“Im very excited that has been recognized by SIIA as a 2021 CODIE Finalist, in the Best Advanced Reading/Writing/Literature Instructional Solution category. It was an idea that we had 6 years ago, to empower young learners with the digital learning tools to improve their Arabic language and reading skills and save the Arabic language, to reality.

I am equally proud of our team for their creativity, hard work, perseverance, and, more than anything else, teamwork, to build the leading #arabiclanguage learning and levelled reading platform for children around the world”. says TechKnowledge CEO Mohamed Al Bagdadhi.

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry's only peer-recognized awards program. Educators and administrators serve as judges and conduct the first-round review of all education nominees. Their scores determine the SIIA CODiE Award finalists which accounts for 80% of the overall score. SIIA members then vote on the finalist products and the scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.
