Australia’s strong position within the edtech space is under threat of being surpassed by emerging and established global players if more is not done to support and nurture it, according to a new report from edtech accelerator EduGrowth.
A growing number of edtech experts are testing new ideas that will shape the future of a college education, using everything from blockchain networks to computer simulations to artificial intelligence. Some of the transformations include college by subscription, robot teachers, and a lifelong transcript.
While welcoming and supporting the development of technology in higher education, this opinion aims to balance the New York Times article and represents a plea to keep a « human » higher education system.
The authors argue that technology alone will not solve the issues faced by colleges and universities because of the difficult context, combining notably the negative influence of demographic drivers and poor public funding.
Within this framework, human minds and ideas are the only roots for the future of learning.
With the influx of smart devices, Internet and advanced software, the scope of education is expanding to every nook and corner of India. The impact of edtech on not just the education sector but broadly on the society is applaud-worthy, which is why the edtech sector is also highly popular among aspiring start-ups.
The country is seeing a massive wave of revolution in the edtech sector.
Private equity and venture funds have invested record sums into the global education sector—$30 billion in the past five years across K-12 and workplace learning. Since 2017, investment has accelerated with $14 billion allocated, according to research firm HolonIQ. Here are five key trends to consider as education enters a new decade:
1. In the workplace, education is the new healthcare.
2. Our schools are facing a mental health crisis.
3. Schools spent a decade buying technology. Now they want it to work.
4. There is growing international demand for English-language learning.
5. Will edtech be caught up in a backlash against ‘big tech’ over data privacy?
