Takahashi: Picking the winners at the DEMO conference

Education.com stood out as the only education-oriented company in the field of 77 presenters at the conference in Palm Desert. There is no Google or Microsoft in this field, and that’s the way the VCs like it.

This Redwood City company stands out to me as one of the winners of the show. By mid-February, Education.com plans to launch an application for parents dubbed School Finder (www.schoolfinder.education.com). It gives detailed information on about 100,000 public, private and charter schools. That will make it easy for parents to compare schools and choose the best for their children.

DEMO 08 showcases power of the individual

While I still have some time to start looking for schools for my kids (some would say I’m already behind), at least I’ll have Education.com’s new SchoolFinder Web site and service. The new application lets parents look for and evaluate schools (elementary through high school) to find "the best fit for their kids." The site aims to have a nationwide database (100,000 public, private and charter schools) combined with community reviews and advanced search features, giving parents the tools to select a school that’s most appropriate for their children. A cool feature includes maps and demographic information that let parents see the boundaries of school districts for those considering moving to a new area. The Web site is expected to launch next month. Read full story on Network World.

DEMO: Education.com helps you find schools for your kids

Education.com of Redwood City has aggregated a lot of info for parents about schooling. Among the tools is school finder, a tool that, if you’re moving, helps you find a good school in a good neighborhood for your kids.
