Education Technology (EdTech) is a growing trend in the technology space across the world, but in reality, it is no new undertaking. Attempting to disrupt the education system through specific channels is a decades-old plan that has reaped many benefits for those companies successful in their endeavors. For example, in December of 2015, U.S.-based EdTech companies raised over $64 Million. Join Tech in Motion on Thursday, February 25th for an opportunity to see how local companies are shaking up education in their own unique ways.
