Educational technology (EdTech) has become an integral part of education – it enables blended and hybrid teaching, equips lecturers with digital tools, and facilitates innovation with digitalisation. And these are just a few examples of the possibilities EdTech offers. EdTech has the potential to improve learning presentations and the process and content of education, as well as to better meet the needs of the labour market and society.
There is a huge EdTech offering, which learners and lecturers aren’t t yet able to use optimally. Also, educational institutions are often dependent on large EdTech companies. The pilot hub aims to better align the demands of educational institutions and the supply of EdTech companies. This will allow institutions to better adhere to our public values. The procurement process is an important pillar in this: in the pilot hub, we focus on guiding and stimulating innovative ways of procurement. We also focus on developing sustainable adoption and thoughtful use of EdTech by lecturers within educational institutions.
