Growth and Challenges in Digital Publication for Education

By all accounts, the future of digital publication for education hasn't changed—it's just been accelerated. While we are all tired of the pandemic, it's clear that the industry, which is poised to deliver incremental growth of $65.31B leading into 2025 is both accelerating, and at an important crossroad.

Gamification in Education is Proven Effective, What’s Next?

Gamification in the education market continues to accelerate unabated, with 30% growth forecasted over the next four years alone. Students across the country are benefiting from the proliferation of tools and services available via SaaS technology. The big question that producers of these newly adopted programs are grappling with is what to do next in order to expand services and increase market share?

Opportunities Arise as Technology Transforms Education 

Technology is transforming the U.S. and global education system at an accelerating rate. Before COVID, the lasting impact of technology on teaching and learning was nearing the tipping point. The vast majority of districts had broad rollouts of digital devices to every middle and high school student. Pandemic-induced virtual instruction required digital learning devices, high-speed internet at school and home, and learning management systems for every student, teacher, and administrator. A classroom without walls is now a reality for most students.

The Homework Debate and Why Publishers Care

For years there has been a growing debate among educators if homework provides additional learning reinforcement or additional stress at home. 

Reimagining Education to Support Student’s Needs

As we approach the 3rd year of the pandemic, we can look back at the crises that have affected the educational sector and how EdGate can help support the swift changes emerging in the classroom. From the need for more Social Emotional support, academic issues such as Unfinished Learning, and the shift to remote learning, educators are no longer asking, "How do we return to normal?" but how do they reimagine education.
