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

In announcing the finalists and winners, EdTech Digest says, “In honoring cool tools, inspiring leaders, and innovative trendsetters in education, we do so with a sense of excitement, but also a sense of responsibility. Dream-to-reality makers are awesome to behold. But the stakes are high because these honorees are shaping our future. Perhaps more so than in any other sector, in education there are mission-driven companies and there are purpose-driven people. For what mission, and for what purposes committed individuals or dedicated groups of people help advance the rest of us, is what we honor and celebrate here.”
