Things to Consider Before Starting an EdTech Firm

[RESEARCH] Who Is Ready for the Coming Wave of Innovation?

Employers like EY and IBM are now hiring workers without college degrees

“Are our schools and universities adequately prepared to educate young people for future challenges? Young scientists around the world express their concerns about:
- The disconnect between humans and nature.
- The models of education that do not teach students to learn to collaboratively design creative solutions to complex problems.
- The lack of self-regulation in a world of digital temptations.
- Lack of equal access to knowledge.
- The (underdeveloped) art of communicating science’s relevance to the world around us and its application to societal issues.
… plus social responsibility, creativity, and critical thinking.”

“Kahoot! releases their second annual EdTrends report. Here are the top 3 trends for this year:
1. Data-driven instruction goes mainstream in K-12 classrooms
2. Insufficient funding and training still stand between teachers and technology adoption
3. Teachers see tech as a must-have for developing strong 21st century skills
4. Google is the top choice in classroom for hardware and software”
