Honored products from this year include innovative applications that break new ground as well as those that added significant enhancements to proven education tools.

Congratulations!”

Entries were divided into two categories: New Products and Best Upgraded Products. Winning selections include software, apps and web-based products, as well as hardware and AV tools. Among the high-quality offerings being honored are resources addressing management, safety, communication, differentiated learning, assessment, and other key areas in education.
