2016 On the Rise Honorees Announced

Leaders in digital content, educational software, learning games and engineering courses top the list for this year’s On the Rise honorees. Organized by AAP’s PreK-12 Learning Group, On the Rise (OTR) recognizes professionals from the educational resource community who are early in their careers and show strong leadership skills.

Honorees are nominated by colleagues and peers in the industry who have seen firsthand the impact of their innovation and drive. Though they cover a wide swath of the industry, each has made an immediate and measurable impact on their organization and on the learning resource community as a whole.

2016 OTR Honorees:

Janice Chong - Teaching Garage

Johanna Wetmore - EvoText

Grant Hosford - codeSpark

Shanika Hope, PhD - Amazon Web Services (Nominated while at McGraw-Hill Education)

The 2016 On the Rise honorees receive complimentary registration to the Learning Group’s Content in Context conference in Philadelphia, where they will be recognized on Tuesday, June 7.
