The Shape of Ed. Tech.

Ed. Tech. Cynic: Is there an educational technology bubble?

Me: Only if you choose to live inside it.

If educational technology has any form, than its a divide; a deep ravine that’s ready to reward those who have the courage to fill its unmet needs. The meek will go for what’s easy. They will be unwilling to build solutions for the greatest demands. Working in the service of independent and affluent schools, these ed. tech. companies exist in a bubble-and its more than economic.

There isn’t a bubble, there’s a giant divide and those with enough courage to bridge and fill that divide will be those who reap the benefits of supplying a solution to the majority of the market and the 14 billion dedicated to paying for it.
