EdTech is big business, and the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed it into the mainstream. In just the next three years, the market for EdTech, technology used to enhance and enable education, is set to grow by $112.39 billion. There is extensive evidence illustrating how EdTech interventions are effective in improving student learning but that EdTech is most effective when it complements, not substitutes, the work of educators. Specifically, EdTech interventions are most effective when they play to one or more of its comparative advantages: (1) scaling up quality instruction; (2) facilitating personalized instruction; (3) expanding opportunities for practice; and (4) increasing learner engagement, i.e. making it more fun to learn. This session will highlight EdTech tools currently being utilized from K12 and HE while examining the 4 comparative advantages.
