We’re excited to publish the first version of a tool to help you find and compare EdTech tools.
The EdTech Hub’s mission is to increase the use of evidence to inform decision-making about education technology. Right now, our focus is on helping you think about whether and how EdTech can help you respond to the challenges of the school closures caused by coronavirus (COVID-19). We’re building something to help you find education responses by governments and EdTech tools that support these responses.
We’ve published our first version, containing information about a small number of EdTech tools. This database was developed in collaboration with UNESCO and builds on their distance learning solutions COVID response page.
We’ve published this quickly, so we can learn from your feedback and improve it. We plan to add more tools over time and information about how governments are using EdTech. We also plan to develop the tool further to make it easier for you to use.
For that, we’ll need your help. Please let us know how you find using the tool: what works well; what doesn’t work; what’s confusing; what filters or bits of information are missing; and whatever else you think about it. To do this, please fill in our feedback form.
We look forward to hearing from you!
