Hello everyone and welcome back to The Edtech Podcast. Our mission is to improve the dialogue between ed and tech for better innovation and impact.
What’s in this episode?
In this episode, we look at what happened to edtech in China, covering regulations introduced earlier this year that are changing the way that online tutoring is conducted across China, and looking at what that means for the sector, learners and educators more generally. Plus, new jobs, funding, and startup support.
