The big names in the
ed-tech industry will be on the exhibit floor –Pearson, Scholastic, SMART Technologies, Microsoft, Google,for example. But despite this strong and sizable

changing what teachers and students alike are demanding: technology that is
more personalized, more user-friendly, and, well, just plain better.
