Today’s education environment is primed for edtech adoption. Yet, while the possible impact of edtech has excited many educators, the investment and adoption of technology within education has been slow to follow. Bureaucracy too often hinders adoption, and a lack of proper funding further cements the education industry’ gap between vision and reality.

The relationship between schools/universities and the technologies they use may be complex, but edtech has the potential to dramatically improve how teachers interact with students. And for the better.
