Edtech is perhaps the most exciting and dynamic technology sector right now, especially with the boost digital learning is now getting from the govt. But I think this technology revolution is one for those who are in it for evolving, disrupting and extending the reach of education, this one’s for the Non profits to profit from, because they are not driven by short-sighted goals but propelled by far-sighted dreams of better education for al. That’s why you see OERs like CK12 at the epicentre of this revolution because they are constantly evolving and thus disrupting the educational landscape- making it congenial for all through quality, engagement, flexibility and adaptability.
