6 Ways in which edtech shapes teacher training programs

The global edtech market will see a rise in global spending of $342b by 2025. For teachers, that means edtech is here to stay, as more and more schools and universities are moving towards partial or complete digitization.

However, things are not as rosy as they seem. The edtech industry as a whole has a problem: the successful adoption of technology in the classroom.

When we talk about integrating technology, there’s often the question of training current educators how to use it.
