Barcelona, Spain – 14 May 2009 – The IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS GLC) today announced the results of the world’s annual competition of high impact use of technology to support and enhance learning. The Learning Impact Awards (LIAs) recognize use of technology to improve learning across all education segments and in all regions of the world. The finalists were evaluated by an expert panel of judges and the attendees at the IMS annual Learning Impact conference and Summit on Global Learning Challenges. The Learning Impact conference brings together leaders from supplier, educational, and government organizations focused on improving access, affordability, and quality of education worldwide. This year’s conference featured record attendance of global leaders from 25 countries and six continents.

The LIA awards are unique in that they recognize the use of technology in context. Nominations include not only information about the technology but how it is used by an education provider.
