Sing it with me: “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!”
Sure, there are the holidays, of course. But it’s also when
Tech&Learning celebrates the best edtech leaders and
gear of 2013.
Over the past eight months, our panel of judges put
more than one hundred different products through
some serious due diligence in order to make it to these pages.
Likewise, our Leader of the Year selections were culled from a huge
contingent of candidates submitted from across the country. (I’m
still reeling from reading all those spreadsheet cells!)
One word that consistently summarizes our winners year after
year is “innovation.” These awards are given not on the merits of the technology itself, but what
people have been able to do with it. When you read about Jo Welter in Allison Park, PA and Eva
Harvell in Pascagoula, MS, notice their
emphasis on the students over the tools,
the learning rather than tech. The same
goes for our judges’ comments in the
product categories. Speeds and feeds are
certainly important, but what makes this
hardware and software extraordinary
is how it improves the classroom
I would like to thank all of our judges
and staff who made this year’s selection
process go so smoothly. Interested in
becoming a judge for our 2014 contest?

Happy New Year!
