EdTech Hub

The £20m+ “Research and Innovation Hub on Technology for Education” (EdTech Hub) grant has been awarded to a consortium of 6 partners including the University of Cambridge. Funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office (FCDO) over 7 years, the EdTech Hub studies over how effective, culturally appropriate uses of EdTech do – and do not – help to accelerate, spread and scale system-level interventions that lead to better learning outcomes for children in low-income countries. Importantly, the Hub sets out to determine where EdTech offers the greatest value for money and social return on investment.
