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

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.
