The fast evolution of technology transformed the way students learn and educators teach. Due to this rapid growth, the EdTech sector keeps on growing, and many innovative companies and people with great ideas came in to answer the needs of a 21st-century education system.
But how do we know which ones are the best, which ones should we trust? There are several factors that we can take into account. One of them would be the EdTech award ceremonies, that are meant to help teachers, schools, and even parents answer the above question.
The Tech Edvocate Awards selected this year’s top EdTech companies, products and people, to determine whose performance has a positive influence in today’s education system. The finalists and winners were ultimately determined by a panel comprised of two EdTech thought leaders, two PreK-12 teachers, one college professor, two K-12 administrators, one college administrator and two PreK-12 parents.
We’re excited to announce that NUITEQ’s Director of Strategy, Dr. Edward Tse, has been awarded the 2018 Tech Edvocate Award for Best Global EdTech Leader. We believe this is partly because of his passion and continuous desire to make EdTech accessible to students around the globe.
Dr. Edward Tse’s passion is using research to make education fun. He holds over 50 Utility and Design patent filings and is the primary inventor of the first MultiTouch Table Product for Education: The SMART Table. He uses research to apply emerging technology trends to education so teachers can spend more time connecting with students and less time on content delivery.
His YouTube channel, Ed on Ed Tech, shows how current technologies such as Memojis and Google Duplex will impact both work and education. He has traveled extensively in Africa, Asia, Europe, as well as North and South America to gain first-hand experience of Education around the world and to share those experiences with teachers, parents, and policymakers on his YouTube channel.
At leading EdTech conferences he connects with Keynote speakers to share best-practices in teaching and apply them to the Product Roadmap at NUITEQ. As Director of Strategy at NUITEQ, Dr. Edward Tse focuses on improving learning using the most popular Educational videos and enabling creative expression using lightweight tools on mobile devices.
“Honestly, the YouTube channel wouldn’t be possible without the amazing software that NUITEQ produces, the travel connections from our sales team, and the promotion of our marketing team. The award is really just a reflection of the great work that my team does every day.
I never thought that I'd receive this award against such incredible EdTech Authors and CEOs. Thank you so much for your support of Ed on EdTech. I look forward to sharing more first-hand educational experiences with you!”, said Dr. Edward Tse, Director of Strategy, NUITEQ®.
