Last year, the Futures Forum on Learning launched the global Tools Competition to fund edtech tools, technologies, and platforms to combat the crisis of pandemic-related learning loss and build the field of learning engineering. The competition generated significant interest—receiving nearly 900 proposals from 55 countries. Following a multi-phase judging process, 18 winning teams, made up of entrepreneurs, learning scientists, and researchers from around the world, were selected to receive more than $1.5 million in funding.
We are excited to announce that this year’s Learning Engineering Tools Competition is now open. Thanks to a growing number of sponsors, we expect to award $4 million in prizes to teachers, students, researchers, technologists, and edtech leaders more than double the previous year’s prize purse. This will be one of the largest edtech competitions ever convened.
