Continued was named a finalist in the 2022 EdTech Awards, which recognize outstanding contributions in education through technology that enrich the lives of learners everywhere.
Featuring educational technology's best and brightest, the annual EdTech Awards were established in 2010 to shine a spotlight on cool tools, inspiring leaders, and innovative trendsetters across the K-12, higher education, and skills and workforce sectors.
Continued was recognized as a national leader and top professional development learning solution.
“Our primary goal at Continued is to leverage technology such that it becomes transparent in the learning experience of the member,” said Leigha Jansen, EdD, CPACC, director of education technology for Continued.
“The use of simple, effective technology is more important than adopting the latest, shiniest tools in the ed tech toolbox. Our technology selections consistently support the learner and our expert presenters with an easy-to-use, exceptional learning experience."
This year’s finalists and winners were narrowed from the larger field and judged based on various criteria, including: pedagogical workability, efficacy and results, support, clarity, value and potential.
"As events unfold on the world stage that seem to inch ever closer to a precipice unknown, we are reminded that the leaders and innovators of education technology have always worked on the edge," said Victor Rivero, editor in chief of EdTech Digest.
"The future-focused work they do is inspired by the infinite potential of all people to learn and thrive. It's pushed forward by the human spirit. It's the light that even through the darkest times always shines through," Rivero said.
