Jobs and Opportunities at EdTech Hub

About EdTech Hub

Our goal is to empower people making decisions about technology in education. 

Even before the Covid-19 pandemic, the global learning crisis was affecting millions of children around the world.

Technology could play a huge role in helping to solve this crisis, if used appropriately. 

There are thousands of tools, products, services, and ideas for using technology in education. New ones appear almost every day. For decision-makers, the choices can be overwhelming. The EdTech Hub takes away that burden. 

We do the research, to rigorous academic standards. We try out new ideas by supporting innovators. We advise partners as they plan and implement education programs, finding the right role for technology.

With EdTech Hub’s help, decision-makers inside and outside government can benefit from free access to high quality professional research and advice.
