Sibelius Scores Two Nominations At The BETT Awards 2007
O-Generator and Auralia 3 fight off tough competition to be short-listed for these prestigious awards
5 December 2006 – SIBELIUS SOFTWARE is proud to announce that its market leading O-Generator and Auralia 3 music programs have been short-listed for one of the most sought after awards in the education industry: a BETT Award for Digital Content in the Secondary category. Having fought off tough competition from a variety of educational software and hardware suppliers from across the country, O-Generator and Auralia 3 have reached the prestigious awards shortlist for the annual BETT awards on 10th January 2007. The awards have become renowned among teaching communities across the world for setting the standards in Information Communication Technology (ICT).
O-Generator uses modern music genres to teach the fundamentals of music and composition. The program uses the contemporary musical instruments, sounds and styles that young students most relate to, and a ‘Virtual Music Teacher’ guides them through activities using simple language with a recorded voice-over, making it ideal for non–specialist teachers.
Auralia 3 is a comprehensive software program for ear training and aural tests. Perfect for schools, colleges, universities and anyone learning or teaching an instrument, Auralia's interactive tuition makes aural training easy and fun, guiding students through hundreds of graded exercises, and giving instant feedback.
“We are delighted that both O-Generator and Auralia 3 have been short-listed for the BETT Award for best Secondary Digital Content”, Says Jeremy Silver, MD of Sibelius Software. “The BETT Awards are unquestionably the benchmark for ICT product development and recognise and reward creativity, innovation and commitment in developing the highest quality and most effective educational ICT resources. We’re very proud that not one, but two of our products have been selected for the short-list.”
The Awards, one of the many highlights of the BETT 2007 education technology show (10-13 January 2007, Olympia, London, www.bettshow.co.uk), are run by EMAP Education, in association with the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA), EC&T magazine and the British Educational Communications and Technology Agency (Becta).
Ray Barker, Director of BESA and Joint Chair of the Judges, told us: “The BETT Awards provide that much needed link between the ICT industry and the teaching community. The BETT Awards also play a key role in demonstrating how ICT can be embedded into subjects across the curriculum. The year-on-year rise in entries illustrates how important the BETT Awards have become in the eyes of teachers and suppliers alike.”
