Breakthrough in EdTech
Education underpins economic, social and financial prosperity for every country in the world. Despite this fact, education has also traditionally been one of the slowest segments to innovate through technology.
Our current education systems and tools were designed for the industrial age and not necessarily the needs of today’s rapid pace of ongoing learning and work requirements. Without change, current education models, tools and systems are unlikely to be able to service the future global demand for education.
Fortunately, we are witnessing a significant emergence of educational technology that is disrupting traditional educational models, with a growing list of EdTech companies and products.
With the exponential growth in the number of EdTech companies in the industry, how can you stand out in a crowded market? How do you break out from the EdTech noise? Nominate for an EdTech Breakthrough Award and BREAKTHROUGH!

Emerging EdTech Trends to Watch
Increasingly data-driven, EdTech solutions are applying technologies for personalization and adaptive learning, as well as video content, gamification and immersion technology to change the way people learn. Technologies such as after-school and adult learning apps, virtual environments and online degrees could redefine formal higher education and transform the traditional career path. A student can now easily upload homework through a portal, learn chemistry through 3D immersion and engage in social learning across the globe.
Online and mobile encourages learning through rewards and game mechanics, thus improving interaction, retention and comprehension. It can also teach social – emotional learning (SEL) and collaboration skills.
PERSONALISATION AND ADAPTIVE LEARNING
Adaptive learning technologies use data on individual achievements and progress to develop programmers specific to the learner’s speed, ability and interest.
Virtual and augmented reality technologies mimic real life settings in areas such as virtual field trips, anatomy and scientific laboratories. Beyond classrooms, these technologies are applied in mining, oil and gas, medicine and other professional sectors.
