An online simulation in which students create their own company, then compete with each other by buying and selling shares of stock, and an iPad app for visual learning and assessment of special-needs students are two of the products from participants in the Software and Information Industry Association’s 2013 Innovation Incubator program, which raises the profile of fledgling ed-tech companies and helps them succeed.
Ten ed-tech companies and one alternate took part in SIIA’s Innovation Incubator program at the organization’s Ed Tech Industry Summit in San Francisco last week.
Jetlag Learning, whose SimCEO creates online learning simulations in which students compete and interact with each other instead of a computer program, was voted “Most Innovative,” and Brain Parade, whose See.Touch.Learn. app provides a personalized picture card learning tool for iPad users, was voted “Most Likely to Succeed.”
