The Education Technology Industry Network (ETIN) of the SIIA and LRP Conferences have announced Cogent Education: Interactive Cases, Inner Voice and LightUp as the winners of the Goldfish Tank Innovators Competition during the 2016 Future of Education Technology Conference (FETC).
“This competition asks the educators in the audience to vote for the product that they would most likely use in the classroom. This year’s three-way tie vote illustrates how difficult it can be choose among the engaging and relevant digital tools that entrepreneurs are bringing to the ed tech market,” said Karen Billings, vice president and managing director for ETIN. “Cogent Education, Inner Voice and LightUp have the potential to give students new, rich learning experiences.”
“The Goldfish Tank competition is one of the highlights of the Incubator Pavilion at FETC,” said Rebecca McKenna, vice president Global Events and publisher at LRP Publications. “The Incubator Pavilion, co-sponsored by ETIN-SIIA, FETC and the National Science Foundation, provides attendees the opportunity to explore emerging pre-K-12 technologies while giving innovators the opportunity to hear real-time, critical feedback from tech decision makers and future buyers.”
Cogent Education also took the prize at the 2015 competition.
