Sibelius Products Shortlisted for Three BESA Educational Resources Awards
Groovy Music and Auralia 3 Nominated for Prestigious UK Accolades
London, 13 February 2007 – Sibelius Software today announce that Groovy Music, the groundbreaking primary music software, and Auralia 3, the world’s best-selling aural training software, have been nominated in this year’s Education Resource Awards (ERAs). The ERAs are organized by BESA, the British Educational Suppliers Association, and are renowned among teaching communities across the world for setting the standards in educational resources.
Sibelius Groovy Music is a series of three animated programs that make teaching music to primary-school children easy and fun. All three Groovy Music products have been nominated for this year’s much sought-after Innovation Award. In addition, Groovy Jungle – the product in the Groovy Music series that spans the 7-9 age range - has been nominated separately in the highly competitive Education Resources: Primary ICT category.
Auralia 3, the world’s leading interactive software for ear training and aural tests, has been shortlisted for the Education Resources: Secondary ICT award, beating off competition from hundreds of educational software and hardware suppliers from around the UK. Auralia 3 is developed by Australian-based software firm Rising Software and distributed exclusively by Sibelius around the world. The product was also nominated for this year’s BETT Awards
Sibelius Software MD Jeremy Silver commented, “We are delighted that Groovy Music and Auralia have been short listed for these prestigious awards. We collaborate with a wide range of experts from around the world to present a substantial body of educational content in these products and we have been very pleased by the positive reaction of music teachers.”
The Awards, which are organised by Nexus Media Communications, publishers of Specialist Schools Review magazine, and the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA), highlight the quality and diversity of educational products and resources, excellent educational establishments and the most dedicated members of the teaching profession and supplies industry, all working together to encourage the very best in education. Now in their ninth successful year, what makes these Awards unique is that they focus on the resources, services and people that really make a practical impact on learning and the day-to-day work of the teachers in the classroom.
The winners of the Education Resources Awards 2007 will be announced at a gala event to be held in Birmingham, at the National Motorcycle Museum on 23 March 2007.
