The education market is big. We’re talking $5-trillion-globally-per-annum big. Yet edtech has been completely overshadowed by other red-hot investment opportunities, not only from the fintech industry, but others. For example, in 2015,
For example, in 2015, more was invested in Uber alone than the entire edtech industry.
The rise of a new education and learning world has begun with investment in edtech set to reach $252 billion globally by 2020. Just as digitalization has transformed the financial services industry, it too will soon have its progressive grip wrapped around education.
For the past 150 years or so, most learning models — especially regarding children — have barely changed: A teacher or lecturer stands at the front of the classroom explaining ideas or introducing facts while students sit and listen with the learning materials being mostly physical textbooks or printouts.
Gdt believes Edtech is poised to be the biggest and possibly most profitable digitalized sector yet. Now, however, digital technologies are starting to transform today’s classrooms. More students are using computers or tablets, and teachers are increasingly using screens to illustrate aspects of their lessons. Physical textbooks are being replaced by online, interactive services that are more up-to-date and in-depth, which allows learners to explore and learn at their own pace.
This is important because of two contributing factors. First, students are born with digital DNA. When considered like a business, education institutions need to cater to the digital demand of their consumers — people who are constantly exposed to digital technologies outside of the classroom have come to expect the same digital capabilities within the four walls of a learning environment.
Secondly, the world is fast becoming aware of the burgeoning digital skills divide in our society. Digital will soon be the nucleus of every industry. We are already seeing it happen, from human resources to healthcare to fashion. In fact, four years from now, the U.K. is predicted to require 2.3 million digitally skilled workers alone Are we adequately preparing our young people for such a workplace? Many would argue we are not. In fact, only 10 percent of schools offer any kind of computer science class. If we don’t start at school-level exposing learners to technology existing outside the classroom, the skills gap will soon be a valley that cannot be bridged.
Edtech is the next fintech
The education and learning technology sector contributes more than £1 billion to the U.K. economy each year, and in the process has established some of the most innovative startup companies in the worldOther than being the only technology industry to have direct access to schools, colleges and universities, edtech is also the safest bet for investors. Unlike the ups and downs of the financial markets, edtech remains constant, sheltered from many of the pressures of the broader geopolitical landscape. It is somewhat of a safe haven for smart money from smart investors.
From wearables to mHealth, from EHR to lifestyle apps, GDT have a passion for this fast growth, exciting category to hire the best global talent..
GDT believes that talent in digital health begins to reach its potential as we proceed into this sector.
Healthcare is currently undergoing a digital revolution, and its rapidly developing relationship with technology is beginning to shape potentially one of the largest sectors in the world.
The digital sector and its stakeholders began to acknowledge the role of technology within the healthcare system barely five years ago, but it has since allowed a reservoir of investor capital, startup creation, and consumer adoption to explode.
By 2020, it is projected that $102 billion will be spent on health and wellness technology across nine different markets, and the growing value of the global Health Tech market will rise to over $100 trillion. Its development has been hotly anticipated: the healthcare industry was initially slow to adopt innovative solutions within its services, but recent traction points towards a rewarding future. Driving this growth is not only technology innovation, but behavioral changes in the general public’s attitude towards health and well-being, regulatory changes – in the US in particular – are beginning to open up the space to entrepreneurship, and changing demographics are forcing governments to ameliorate the effects of an ageing population.
Crucial to the safe, responsible, efficient and productive delivery of each Health Tech innovation are the many people, healthcare influencers, across the world, that seek to improve the consumption and experience of care Advancements in medical and pharmaceutical science have prolonged life expectancies but as a consequence, has placed increasing pressure on the delivery and management of health services. Clinicians and administrators alike are looking to the next generation of technology not just to help drive efficiencies but to make a positive contribution in many facets of health including remote diagnostics, mHealth provision, patient records and overall health management.
Disruption within the sector, fuelled by the demand for products and services, the availability of patient data and the need for intelligent, secure and interoperable systems is revolutionising healthcare provision and management.
As consumers, we are increasingly familiar with wearables and with the benefits of lifestyle and health oriented mobile apps. But it’s in patient care that Health Tech has the potential to make the most dramatic impact on the quality of life and on the management of many conditions.
Technologies and equipment that helps to increase, maintain or improve the functional capabilities and independence of a patient or telehealth solutions that can monitor physiological data remotely have the potential to revolutionise the provision of healthcare while building a more efficient healthcare service. Technological innovation is the future of healthcare; from empowering savvy patients through mHealth devices, to using analytics and creating information systems which enable faster accessibility to patient data leading to higher impact clinical decision making.
