Think about it for a moment, and you’ll see that the same can be said of us all and for our world.
From the now obsolete rotary telephones and wired landlines to the recent extraordinary leaps in AI, innovation promises long-lasting change, but is sometimes the forerunner to bigger and better things that promise more enduring change before the new and flashy updates roll around.

Edtech is an area of technology devoted to developing and applying tools to facilitate education.
