Ever wonder what the newest and best educational products are for the year? Well, a couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of getting a sneak peek at some of the coolest new learning resources for 2015 while attending EDexpo2015 in Atlanta. Imagine row after row of amazing vendors with toys, games, and teaching aides. It was amazing!
EDexpo is an annual event that showcases the latest innovations in education covering every facet of learning, from instructional materials, teaching aids, and technology products to educational games, toys, and supplies. This year the EDexpo board members selected 50 educational bloggers to attend the event. I was one of the lucky 50 who had the chance to meet with the vendors and learn about their newest creations on the market this year. Wow, did I find some great things that I’d love to have at home or in a classroom!
While we were meeting with vendors in the exhibit hall all of the bloggers were given the task of selecting the overall top 10 favorite products at EDexpo2015. Here are the products 50 bloggers chose as the best of the year!

Although I did work hard to find the best new education products at EDexpo, I also had a lot of fun! It’s always great to see old blogging friends and make new ones.
And it’s super exciting to meet kid idols. I definitely earned some street cred when my kids saw that I met Pete the Cat in real life…like for real!
