In contrast to the detrimental impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the provision of traditional classroom-based education, it has catalysed a long-term acceleration in the growth of technology-based learning with positive implications.
Global investment in the educational technology (EdTech) industry ramped up enormously in 2020 and 2021 in direct response to the complexities traditional in-person education faced during the pandemic. This investment is continuing despite face-to-face learning resuming, in recognition of the long-term role EdTech can play in educating students of all ages and demographics globally. As such, investors are increasingly recognising that EdTech offers a lifetime of personalised learning for those looking to optimise their academic and career paths, not only during K-12 educations.
