There is a lot going on at Edulastic over the next few months. At the top of the list: the release of Edulastic 2020! We’re counting down the days until the big update and can’t wait to share it with you all.

Our team has been working hard to get this update all ready, and we are thrilled to add on two great interns to help us this summer. They are helping us create blog posts, getting the Edulastic Innovator Team up and running, and contributing to the resources on the YouTube channel. Our summer interns are instrumental in helping us reach and support educators around the country and world. You might see their names pop up on our blog or our Edulastic Community Page. We’re thrilled to bring them on board and introduce them to you all!
