The pandemic is changing a lot of habits, including how education is being delivered.
While the government and big corps should be responsible for providing the necessary infrastructure and connectivity, startups can help schools/teachers to better connect with their students!
The key pain point from the teacher's perspective is to create new digital contents, so that he/she can teach and manage kids effectively online; while from the parent and student's perspective, it will be very important to figure out how to keep the kid focused and stay motivated when learning at home with less in-person monitoring.
At the end of the day, education is supposed to provide a level ground for the next generation, no matter whether they are the haves or not-haves, so that given their hard works and efforts they will at least have their fair share of opportunities in the society down the road.
From an investment perspective, I do believe that investing in Edtech is very meaningful in the sense that on top of making business returns to sustain, you are actually building a lot of social values in giving back to the society, and equipping the next generation
