A salute to edtech’s best and brightest innovators, leaders, and trendsetters!
Finalists and winners for The EdTech Awards 2022 have been announced to a worldwide audience of educators, technologists, students, parents, and policymakers interested in building a better future for learners and leaders in the education and workforce sectors. For the first time, the Drop Anywhere Lab Two-part Experience by Learning Undefeated was chosen as a finalist in the STEM (science, tech, engineering, math) solution awards category.
Celebrating its 12th year, the US-based program is the world’s largest recognition program for education technology, recognizing the biggest names in edtech – and those who soon will be. “As events unfold on the world stage that seem to inch ever closer to a precipice unknown, we are reminded that the leaders and innovators of education technology have always worked on the edge,” said Victor Rivero, who as Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest, oversees the program.
The EdTech Awards recognizes people for outstanding contributions in transforming education through technology to enrich the lives of learners everywhere. Featuring edtech’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 future-focused work they do is inspired by the infinite potential of all people to learn and thrive. It’s pushed forward by the human spirit. It’s the light that even through the darkest times always shines through,” Rivero said.
Learning Undefeated’s two-part Drop Anywhere Lab student experience – which takes place inside one of three custom-built shipping containers – uses immersive reality, light, sound, touchscreen walls, and interactive gameplay to build understanding of chemistry concepts. Through interactive game play and team collaboration, students view and collect information about a reaction. As a group, students make claims and use evidence to form arguments as to whether a presented reaction was physical or chemical. The experience uses projection mapping and interactive screens to provide students with an immersive game experience.
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.
