FINALISTS REVEALED FOR THE EDTECH AWARDS 2018

 Top leaders, innovators, and trendsetters announced to millions interested in creating a better future for learning with the help of technology.

 April 12, 2018, Indianapolis, Indiana.  The finalists for The EdTech Awards 2018 have been announced today to a global online audience of millions of educators, technologists, students, parents, and policymakers interested in creating a better future for education. Finalists have been selected from thousands of entries.

Standard For Success, a leader in employee evaluation software, has been named as a finalist in the Cool Tools Awards for Administrative Solution and District Data Solution.

Now in its 8th year, the EdTech Awards program is the largest and most competitive recognition program in all of education technology, recognizing the biggest names in edtech – and those who soon will be.

“We celebrate who’s who and what’s next in edtech,” said Victor Rivero, who as Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest, oversees the awards program.

Contributions to Education

The EdTech Awards recognizes people in and around education for outstanding contributions in transforming education through technology to enrich the lives of learners everywhere.

“Standard For Success is honored to be chosen as a finalist for this prestigious award,” says Todd Whitlock, Co-Founder and CEO of Standard For Success.  “The EdTech Cool Tools Awards have a long-standing tradition of recognizing innovation in technology, and SFS is humbled to be representing the education space as a finalist.”.

Featuring edtech’s best and brightest, the annual program shines a spotlight on cool tools, inspiring leaders and innovative trendsetters across the K-12, Higher Education, and Skills and Workforce sectors.

The EdTech Awards recognize people—and the products they produce and lives they shape— with three main honors:

  • The EdTech Cool Tool Awards
  • The EdTech Leadership Awards, and
  • The EdTech Trendsetter Awards.

The EdTech Awards were established in 2010 to recognize, acknowledge, and celebrate the most exceptional innovators, leaders, and trendsetters in education technology. More than US$50 Billion has been invested worldwide across the global edtech landscape in just the last several years.

Past winners include Blackboard, ClassLink, Coursera, Discovery Education, DreamBox Learning, Edmodo, Edthena, Flipgrid, Freshgrade, Promethean, Scholastic, Schoology, SMART Technologies, Smithsonian Learning Lab, and zSpace, among others.

This year’s finalists and winners were narrowed from the larger field and judged based on various criteria, including: pedagogical workability, efficacy and results, support, clarity, value and potential.

Victor Rivero, who as Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest, oversees The EdTech Awards, said:

“In this age of rapidly accelerating technological growth, it might be easy to lose sight of what moves everything forward: the indomitable power of the human spirit. But in no other field is the human spirit more alive than education, where educators and supporting technologists are literally shaping our future. The work of the educator is often undervalued and overlooked, but educators and technologists supporting them play a leading role in our world.”.
