Education Division Programs

SIIA's Education Division prides itself on bringing awareness to the needs of the ed tech industry by providing leadership, advocacy, business development opportunities, and critical market information. Below are several special programs that support our initiatives:

Innovation Showcase

SIIA's Innovation Showcase program identifies and supports entrepreneurs in their efforts to bring innovative learning technologies to the education market. The program began in 2006 and has provided a platform for dozens of successful products and companies to present their efforts to improve education through the use of software, digital content and related technologies.

One-to-One Business Connections

Meet the right people, for the right reasons, during the One-to-One Business Connections. Leverage your time at our conferences to the fullest by having ETIN schedule meetings in advance with companies that can help you meet strategic business objectives. These fast-paced exchanges will help pave the way for increased capital, revenue, and strategic alliances between participants. For further information, contact Donelle Blubaugh.

CODiE Awards

The SIIA CODiE Awards recognize excellence in the content, education and software industries. All nominated products and services receive a thorough review from seasoned and leading educators who can identify strengths and give significant insights for improvements. In 27 years, SIIA has recognized more than 1,000 companies for achieving greatness in industries that expect innovative thinking and demand market validation.

Vision K-20

The SIIA Vision K-20 Initiative promotes the best uses of technology to ensure that all U.S. students have access to a teaching and learning environment capable of preparing them to compete globally and lead the world in innovation. SIIA's Education Division member companies are the providers of the software application, digital content, and other technology tools that are essential for education in the 21st Century.

Ed Tech Market Surveys

The U.S. Educational Technology Market reports are annual vendor studies conducted by the SIIA's Education Division in order to measure the size, scale, and ongoing trends in the U.S. institutional markets for educational software and digital content/resources. Here, we limit our definition of the PK12 and Higher Ed markets to digital content, educational software, and related technology products and online services used both in and outside of the classroom, including professional development, but excluding hardware. This survey examines those results in the context of the larger policy, funding, and technology industry environments. For further information, contact Donelle Blubaugh.
