Outstanding Education Technology Products Saluted

NEW YORK, NY – (October 5, 2016) – Tech & Learning magazine today named 124 education technology products as winners in its prestigious 34-year-old recognition program. Honored software, hardware, network, App and Web products include innovative applications that break new ground as well as those that added significant enhancements to proven education tools. A panel of T&L advisors who tested hundreds of entries, chose the winners.

"Once again this year, the Tech & Learning judges examined hundreds of entries to select those products that were deemed worthy of our 2016 Award of Excellence. This wasn't just checking off spec sheets and surfing other people's reviews. Each product was handled and scored individually. Not an easy task." says Kevin Hogan, Editorial Director for NewBay Media's Tech & Learning Group. “These companies can be proud that our team of judges granted them their seal of approval."

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.

Please join us in congratulating the winners of the 2016 Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence. Look for detailed descriptions and judges' comments in the December/January Awards Issue.
