The edtech world is a fast paced and ever-changing landscape, burgeoning with new ideas, new technologies and even new philosophies on how we can inspire the next generation of learners.

As the dust begins to settle, what can every stakeholder learn from this decade of education technology to take with us into the next 10-15 years.
