“We are thrilled to be recognized by EdTech Digest and included among such admirable companies,” says SchoolStatus founder and CEO Russ Davis. “Smart communication tools have been critical in the past year as the lives of teachers and parents have overlapped. Educators deserve communication tools that serve their busy lives. We are proud to provide that.”
The EdTech Awards recognizes people in and around education for outstanding contributions in transforming education through technology to enrich the lives of learners everywhere.
“The worldwide pandemic put education and training to the test, but remote learning and working—in many unexpected ways—ultimately brought us closer,” said Victor Rivero, who as Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest, oversees the program.
“Trying times revealed strengths and capabilities of people and workability of products. Leaders and innovators with their tools and techniques worked hard to keep the learning world connected to knowledge and each other. As so many have shown, nothing can stop the human spirit—and we continue to move forward,” Rivero said.
Celebrating its 11th year, the US-based program is the largest recognition program in all of education technology, recognizing the biggest names in edtech – and those who soon will be.
