Think you have an awesome new tech solution?
Education leaders looking to explore their options among the rapidly growing education-tech marketplace — which has grown even more crowded in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic — often turn to industry-leading efforts like FETC to sort out the most viable tools for their organizations.
This year, District Administration and FETC will honor the best of the best of new ed tech solutions with our “Top Ed Tech Products of the Year” awards. It’s becoming increasingly clear that education technology will play a vital role in helping leaders meet the needs of their disrupted schools, so now more than ever, it’s important to spotlight the innovative products helping fuel educational success.
To be eligible for the honor, tools must have been developed or updated within the last year and be generally available by October 2020. Submissions will be judged on the solutions’ innovation in the ed tech space, with particular attention to how the tools are breaking new ground.
Solution providers can submit their applications through the FETC website, along with a non-refundable entry fee of $50. A panel of experts assembled by DA and conference organizers will select up to 40 leading entries to provide live demonstrations for the judges; from there, they will narrow the submissions to up to 20 winners, which will be designated “Top Ed Tech Products of the Year.” The solutions will be profiled in DA, on districtadministration.com and highlighted across our social-media platforms.
Conference organizers also will showcase the top-rated products at the event, Jan. 26-29, which will be held virtually and is free to attend. Providers will be invited to perform demonstrations of their solutions at a special session that is expected to draw hundreds of education and tech leaders, including potential buyers, and they will also be included in promotional materials for the event.
The deadline for submissions is Nov. 30. Providers that move on to the demonstration phase of the judging process will be notified on or about Dec. 15.
