Eton College Embraces EdTech
The 574-year old, all-boys British High School, Eton College, has partnered with Emerge Venture Lab. A party will take place today, January 17, 2014, to celebrate the first cohort of six start-ups.
Head of information technology at Eton and Executive Director of the newly-formed Eton Online Ventures, Percy Harrison stated:
“Nobody knows for sure where this business is going to be in five to ten years’ time. It would be very foolish of us to bury our heads in the sand and assume that education in schools will carry on in the traditional way.”
