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.
EdTech Evidence for Entrepreneurs Course
WEST AFRICA / SELECTIVE COHORT-BASED COURSE
About the course
The EdTech Evidence for Entrepreneurs course is for Africa-based Foundation Literacy and Numeracy (FLN) focused EdTech innovators and entrepreneurs who want to ensure their EdTech products use the best available evidence for how to improve teaching and learning outcomes.
We often hear from people developing EdTech products that they want to bring more research on teaching and learning into the design of their product’s, and they are eager to demonstrate how their product builds on the best available evidence. But they’re not quite sure where to start. This course aims to fill that need.
Supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Jacobs Foundation, and UK Aid, the course is intended to help you improve your FLN focused EdTech product by offering practical, evidence-based lessons from fellow entrepreneurs, industry experts, and education leaders.
