Jooki, the world’s first Spotify Connect speaker for kids, announced today that it has won the 2022 EdTech Cool Tool Awards – Finalist Award, recognizing the most innovative products in educational technology. Jooki was named in the Arts, Music, or Creative Solution category for its screen-free speaker that gives kids safe access to streaming educational and entertainment-based audio content without the need for adult supervision. The EdTech Awards is the world’s largest recognition program for educational technology, recognizing the biggest names in edtech – and those who soon will be.
Guided by Montessori education principles, Jooki is the only high-quality speaker that gives kids safe, screen-free access to streaming audio content. The award-winning Jooki player connects through Wi-Fi for music and audiobook streaming, helping parents empower their children to develop imagination, independence, and emotional awareness. With Jooki, sharing favorite playlists and bonding the family with special stories, songs, and music have never been easier. In just a few clicks, parents can associate a Spotify playlist with a Jooki figurine; and then the child can just place the figurine on the speaker to access that playlist.
“We are honored to be recognized by the premier leader in educational technology with this award for our Montessori-inspired, award-winning Jooki player that creates a safe environment for children to explore and learn on their own,” remarked Christine Brendle, CEO, Jooki.
“To the innovators, leaders, and trendsetters in K-12, higher education, and workforce learning who continue connecting, producing, and persisting despite all challenges, a hearty hat-tip, and a grand salute!” said Victor Rivero, Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest, who oversees the awards program.
