Digitalization is changing the requirements for education and lifelong learning. It also has the potential to personalize learning and democratize education. This program is for people who want to digitalize or create solutions for education in schools and companies.

Education technology (Edtech) creates solutions for today’s challenges: integration of refugees, lack of teachers, declining student results and the increasing amount of administrative work for teachers. Edtech, together with skilled teachers and students, is a combination that generates new possibilities for lifelong learning, in schools, companies and other organizations.

The edtech sector is growing fast and you will have many opportunities after the program. The global edtech business is growing 20% per year and is estimated to reach €230 Billion by 2020. You will have the competence and skills to build your own or join an already existing edtech startup. Join the movement!

Skills learned

During the training, you will develop both soft and hard skills in the edtech area. You will learn about edtech, test it and develop new solutions for it.
