TrustEd Apps Pledge

The TrustEd Apps Program begins with our pledge to put open standards and data privacy at the forefront of education technology integrations. It's the 1EdTech community call to action to ensure there's always a level playing field for schools, universities, and state organizations when it comes time to purchase and implement digital tools.

Created by the 1EdTech community, open standards are the best way to enable product choice, reduce cost, and make informed decisions with reliable data. The TrustEd Apps pledge gives all of us a collective and powerful voice to benefit every student, teacher, institution, and edtech supplier. See the leading organizations that have endorsed the pledge.

TrustEd Apps Certification and Self-Assessment Rubrics

Educators have enough to juggle without figuring out if a particular software will plug-and-play with the rest of their digital ecosystem. Product certification and self-assessment rubrics, backed by the 1EdTech community, help streamline, scale, and save valuable time when designing the educational experience to meet the unique needs of teachers and learners. 


1EdTech consistently demonstrates its value and trust by enabling timely integrations and interoperability with our customers. Getting our products certified is how we show commitment to secure and interoperable digital learning ecosystems.
