Three Tips for Winning a Tech&Learning Award of Excellence

To win a Tech&Learning Award of Excellence (AOE) isn't just a badge of participation. It is an endorsement that your product or service meets the standards of the most innovative edtech educators working in classrooms today. Since 1982, T&L has sought out and celebrated the best in education technology through the AOE. It used to be a simple review of speeds and feeds. Going forward, it won't be that easy. We want to know about how your product or service improves teaching and learning through hearing from those who have been using it.

To help with your application, here are 3 things to keep in mind when submitting:

  1. Variety of formats. Submissions can be provided in a number of ways—traditional case studies, video testimonials, podcast essays. Get creative!
  2. Tell a story. The nomination content is your chance to tell the story of how your product or service makes a difference in schools. Explain to the judges what makes your product/service unique or better than other available offerings.
  3. Make it real. Most importantly, we want to hear from the educators themselves. How this tech change teaching and learning on a day-to-day basis?
