WISE Edtech

WISE Edtech

We know that innovation thrives on knowledge sharing and interaction.

That is why we have worked hard over the last six years to build a dynamic edtech program here at WISE that aims to support ongoing edtech innovation both at a local and global scale.

So what do we do?

Support innovation

Alongside a global network of mentors, entrepreneurs and investors, we help edtech ventures scale and grow through our WISE Accelerator program

Conduct new research into edtech

Through our Edtech Testbed, we match WISE Accelerator ventures with schools in our network and test what works and determine why to improve both edtech and classroom practice

Build a global edtech community

We aim throughout the year to bring together thought leaders from the global edtech community during our online events, in-person engagements and ongoing article series

Strengthening Instructional Leadership in Rwanda:
A Collaborative Effort

Since 2016, VVOB – education for development, an active member of the WISE ALL-IN community, has been working with REB and the University of Rwanda – College of Education (UR-CE) to capacitate school leaders as instructional leaders. 

WISE Edtech Accelerator

For over six years, the WISE Accelerator program has supported founders from around the world build and scale innovative edtech solutions.

With the help of our community of edtech founders, investors, and education stakeholders, we have delivered a bespoke program aimed at providing access to quality mentorship, coaching, and a global network focused on changing the way we learn, teach and work.

WISE Edtech Testbed

In order to further evolve the WISE Accelerator program and drive tangible impact at scale, we decided to launch the WISE Edtech Testbed.

The testbed will have three main objectives:

  • Provide schools with access to edtech innovation that meets their needs
  • Help teachers better understand how to use edtech effectively in the classroom
  • Demonstrate innovation in teaching and learning in order to inform national edtech policies
