Learning Impact Trend Framework
At the heart of the Learning Impact Program is the Learning Impact Trend Framework.
1EdTech uses a framework of future-ready technology trends to identify and track leading-edge concepts—in some cases, identified several years before they become mainstream. The Learning Impact Awards look for evidence that innovation is “crossing the chasm” into mainstream market adoption.
The project categories have evolved over the years as new priorities emerge and others become obsolete—often evidenced by the number and focus of the projects presented at each competition.
1EdTech adjusts the framework to reflect the evolving edtech landscape. Currently, there are 18 trends grouped into three main categories.
