Selected from 40 startups representing 17 countries, the participants have developed tools that help teachers and students, from small children to adult professionals, to learn and to organise the process of learning and teaching.
Project areas range from gamefication of studies to robotic platforms and virtual coaching. Ed-Tech Evolution is tech world’s response to Covid-19 crisis, which presents a challenge to society, but also an excellent opportunity for technological breakthroughs. The week-long, all-online program brought together tech gurus, investors, educational institutions and government officials from Nordic and Baltic region.
The COVID-19 crisis came as a "black swan" event for educational sector, prompting schools and universities to move online and redesign their curriculum accordingly. It will make a lasting impact on how we think about teaching and learning, according to organizers of the five-day event.
Prototype or fully-designed tools and platforms scrutinised as part of the program are more than likely to find a way into school and university classes in Europe and beyond in the future.
You can watch a livestream of the Demo Day event below at 16:00 (GMT+3) featuring 11 pitches from startups, where they will be presenting their products, the goals they reached during the accelerator week and their future plans. In turn, a total of 7 prizes will be awarded.
