Deciphering digital education trends

Part of the User Friendly podcast series

​We've come a long way since the days when schools only had one computer in each classroom. Now students are increasingly looking for digital education to help them continue their learning at home and on the go. But they're not just focused on content: Students want more opportunities for connection and collaboration.

Where is education technology going?

In this episode, Greg Merchant, Mic Locker, and Jennifer Eng dive into the expanding market for digital education, factors that could be preventing more widespread adoption, and the importance for companies to simultaneously target parents, students, and teachers.

We asked questions in our survey about allowing students to learn at different paces or allowing students to get feedback outside of the classroom and in almost every single case the gap between belief and practice was somewhere between 25 and 41 percent. That really makes a big difference when you're thinking about how far we have to go within the education sector and how much room education technology has to grow.
