About The EdTech Awards
The EdTech Awards celebrate educators, technologists, students, parents, and policymakers interested in building a better future for learners and leaders in the education and workforce sectors.
Celebrating its 11th year, the U.S.-based program is the largest recognition program in all of education technology, recognizing the biggest names in edtech – and those who soon will be.
“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.
The EdTech Awards recognize people in and around education for outstanding contributions in transforming education through technology to enrich the lives of learners everywhere.
Featuring Ed Tech’s best and brightest, the annual program shines a spotlight on cool tools, inspiring leaders, and innovative trendsetters across the K-12, Higher Education, and Skills and Workforce sectors.
The EdTech Awards recognize people—and the products they produce and lives they shape— with three main honors:
- The EdTech Cool Tool Awards
- The EdTech Leadership Awards, and
- The EdTech Trendsetter Awards.
The full list of this year’s finalists and winners can be found here.
The EdTech Awards were established in 2010 to recognize, acknowledge, and celebrate the most exceptional innovators, leaders, and trendsetters in education technology.

This year’s finalists and winners were narrowed from the larger field and judged based on various criteria, including: pedagogical workability, efficacy and results, support, clarity, value, and potential.
Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest Victor Rivero said:
“After a year like no other—to all those innovators, leaders, and trendsetters in K-12, higher ed, and workforce staying connected, productive, persistent, and getting us closer despite all challenges: we salute you.”
