Israel’s startup ecosystem makes way for ed-tech
The burgeoning field of education technology is growing fast in Israel, and many view the country as the ideal beta site for ed-tech initiatives.
Schools worldwide are prioritizing STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) to prepare students for the workplace of tomorrow. And what better way to teach technological subjects, as well as many other subjects in the 21st century, than technology itself?
A new ecosystem is growing up around more than 100 Israeli startups developing sophisticated ed-tech tools – using technologies such as augmented reality, gaming and virtual reality – to enhance and transform the learning environment for all ages, learning styles and settings.
