REPORT RELEASE! Education Technology in India: Designing Ed-Tech for Affordable Private Schools

Education technology interventions have promised the reinvention of education for children in the developing world. But time and again these interventions have failed to reach their potential due to a lack of understanding of the school environment and users, leading to poor implementation of the product.

As a team of researchers in Hyderabad, India, we sought to understand how education technology solutions could be better designed to serve the needs of users. Insights were garnered from surveys, interviews, various human-centered design research methods, and secondary research conducted in 2012 and 2013 in Hyderabad, India.

We are proud to share our findings, released in the report, which you can download at this link:

Education Technology in India – Designing Ed-Tech for Affordable Private Schools

Our hope is that the information provided in Education Technology in India will act as a foundation for better-designed technology in places that could reap the most benefit from well-designed product interventions.

Please read and share our report widely among your friends and colleagues and via social media.
