2024 Finalists & Winners

THE EDTECH AWARDS 2024 | Future Focused For the Win

Warm and hearty congratulations to all The EdTech Awards 2024 finalists and winners! Very, very well done! 

The barriers you’ve overcome in the last few years to make it to where you are today — well, that’s cause for celebration!

Depending on how far back you’d like to go, the bumpy ride might have gone something like this: a global pandemic, hybrid learning, rapidly changing post-secondary models, an increasingly remote-based workforce, shifting economic realities, a generative AI paradigm shift, and on and on. 

The whole of education—from K-12, higher education, and workforce learning sectors—is currently in flux. With various forces at work and an accelerated digital transformation in play, as the saying goes, the best way to predict the future is to invent it.

The innovators, leaders, and trendsetters of education technology are doing just that. With a future-focused bent, a purposeful movement, and a true learning and growth mindset, they are not waiting but leading the way into the future by creating it now.

The world’s largest awards program dedicated to edtech, The EdTech Awards from EdTech Digest, recognizes outstanding contributions in transforming education through technology to enrich the lives of learners everywhere. To the fierce, persistent and indefatigable innovators, leaders, and trendsetters of edtech—we salute you!
