Irish educational technology firm Wriggle Learning is embarking on 2018 as the Microsoft 2017-2018 Windows and Devices Partner of the Year, having won the accolade at the close of last year in Washington D.C. at the Microsoft Inspire Conference. Since the company was established in 2012, the number of schools on the Wriggle digital learning programme has doubled each year reaching 250 schools last year. Wriggle Learning is targeting 60% growth with two new brands that will focus on collaborating with schools in the primary and third level sector.

The Microsoft Partner Awards received over 2,800 nominations. This was split over 115 countries with 34 global award categories. Wriggle Learning was recognised for their Windows and Device Partnership with Microsoft in Ireland with an 85% sales growth year on year since the Wriggle brand was established five years ago.

Formally the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, Microsoft Inspire is the tech giant’s largest annual event for Microsoft partners all around the globe.

Dr Kevin Marshall –  Microsoft Educational for Microsoft said:

“What makes Wriggle such a success is that they’re not just selling a device into a school. They’re training teachers, educating parents and enhancing how students learn using technology as a tool in the classroom. Thus, building on the digital journey that Microsoft inspires to.”

Paul Dooley CEO of Wriggle Learning commented:

“This is an incredible achievement for a partner that has been selling devices for such a short period”.
