Boston, MA – July 5, 2022 – Texthelp, an international leader in literacy and digital learning tools for education, today announced that it was honored to receive two “Best of Show” awards from Tech & Learning, a leading publication in the education technology market, at the ISTELive 22 Conference held last week. The awards recognized the excellence of Texthelp’s two edtech tools, OrbitNote, a web app that makes PDFs more accessible from right inside the document, and Equatio, a digital tool that makes math and STEM classes more accessible and engaging for every student.
The “Best of Show” awards, presented by Tech & Learning, celebrate the products – and businesses behind each one – that are transforming education in schools around the world. Each year, Tech & Learning recognizes exhibitors at ISTELive who show the greatest promise to the industry, according to the U.S.'s most tech-savvy and knowledgeable educators.
“We are honored to receive this recognition from Tech & Learning for our efforts in creating solutions for transforming education,” said Martin McKay, Founder and CEO of Texthelp. “We've always understood that digital learning tools play a vital role in our constantly evolving education system. We dedicate significant time and resources to ensure we produce useful, innovative edtech tools that can be used by students and educators around the world. I’m grateful every day for the teams involved in designing, developing and promoting these products.”
At the Conference, Texthelp announced the upcoming release of its new industry report titled, "Inclusion: The Key to the Future of Education," as a call to action for the U.S. education landscape. McKay authored the paper and shares his viewpoint on the importance of creating and maintaining an inclusive classroom for all learners. The POV paper will be available on the Texthelp website in the coming weeks.
