IE is launching this initiative to lead the wave of disruptive innovations in Higher Education. We aim to support the EdTech revolution to make sure that IE´s students and faculty benefit from the latest technologies and innovations across IE´s programs.
We want to bring all the value IE has to offer to every start up we partner with, identifying companies that can benefit from our support, our innovative & entrepreneurial mindset and world class mentors, helping them grow from early stage to more mature stages.
We are looking for technology and innovations to be applied in Higher Education & ExecEd, no matter if the startup´s activity currently applies to the field of Education or EdTech.
While IE is open to all areas, we would like to point some of the most interesting for us:
We aim to make teaching and learning more effective with the use of data. Understanding how to improve instructor effectiveness, improving assesments, learning interventions and student engagement is a key area of focus at IE across data provided by IE´s blended programs, pure online programs and MOOC´s.
We are interested in new tools, technology and methodologies to improve collaborative learning in higher education, raising the learning outcomes and fostering the sense of presence and community among students remotedly connected. Methods for examining collaborative learning processes such as conversation analysis are also welcome.
We are interested in technologies that can respond to student interactions in real time by automatially providing the student with individual support. Adaptive content, adpative assesment and adaptive sequencing.
We are looking forward to the next wave: Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality and Virtual Reality, and how they can provide realistic experiences that are both educational and entertaining, increasing student engagment and enriching their learning experiences.
to improve digital content creation, curation and sequencing, including videos and games. We are also looking for tools to increase the creation and delivery of content directy applicable professionally, in order to nurture entrepreneurship, employability and career development.
