DALLAS, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kurzweil 3000 ®- firefly by Kurzweil Educational Systems ® has been recognized for making a positive difference in education by K–12 leaders who named it to District Administration magazine's "Readers' Choice Top 100 Products" for 2013.

The winners, selected by District Administration's editors from a record 1,800-plus nominations, were products that received the highest number of nominations and best descriptions from K–12 leaders. The "Readers' Choice Top 100 Products" have been announced online and in the December issue of District Administration.

Kurzweil 3000-firefly enables struggling students, including those with learning differences such as dyslexia and English language learners, to learn from the same content as their peers. Anchored in the principles of Universal Design for Learning, it supports the complex tasks of developing fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, writing, study skills, and strategies for test taking. Kurzweil 3000- firefly and the free companion iPad app provide access to any curriculum—anytime and anywhere.

"Recognition by the readers of District Administration magazine is an honor," said Alex Saltonstall, president of Kurzweil Educational Systems and IntelliTools ®. "This acknowledgment of Kurzweil 3000- firefly is especially gratifying because it comes from the educators who use our product in their classrooms. We are proud that Kurzweil 3000- firefly has made a difference in the lives of the students we all serve."

In recognizing the most innovative products, the annual District Administration "Readers' Choice Top 100 Products" award informs superintendents and other senior school district leaders about products their colleagues around the country are using to help their districts excel.

"The fact that we had a record number of readers participating in this recognition program is a testament to the interest that K12 leaders have in products for improving educational outcomes and operational efficiencies," says JD Solomon, District Administration's editorial director. "All of the honorees in our Top 100 program should be very proud of their achievement."
