Even with huge government and school edtech spending in the U.S., results can be criticized when it comes to the efficiency these investments have. Other areas of the globe are making particularly significant efforts towards integrating technology in education, creating new market opportunities for companies. For instance:
- European Nordic countries and the UK represent more than half of Europe’s edtech investment growth,
- Israel with a unique focus on R&D about the way students learn,
- Latin America will have invested about $3 billion by 2023 for edtech, in order to accompany a high consumption of edtech (4th area in terms of edtech consumption worldwide),
- China and India showcase massive investments (in 2016, Chinese investment reached $1.2 billion in edtech investments and India predicted to reach about double of this figure in a couple of years).
