Trailblazing Companies in Edtech: Classtag
The Tech Edvocate is pleased to produce its “Trailblazing Companies in Edtech” series. This series profiles the top edtech companies in the world. The Tech Edvocate’s editorial team has exhaustively researched companies in the edtech space to create this series. To frame our methodology, we decided to define the term edtech company broadly. In this series, you will find startups, small and medium-sized businesses, as well as perennial juggernauts, etc. who are transforming the edtech space as we know it.
The companies that we chose are all active in the area of edtech, doing something influential in edtech, well-known throughout the edtech landscape, and making an impact globally. We are excited to witness how these companies continue to change the world this year, and we are anxious to see who will stand on the shoulders of these giants, and as a result, become the next company that we profile in our series. In this installment of “Trailblazing Companies in Edtech,” we will profile Classtag.

How They Are Transforming the EdTech Space: Teachers struggle to connect with parents. Parents struggle to keep up with everything their kids have going on at school. What if all of those texts, emails, and scraps of paper could be aggregated to one place, though? A spot where questions, messages, school needs and other information could live and be easily accessed by parents, students, teachers, and administrators? This is exactly the task that the creators of Classtag sought out to accomplish through their streamlined communication platform. Classtag works to solve the problems associated with paper notes and emails, by helping teachers’ keep in contact with students and their parents quickly and efficiently.
