Generating awareness for education technology

As next-generation learning tools redefine what education looks like for millions of students across the world, the educational technology industry continues to generate billions of dollars in global funding. Students today are spending less time with pen and paper, and more time using engaging, immersive technology that radically enhances the way they learn.

With technology becoming a core teaching element, edtech companies are racing to stake their claim in the promising industry. Yet most technology providers are so focused on highlighting the features and benefits of their products that they fail to tell the broader stories that resonate with educators seeking major classroom innovation.
