Edtech’s Make-or-Break Point: Understanding the Current Landscape and Future of Learning


3rd June 2020

The global spread of the current pandemic has caused drastic measures, including schools and universities around the world being closed. With 1.3 billion children in 186 countries facing closed school doors in the last weeks, the sudden transition to homeschooling and distance learning is certainly changing the idea of education and what learning looks like in the 21st century and beyond. The current pandemic is accelerating trends that were already shaping the future of a market, which is projected to reach $10 trillion by 2030, mainly fuelled by population growth in developing regions and technology advancements for re-skilling and up-skilling in developed economies.

After talking last month with Verena Pausder, one of THE advocates for digital education in Germany, on homeschooling (you can find the Interview here), I wanted to take a deeper look at relevant players in the market, lessons learned from Asian Edtech startups and the future of learning post-pandemic.
