Tools for Advancing EdTech

A collection of EdTech tools and applications for decision makers, implementers, and researchers

When investigating and demonstrating EdTech applications, it can be tempting to say it’s as simple as finding the right tool for the right job. But nuance and context are critical factors for success.

EdTech Hub partners with organisations to explore the innovative and ever-evolving world of EdTech tools. We collect examples and methodologies of EdTech tools in theory and in practice, collaborate with subject-area experts, and create resources to help guide education decision makers.

Explore our range of EdTech tool resources, from databases to self-guided learning modules, and check back for new tool resources in the future.

EdTechTools Database
Tools for Advancing EdTech

EdTechTools is a database of educational and skills development tools curated by EdTech Hub in partnership with Generation Unlimited (GenU), UNESCO and UNESCO-UNEVOC. EdTechTools was designed to help decision makers at all levels in the global education and training community find resources that facilitate and support remote learning.

EdData Tools

The EdData Tools dashboard provides a mapping of technologies through the data life cycle in the EiE sector, gathered through research and crowdsourcing. This mapping is by no means exhaustive. Use it to supplement other sources as you explore technology insights and examples in order to determine which technologies work best for your context! 

EdTech Tools for Teacher Continuous Professional Development
Teacher Continuous Professional Development

We know there are a lot of EdTech tools out there that can be used for teaching and learning. With so many tools at our fingertips, it can be difficult to know which tools to use, and how to use them in an evidence-based way.

To help, EdTech Hub has created curated lists of teacher professional development (TPD) tools along with evidenced-based advice on how to effectively use them. Because, of course, it’s not only which tool you choose, but how you use it that will determine whether it will lead to better teaching and learning.
