The nomination period for the fourth annual EdTech Digest Awards Recognition Program honoring tools, trendsetters and leaders in the education and technology sector is open for entries but will close on September 30, 2013. Entry is relatively fast and there is still time to enter. The distinguished awards program recognizes outstanding solutions—and the best and brightest minds—in education and technology. Past winners of the EdTech Digest Awards Program have included, among others: Pearson, Epson and McGraw-Hill, as well as emerging solutions providers Panarea Digital, StudySync and StudyBlue. This year’s program features 50 categories to enter, including best new product or service; mobile app; academic gaming solution, emerging technology solution, professional development solution; product or service setting a trend, leader setting a trend and many, many more. A distinguished panel of industry influencers and veterans will conduct this year’s evaluation proceedings. “This year, we’ve extended the judging period to allow judges more time to review the quality of the entries,” says Victor Rivero, who oversees the program as Editor in Chief of EdTech Digest. “In the history of modern education, there has never been a better time for modernizing education,” says Rivero. “A confluence of factors — the right time, technology and people — is making for a stellar year in edtech. There’s a lot of talent and quality out there, and we look forward to showcasing it.” The program is comprised of the Cool Tool, Trendsetter and Leadership Awards. All entries fall into a subcategory under one of these three main categories. Cool Tool awards recognize new, emerging and established technology solutions for education; the Trendsetter awards include notable people or products shaping the space, and the EdTech Leadership awards recognize outstanding forward-thinking contributions to learning and technology. “We’re excited to have a closer look at the tools, trendsetters and leaders driving education forward,” said Rivero. There is still time to enter. For an entry form and full details, write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
