EdTech in the UK is more attractive than ever to overseas investors, attracting nearly half of all investment in educational technology in Europe. With over 1,000 companies providing educational platforms for both children and adults alike, as well as a thriving research and development scene, the UK provides an excellent base for EdTech opportunities.

IMPROVING CHILDREN'S ABILITY TO CONCENTRATE

Nuance Hearing, a focused listening tech startup, has launched the Voice Selector Study, aimed at helping young people focus in confusing classrooms, and listen to teachers without getting distracted.


The technology includes eight built-in microphones installed all around the classroom. These microphones track the teacher’s (or the dominant speaker’s) voice and transfer it to a small device located on the students’ tables. These devices are compatible with any wired headphones. The level of background noise is turned down as well.


While this device can help any student who is struggling to focus in learning environments, the technology can be especially helpful for those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), auditory processing difficulties (APD), or Autism spectrum disorder (ASD). These are known to cause concentration issues. Learn more about it here.

BIBLIU RAISES £12M FOR IMPROVING EDTECH IN OTHER COUNTRIES

BibliU, a learning enablement platform, has raised £12 million in Series B funding.


The platform was created to allow easy access to textbooks and materials, as well as help tackle long-standing issues associated with higher education. With the funds, the company plans to expand into the US market. That includes product development, new publisher partnerships, sales, and marketing.


According to statistics, 65% of US students do not purchase whole courses due to high costs, while 70% of students in the UK admit to skipping buying learning materials. The company’s solution is to aggregate digital content from thousands of publishers and open educational resources on one platform for the same price, per student, per class.

BRIGHTON-BASED COMPANY LAUNCHES A SKILL-SHARING PLATFORM

PIGEON’s creators are aiming at unlocking the potential talents of British people so that more of them could educate themselves and teach others.


The platform’s video chats allow so-called ‘Sharers’ to teach ‘Learners’ their passions, hobbies, and interests. You can join for £4.99 per month or ‘Pay as you Chat’. Those, who offer their skills, can set their own hourly rate starting at £12 an hour.


At the moment, PIGEON is focusing on cooking. However, they plan to broaden the offered skills range, including handcrafts, DIY, languages, home fitness, and well-being. Learn more about it here.

£1M RAISED BY A TUTORING APP

Another education-focused platform has received £1 million in investments from UK startup investor Jenson Funding Partners, US VC firm Sequoia, and others.


Studeo’s users are able to choose a tutor based on their credentials. The app offers access to short 5-minute videos. These videos include summarised information. Each one also comes with in-video exercises and questions included. Learn more about it here.
