Welcome to District Administration®‘s second annual Top Ed Tech Products of the Year awards.
The goal is to spotlight the most innovative new solutions on the market that are helping district leaders meet the ever-evolving technology needs of their schools. And given our current pandemic-related climate and off-and-on distance learning, we also sought to identify products that were adapted or created to address this situation.

This year, we received about 130 submissions. Our panel reviewed each one, narrowed the list, watched demos, reviewed and trimmed the list again before deciding on these 15 products as the best of the best.
To be eligible for the honor, tools must have been developed within the last year and be generally available last fall. Submissions were judged on their innovation in the ed-tech space, with particular attention to how the tools are breaking new ground, how much value they add to education, how intuitive they are for users, and whether they deliver what they promise.
As always, we encourage you to perform your own due diligence before making any investments.
