Is EdTech dying?
David T. Kim
Politics and administration are far more difficult to change than technology and culture. That's why some have been saying that EdTech has faced a dead end. Indeed, it is extremely difficult to change the way schools and districts operate. While talking to potential investors and countless users, I have realized that my startup was growing in the LearnTech space rather than being a "unique EdTech" product. Some investors understood our product's direction and mission better after hearing that it's geared towards the receiving end of learning. To simplify, EdTech is mainly focused on teachers and schools. LearnTech is more focused on students. If such definitions are true, do you think EdTech still has a bright future?
