Benefits of buying edtech from Scotland

Educational excellence

Scotland’s education system (including its world-class universities, three of which are in the global top 200) has successfully served as a live testing ground for edtech solutions.

This commitment to excelling in education, together with strong government support and policy for lifelong and digital learning, makes Scotland the ideal choice for edtech solutions.

Multiple disciplines

The impressive range of capabilities in Scotland’s edtech cluster of 70 companies is tried and tested in its own education system, and their success can be replicated in yours. Our companies help you with:

  • Artificial intelligence (AI) — for jobs that involve dealing with large volumes of data which humans might find challenging. In edtech, these include administration tasks or where improvements in efficiency and personalisation are required. AI can also be used to create tailored learning approaches: assessing a student's engagement and progression, and tailoring their learning objectives, as education moves away from a "one size fits all" approach.
  • Mixed reality and immersive content — where learning is delivered in either augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) or a mix of the two - mixed reality (MR). These 3D immersive environments use technology to encourage interaction and bring concepts to life.
  • Gamification — where edtech software uses gamification to motivate students to learn in a fun and sometimes competitive way.
  • Cloud-based learning management systems (LMS) — platforms where teachers can educate online, record engagement and track progress of the students.
  • Massive online open courses (MOOC) — courses with unlimited enrolment, that can be delivered entirely online and completed at a student’s own pace.
  • Cyber security — this is becoming increasingly important in edtech. Schools hold a large amount of personal data that needs to be secured in line with data law and regulations.
