We Are EdSurge

EdSurge delivers insights and connects those exploring how technology can support equitable opportunities for all learners.

Teachers, techies, storytellers. EdSurge was founded in 2011 to connect the emerging community of education technology entrepreneurs and educators. The founding team was led by Betsy Corcoran, a long-time journalist who served as EdSurge’s chief executive. The EdSurge founding team played key roles in catalyzing EdSurge as well as the edtech community. The team included (from the left): Kris Hattori, Tony Wan, Betsy Corcoran, Nick Punt, Jennie Dougherty, Leonard Medlock and Agustin Vilaseca.

As an award-winning education news organization, EdSurge reports on the people, ideas and technologies that shape the future of learning. In 2019, EdSurge was acquired by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), a nonprofit membership organization for educators. EdSurge operates as an independent news and research initiative of ISTE.
