• The Edtech Tours:

    Learning from Best Practices Around the World in Education Innovation

    Beyond the Hype : Mapping Edtech Clusters and Creating Open-Source Resources for a Refined Understanding of the Global Ecosystem

    Sharing Edtech Best Practices and Success Stories in Order to Scale Innovation

    We want to make sense of the hyped “Edtech” acronym and bring stakeholders who have a different understanding of Edtech together by raising awareness of the different challenges of a fundamental sector. We wish to amplify the voice of a large community of education innovators and share their philosophy, ideas, findings, innovations, achievements with a broader audience.

  • What are we up to?

    A research project to learn about edtech adoption trends around the globe.

    The #EdtechTours are initiatives promoting global perspectives on edtech fuelled by local insights, bringing together major sectorial stakeholders beyond functional and geographical boundaries, learning from best practices in education innovation, mapping edtech clusters and creating open-source resources for a refined understanding of the global ecosystem.

  • Areas of study

    We address, among others, the issues of...

    Emerging countries

    What type of frugal innovation models exist in countries with low internet penetration? What is possible with basic technological tools?

    Data

    Data can have super powers to enhance learning. Adaptive learning technologies use data to personalize learning paths: but is this enough? and what about privacy issues?

    Scaling

    How to scale innovation? Not an easy question. We look at non-profit VS venture-funded startup companies, sustainability models and venture-scale markets

    Lifelong Learning

    The challenge of lifelong learning in the professional world is big. Which tools, pedagogies can be used to create a learning culture inside an organization?

    Export

    How do purchasing systems work for education technology products and services and how can companies outside of the region gain entry?

    Policy

    What are governments' education technology policies, spending trends and which technologies are gaining traction in schools and universities?
