Readers of BusinessCloud – the online technology publication – and an independent judging panel have together decided the 50 companies blazing a technology trail in the education sector.
The EdTech 50 – supported by digital transformation experts Sputnik Digital – celebrates businesses of all sizes creating original tech for education and workplace development.
“Our inaugural EdTech 50 ranking is the latest in our innovation series across sectors and a showcase for companies with truly ground-breaking solutions for education,” said Jonathan Symcox, editor, BusinessCloud.
“It’s a privilege to shine a light on a sector which is fast evolving through technology.”
Andy Nicol, MD of Sputnik Digital, added: “In the year that schools return post-COVID, and Apple and Facebook warm up their AR/VR propositions, it’s clear that e-learning and EdTech are here to stay.
“Training embedded into employees’ workflow is the future of professional development. It’s great to see so many exciting companies already delivering those services into the workplace.”
BusinessCloud called on its readers to vote for companies from the 100-strong shortlist and saw more than 2,200 votes pour in.
A combination of these votes and choices from an independent judging panel determined the top 50.
The judging panel was comprised of:
• Vikki Liogier, national head of EdTech and digital skills, Education and Training Foundation
• Rachel Vecht, founder, Educating Matters
• Sir Ian Livingstone, games pioneer and founder, Livingstone Academy
• Jonathan Symcox, editor, BusinessCloud
