EdTech in New Zealand
New Zealand has a number of growing companies who are developing a diverse range of learning-focused products including games, apps, educational software and courseware to make the most of the export opportunities that the EdTech industry offers.
As well as the education sector (pre-schools, schools, tertiary institutes and lifelong learning), other potential market channels include corporate and workplace training, and consumers wanting personalised learning experiences.
In 2013, eT4e kick-started a process for developing a collaborative EdTech industry for New Zealand where networks and partnerships can be built for an EdTech exports future. This was organised by Education NZ and Grow Wellington. The et4e conference returns in 2014 with an exciting line up of international key note speakers.
