myON named to Tech & Learning’s Inaugural ISTE Best of Show Awards

Reading Platform Listed Among 34 Products Chosen by a Panel of Educators during the Country's Largest K-12 Ed Tech Trade Show

(MINNEAPOLIS) July 22, 2014 – Tech & Learning, a leading publication for K-12 EdTech leaders, has named myON among the 34 product winners in its inaugural ISTE Best of Show Awards. The online, personalized literacy platform was chosen by an anonymous panel of educators who scoured the exhibit hall floor during the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference in Atlanta.

Products were submitted by exhibitors at the annual conference, which took place June 29-July 1. The judges rated their impressions on a sliding scale, evaluating areas such as quality and effectiveness, ease of use and creative use of technology, then met to decide on which technologies could have the most impact in the classroom and deserved to be named Best of Show. Winning products ranged from student engagement software and Chromebooks, to charging carts and emergency alert systems. View the whole list of winners at

“It is a tremendous honor to see myON recognized as one of Tech & Learning’s standout products at ISTE,” said Todd Brekhus, president of myON. “Over the years, our dedicated team has worked tirelessly to deliver the most engaging, personalized literacy platform available to schools. We are proud of the work we do and to be recognized among the many other amazing ed-tech innovations on display at the conference is a testament to myON’s unique ability to impact the manner in which children learn.”

"The most asked question at every ISTE is, 'Did you see anything cool?’” says Kevin Hogan, Content Director for Tech & Learning Media Group. "We took this question to some of our most trusted advisors and they ran with it. They tromped the show floor to find the latest and greatest for all of our readers who couldn't be in Atlanta."
