Each generation has its own characteristics. This influences behaviors and ways of learning.
A classroom with students sitting down writing down what the teacher writes on a slate is a very traditional format for a school. However, this format may no longer be ideal and the most productive.
Innovation is present in the most diverse areas and it is important that it be part, in an organic way, of these new learning formats.
And it was with this challenge that Uniway was created. Today's post will be very different: we will explain why Uniway is an edtech and what are the advantages of studying at a pioneer institution.
What is an edtech?
Edtech is an abbreviation for “education technology”, that is, it represents the fusion between education and technology. Applications, online courses and new platforms are some examples of edtech's activities.
To understand the impact of edtechs on the startup ecosystem in Brazil, according to the StartupBase, Brazil currently has 13,471 startups, of which 8,48% is active in the Education sector (edtechs). And obviously, the Uniway is one of them.
In addition, it is important to note that it is not only in schools and formal education (for example, Higher Education) that edtechs operate. Edtechs offer courses ranging from distance learning, corporate training and even language teaching.
And what are the advantages of studying at an edtech?
Edtechs are based on three principles:
- Accessibility: allow wider access through the use of technologies;
- Engagement: use of innovative practices to make the learning process more exciting;
- Customization: offer a customized experience for each student.
In addition to these advantages and facilities, in general edtechs offer more economical solutions, that is, with better cost x benefit.
Most of the time, edtech's educational solutions are cheaper than other traditional solutions.
Uniway: an edtech focused on results
Uniway wanted to bring innovation to the education sector, more specifically to the teaching of the English language oriented to the preparation for the proficiency exams, such as the TOEFL, TOEIC and IELTS.
