Novel Effect receives District Administration 2023 Top EdTech Award

Per Digital Administration’s announcement, “[Products] were judged on their innovation in the ed-tech space, with particular attention to how the tools are breaking new ground, how much value they add to education, how intuitive they are for users, and whether they deliver what they promise.”

District Administration writes, “[Novel Effect] learners and listeners are immersed in magical soundscapes, bringing awe and smiles that dramatically enhance the read-aloud experience.”

 Novel Effect is loved by teachers, librarians, parents, and kids alike, giving it a nearly-unheard-of 4.9 App Store rating out of over 5,000 ratings. Many call it “magical” and say student engagement is “off the charts” when reading aloud with Novel Effect. 

"We are incredibly proud to receive District Administration's 2023 Top EdTech Product award,” said Matt Hammersley, CEO and Co-founder of Novel Effect. “The recognition is another validation that Novel Effect creates magical read-aloud experiences for educators and their students."

District Administration’s Top Ed Tech Products of the Year will be delivered at this year’s Future of Education Technology® Conference (FETC) on January 23-26 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
