Education Tech – Elevating Learning into the 21st Century
✔️ Key Take Aways
✔️ Our panelists agreed: we live in exciting times. The last year taught us that education is not attached to a physical location. Policy and processes have always been behind technology. Now, technology is here to enhance education and learning. We can fast track digital transformation not just in ed but in particular in ed.
✔️ We have the potential to overcome the digital divide, to provide consistent and quality education to kids anywhere in this country. Government is putting $170 billion and more into digital education infrastructure. A hybrid education model is certain to stay.
✔️ Companies can take advantage of new opportunities to deliver better tools, gamify learning, enable teachers, etc. And, they are also challenged with data management, privacy and security of student data.
✔️ Companies are encouraged to partner with schools to develop students’ computer, technology and cybersecurity skills so that they are ready to enter the digital workforce.
