China’s EdTech investments are aimed at bridging the gap between urban and rural learners

China’s EdTech investments are aimed at bridging the gap between urban and rural learners

Educational Technology (EdTech) has gained immense popularity across the world in the past few years. The rise in virtual learning due to the ongoing pandemic has furthermore increased its importance. Other countries are trying their best to adapt to the new online education approach, but China is already one step ahead with its integrations and approaches towards EdTech in informal (tutoring) and formal (schools) education. China’s approach is also very different when it comes to investing in EdTech companies. The country has clearly identified that the key direction for significantly improving the education sector is making the switch to e-learning. In 2018, the valuation of the EdTech market reached a whopping $300 billion in China.

The growing investments in Edtech show that the country not only has invested in the future of education, but it has also focused on developing new solutions for bigger societal issues. Right now, there is a huge disparity in China’s education sector. The reason for this is quite obvious among the left-behind children and urban youths whose parents choose to stay in their native villages instead of moving to the urban areas. This division between rural and urban education access can be significantly reduced by using EdTech solutions.
