Welcome to the 1EdTech Foundation

The 1EdTech Foundation is a public charity that powers learner potential by accelerating an educational technology ecosystem that underlies new lifelong educational models where:

 

Every Student Matters

Every learner has the power to change the world. Educational success now and into the future calls for a focus on equity, agency, and mastery: learners changing the world through their passion.

 

Authentic Learning is the Benchmark

Learners are challenged to invent a better future for themselves and others. Subject matter is learned because it is relevant.

 

Achievement Enables Opportunity

Learners have a story to tell—their own. Achievements are captured into records that are owned, curated, and support connecting an individual’s unique path to rapidly evolving opportunities.

 

The Power of 1EdTech: Together, We're a Force to Be Educated With

An open technology platform based on open standards means the sector invests together, innovation continues to flourish, and all communities get to the future faster.

Equity is enabled by the freedom to choose the best set of curriculum products, learning platforms, and tools without limits from proprietary platforms.

Effective use of educational data that helps every student, institution, and edtech supplier, requires cooperation on infrastructure trusted by all stakeholders.

"We see great potential for 1EdTech to save the district time and money in our work with suppliers, by providing detailed information on what works and what doesn't in a fraction of the time we currently must invest to launch a new integration. We expect 1EdTech to accelerate our progress toward a robust digital landscape."
