The impact that technology (aka: digital) has had on education has been revolutionary… but not for all students. While some students have the benefit of a technology-enriched education that grows geometrically and teaches them to collaborate, innovate, and develop critical thinking skills, other students languish in class rooms that look remarkably similar to those from decades ago.
Why is that? We can point to politics, or budgets, or local control, or even Common Core, but the truth is this: we’ve done this to ourselves, we haven’t told the EdTech story right.
As an industry, we have to find a new direction, a new course, to telling our story. As learning becomes a lifelong endeavor, crafting a narrative that supports education technology is even more vital.
The marriage of technology to education has created completely new ways to teach and learn. Today’s EdTech requires completely new ways to tell, as well.
So that’s what we do here – we champion EdTech, and help EdTech companies tell their stories.
