School District Superintendents Have Selected the Best Products in Today's EdTech Industry
NEW YORK, Dec. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Institute for Education Innovation (IEI), a national school superintendent think tank that serves as the bridge between district leaders and the K-12 industry to develop solutions to the greatest challenges in public education, is excited to announce the winners of its third annual Supes' Choice Awards.
Selected by a panel of K-12 superintendents from across the country, each awardee represents the shared goal of the edtech industry to resolve real-world challenges in the classroom and positively disrupt education. Each winning product, solution, or software was evaluated based on a commitment to student outcomes, innovation and ingenuity, client support, interactivity, and engagement. Winners were revealed at the Supes' Choice Awards Gala in New York City on Friday, December 8.

About the Institute for Education Innovation
Superintendents are defenders of our children's right to a high-quality public education and lead their teams toward effective, sustainable solutions to age-old problems. They must be at the center of discussions around when, where, and how innovation will affect teaching and learning. Many education solution providers, funders, researchers, and thought leaders are mission-driven: they do what they do to improve student outcomes. The Institute for Education Innovation bridges gaps between the individuals and organizations committed to seeing students succeed in school and life, creating a safe space for constructive problem-solving and innovative thinking. http://www.instituteforedinnovation.com.
