How Nominees Are Evaluated
Tech & Learning is looking for the brightest new products in the educational space – the tech that’s been turning heads and helping teachers and students to learn faster, easier, and more successfully than ever before.
Each nominee will have to answer the following questions:
- What specific problem does this product solve?
- How did your product exceptionally support teaching and learning in 2023?
- How does your product address the challenges facing education today?
So what does that mean in practice? It means our judges will be thinking about questions like:
- Is your product easy to use and include support for teachers as needed?
- Does your product simplify and enhance the teaching and learning experience?
- Is your product flexible to support both in-person and asynchronous online teaching and learning?
- How is your product unique compared to other products in the market?
- Can your product be easily integrated with other products being used in schools?
Tech & Learning's panel of educators and judges will evaluate each of these answers, along with the product descriptions, images and case studies. The panel will score each product on Ease of use, Value, Versatility, and Utility. Those products which score highly across the criteria will be named a winner in this year's Awards of Excellence: The Best of 2023.
Any company that has a product that supports innovative, effective teaching and learning which launched, relaunched or saw a significant upgrade or version introduced in 2023 is eligible.
Winning an Award of Excellence tells the industry that your product has been approved by the most important audience - the educators themselves. The top products will be selected and featured in a special edition of Tech & Learning magazine. In addition to promotion through Tech & Learning, winners will receive a winners package containing a range of assets, in addition to a full-licensed winners badge, to promote their success.
