Ed-tech has made significant strides in 2013.

Which ed-tech products and services do our readers like best? Here are their top 40 choices for the 2013-14 school year.

This past spring, we asked readers to give us their top picks for school hardware, software, websites, and services. Nearly 700 readers responded via one of our three websites: eSchoolNews.com, eCampusNews.com, and eClassroomNews.com.

In nominating their favorite products, we asked readers to tell us how they’re using these products to improve teaching, learning, or school administration—and to what effect. We then chose the 40 best responses, which appear alphabetically by product name.

The result is a list of ed-tech products and services that have proven to be effective. We hope you’ll find this information useful as you consider how technology can help transform education on your own campus.

Here’s a quick table of contents to help you navigate:
