With millions of students still learning in remote or blended settings, we’re looking for ed-tech startups creating solutions to improve online learning experiences whether in the classroom or not. The eight ventures selected into this year’s class will build on a history of innovation that began with the Accelerator’s creation in 2015. Whether through free online learning libraries, science-based gamification or virtual reality field trips, the 40-plus startups that have participated in the program have enriched the lives of more than 45 million young people, driving ed-tech adoption and creating equity in education.
