Teachers, techies, storytellers. EdSurge was founded in 2011 by Betsy Corcoran, Matt Bowman, Nick Punt, and Agustin Vilaseca to connect the emerging community of education technology entrepreneurs and educators. As a leading education news organization, EdSurge reports on the people, ideas, and technologies that shape the future of learning. Through its work, EdSurge aims to help educators, entrepreneurs, policymakers, and other stakeholders be part of the rich and complex conversations about the evolving learning environments and the technologies and tools that support them. 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. CatchOn participates in the annual EdSurge Fusion Conference.
