Over the past few years, EdTech has evolved from “hardware-focused” thinking to today’s intricate combination of software and hardware to create seamless services. The ultimate goal is to allow teachers to kindle a passion of education among their students by mastering an array of fast-changing technologies. Technology can help students and teachers reach greater educational potentials by combining EdTech software and hardware services.
With this goal in mind, OneScreen has resolved technical complexity and created a customized Education-as-a-Service (EaaS) IoT offering. The platform provides solutions that combine software and hardware using innovative technologies such as 5G/4G/Wi-Fi connectivity, edge computing, AI, and the cloud to transform classrooms and campuses into an exciting digital, integrated learning experience. At the same time, students can count on equal access to a healthy, safe learning environment tailored to their specific requirements – no matter where they are.
The pace of technological change in the world beyond the classroom has made the development of intelligent EdTech a must. According to Research and Markets, the revenue generated by the world’s education technology sector is expected to grow beyond US$234.41 billion by 2027, driven by demand for innovations like EaaS.
“With the continuous evolution of smart education, NewSoft has helped many schools in Taiwan establish smart classrooms by introducing hardware such as electronic whiteboards and tablets,” said Asen Wei, general manager of NewSoft Technology Corp. “We have worked with the Education Bureaus in many counties and cities to jointly develop interactive educational software.
