Technology is redefining the educational experience for millions of both children and adult learners as it becomes an increasingly valued , integral component of the modern classroom. Public schools alone now spend more than $3 billion per year on digital content, providing at least one computer for every five students. And for the first time, in 2015-16, more state standardized tests for the elementary and middle grades will be administered via technology than by paper and pencil.
With technology nowa core pedagogical element, edtech companies are racing to stake a claim, with $8 billion-plus being fed into the market annually. Yet most technology providers are so focused on highlighting the features and benefits of their products that they failing to tell the broader stories that resonate with educators seeking major classroom disruption.
The companies that position themselves successfully during this education revolution will define the standards of teaching and learning well into the next century. To accomplish such a level of influence, you must tell a higher-level story that goes beyond your product and speaks to how it will transform the modern classroom.
