£20m EdTech hub to be set up with aid money

The University of Cambridge is to take part in a global research initiative to improve the use of education technology, being set up with support from the UK government and the World Bank.

The government will be contributing £20 million of UK aid money towards the EdTech Hub, which will aim to develop new technologies and learning software for children.

Half of this money will go towards research focused on education technology in low-income countries, the Department for International Development said on 18 June. A further 35 per cent of the funding will be spent on research synthesis, dissemination and supporting other governments, while the remaining 15 per cent will be spent on innovation and horizon scanning.
