Now in its 8th year, EdTech Digest’s US-based program is the largest and most competitive recognition program in all of education technology, recognizing the biggest names in edtech – and those that soon will be.

“After several lessons using Unique Learning System's interactive activities, worksheets, and manipulatives, students are able to master letter recognition and writing,” said Carolyn Jones, special education teacher in Louisiana’s Lincoln Parish Schools. “The program is not only a teacher time saver but serves as a data tracker of students’ strengths and weaknesses. I love the Unique Learning System!”
