EdTech / eLearning TrendsMany Hands raise high up

Two great things that go great together

The marriage of technology and education is bringing about so many exciting opportunities in EdTech and eLearning. The increasingly affordable accessibility of devices and broadband is transforming the educational landscape and experience beyond anything we had as children. The possibilities are multiplying by the day and the goals are lofty.

Technology in education seeks to increase education mobility (only 5% of Americans whose parents didn’t graduate college will complete a college degree), bring access to quality educational tools regardless of geography, roll out the common core efficiently, better prepare high school students for college, arm educators with more tools and resources, diversify the educational milieu and the corporate landscape, as well as other lofty and creative objectives.

7 Hottest Trends In HR Technology” by Meghan M. Biro
