This year’s program attracted thousands of nominations from over 17 different countries throughout the world.

“Spark Education combines technology with proven pedagogy and child psychology to make learning fun, efficient, and effective. Though remote learning has become the norm in many situations, value should still be placed on the personal touch of passionate teachers and the social-emotional benefits of peer learning,” said Steve Johansson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough. “With Spark, students receive the right level of challenges and coaching to progress at their own pace while also benefiting from peer learning.
