The EdWards

Celebrating evidence-informed EdTech

The EdWard is UCL EDUCATE’s quality mark, a formal recognition that a company has been an active participant on our programme and that their knowledge and/or use of applied research has positively impacted the development of their product.

It is a signal to schools, universities and other education institutions that they can be confident these EdTech companies’ products or services have a sound basis in research and do transform teaching and learning.

“It is a real recognition of our hard work, and an acknowledgement that we’ve made this product the best it can be.” Luke Doyle, SwopBots


The Evidence-Aware Edward is presented to companies that have successfully completed the EDUCATE programme and demonstrated a clear understanding of how to apply research methods within the company’s context.
