SIIA Education Division Partners with ISTE and UBTech

6/5/2013 12:00:00 AM

SIIA to Participate in Two Industry-Leading Ed Tech Events in June

Washington, D.C. (June 4, 2013) – The Education Division of the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) today announces new partnerships with two major education technology groups. Through the agreements, SIIA will have a presence at the UBTech and ISTE 2013 events held this month.

The partnerships enable SIIA to extend the many benefits of its prominent Innovation Incubator Program. The Innovation Incubator Program is a peer-review competition that was created to help identify and support entrepreneurs in their development and distribution of innovative learning technologies. The program began in 2006 and has provided mentoring for dozens of successful companies in their efforts to improve education through the use of software, digital content, and related technologies. The application for the next program cycle will open in mid-August 2013.

The partners will provide Innovation Incubator applicants with customer-facing opportunities, including visibility on the conference websites, presentations on the conference programs, and access to conference exhibits at very reduced rates.

”These partners also provide visibility for SIIA’s thought leadership work around innovation. They view SIIA's work as pivotal and ground-breaking in developing support for innovative young companies,” said Karen Billings, vice president for the Education Division at SIIA. “The partnerships bring even more credibility to a program started six years ago by the Education Division of SIIA.”

SIIA also has valued partnerships with edWeb and MCH Strategic Data, which support the Educators’ Choice Award. This aspect of the Innovation Incubator competition allows educators and administrators throughout the country to listen to online presentations by program competitors and serve as evaluators, rating the products they feel best serve the needs of today’s schools. This is also an exceptional opportunity for educators to have a voice and influence new ideas for educational technology products and services. Their votes are then tallied and used to determine the winner of the Educators’ Choice Award.
