The education technology industry is seeing a massive influx of investment, interest, and resources. From tools to help you track grades to apps that help you find your next school, there’s a litany of resources being created on a daily basis.

About The List

I know the endless stream of stuff on Edudemic can be a bit overwhelming (the homepage alone is hard to track, I know) so I thought you might benefit from having a quick list of the education technology startups we’re watching, learning about, and chatting with.

Below is by no means an exhaustive list and it’s in absolutely no particular order. Each startup is doing something cool (we think, at least) and is worth knowing about.
