mich (April 24, 2017) — The Mom’s Choice Awards® has named Anywhere Teacher as among the best in family-friendly media, products, and services. The MCA evaluation process uses a proprietary methodology in which entries are scored on a number of elements including production quality, design, educational value, entertainment value, originality, appeal, and cost.

“We are thrilled to earn the Mom’s Choice Awards Honoring Excellence Seal of Approval,” says Jonathan Hoffman, president and CEO of School Zone. He adds, “We put considerable resources into designing Anywhere Teacher. It connects kids with a huge variety of choices—books, games, videos, flash cards, music, and more, all in a safe, secure, ad-free environment that makes it worry-free for parents.”

To be considered for an award, each entrant submits samples for testing—in this case, URL and login information. Entries are matched to evaluators in the MCA database. Evaluators are bound by a strict code of ethics not only to ensure objectivity, but also to ensure that the evaluation is free from manufacturer influence. The five evaluations are submitted to the MCA Executive Committee for final review and approval.

“Our aim is to introduce families and educators to best-in-class products and services, explains Dawn Matheson, Executive Directors of the Mom’s Choice Awards. “We have a passion to help families grow emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Parents and educators know that products and services bearing our seal of approval are high-quality and also a great value. The MCA evaluation program is designed to incorporate the expertise of scientists, physicians and other specialists, but we also engage parents, children, educators, and caregivers because they are experts in knowing what is best for their families.”
