Multiple Discovery Education products have been honored with 2023 Back to School Awards from Tech & Learning. Tech & Learning’s Awards of Excellence program, “The Best Tools for Back to School,” is designed to help educators find the products and solutions that will support their work in any learning environment. Eligible products included hardware, software, curriculum, and more. Discovery Education is the worldwide edtech leader whose state-of-the-art digital platform supports learning wherever it takes place.
For over 42 years, the Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence have recognized exceptional products and services within education technology. For this competition, Tech & Learning sought nominations for products that offer school leaders versatility, value, and solutions to specific problems as they support innovative, effective teaching and learning.
“With ESSER funding coming to an end, and emerging tech like AI exploding into the market with little guidance as to how best to integrate this new technology into the classroom, it’s more important than ever to curate the many education products on the market to ensure your investments support innovative teaching and learning,” says Tech & Learning Content Director Christine Weiser. “Our judges chose the following nominated products based on their versatility, compatibility, value, and ability to help schools solve challenges and support continuous instruction. Congratulations to all of our winners.”
This year, two Discovery Education solutions were honored by the Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence Best Tools for Back to School in both the primary and secondary grade level categories:
