Scaling edtech projects: challenges and opportunities
Technology has been seen as the universal remedy to solve the lack of access to education around the world. During the last decade, there has been an explosion in the edtech sector, and very promising projects have started to change things in many communities.
However, with this rise of new projects, different challenges have emerged as well, and there is one underlying question: could local solutions become global solutions?
This first WISE Hangout Session is intended to create a space where new projects share their experiences about the difficulties of taking one solution to a different problem. We want to discuss the different ways projects can be replicated or rolled out at a large scale across different environments; and come up with recommendations to develop a edtech model suitable for scaling.
