The award recognizes education technology projects that demonstrate evolving traditional educational delivery models and feature a seamless technology environment for teachers and students to support effective combinations of online and in-the-classroom learning.

ClassLink is the platform used by NISD students and staff members to log in and access digital learning tools. It was instrumental when the district moved to Remote Learning because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It also provides engagement analytics for teachers and automated class rostering.

The winning project was selected from 28 finalists following a joint presentation by Cara Carter, executive director of technology, and ClassLink.

"I can't imagine, with the amount of money that we spend these days on all of our digital tools, not having ClassLink to help us get them in the hands of students in a timely manner," she said. "The ease of access for teachers, leaders, students, and parents has been completely transformational."
