A recent article in the New York Times reports that Silicon Valley companies are rapidly expanding their investment in educational technology start ups. Investment has increased 55%, up to 1.87 billion from the year before. Edmodo, Pluralsight, and Remind are some ed tech companies that received large grants from venture capital firms to expand their operations and capabilities. Education is one of the last areas to receive funding from Internet companies, but it seems the tides are turning as mobile learning and access to Internet increase around the globe.
Ednastics is appropriately situated to link these educational technology companies to clients in the the Middle East and Africa, providing schools and training centers with the technology needed to achieve learning goals. We can connect these exciting new technological solutions with schools that have government and private funding to expand, but lack the knowledge and experience of what solutions may work best, and how to implement them.
