Although Pearson would be our competitor, the Chief Digital Officer has given an interesting talk where he discusses both the reality of education today and where the Ed Tech can go.

Two of the most powerful stats he shared –

1) The Ed Tech industry is a 4 Trillion Dollar Industry – more than advertising and mobile tech.

2) 65% of children today will work in jobs that haven’t been invented yet.

These support the vision and goals of Trailhead!!!
