Education from a US and an International Development Perspective – A Two-Part Series
Education remains to be a key driver for global change. With varying political agendas, emerging challenges, and other factors, education providers, educators and pedagogy professionals alike need professional expertise and innovative solutions when approaching these matters. This special two-part series brings together experts in the education field to highlight these topics.
Why United States
The United States serves as a nexus for education and international development and may be of interest to EdTech companies in several respects. With over 350 million people and an impressive GDP per capita, the U.S. represents itself as a consumer market hub for the Education industry. Whether it’s K-12, TVET, academia or life-long learning, the United States is a prime location for bilateral and multilateral organizations that hold great influence on global education policies.
Worlddidac is the global trade association for the educational resources industry. We work equally with all education sectors, all countries and all relevant national associations endeavoring to improve education globally by connecting our members with like-minded stakeholders within the Education Industry. We are the only global association dedicated to the development of education worldwide.
