Opportunities and Challenges in EdTech

EdTech is a use of technology in form of products/apps/tools to enhance learning, pedagogy and instruction. It is not replacing any current practices, but it is the use of those tools to aid in the delivery of education. 

EdTech is also creating a stronger link between what happens in the classroom and outside the classroom (at home, in transit, etc.), making teacher-endorsed digital educational resources available at all times, such as assignments and test prep material, and creating a continuum of touch points in the learning experience for pupils.  

This is changing the way pupils are consuming education in the same way Cloud technology has changed the way we consume music and television.  

Startup Saturday Ahmedabad is bringing the theme of 'Opportunities and Challenges in EdTech' to get the insights from the experts who have their first hand experience from the same sector.
