Edutainment – the melding of education and entertainment – enhances the learning process and helps address changing job profiles to meet the educational needs of future generations.
We develop skills and acquire knowledge best when we are actively engaged in the learning process. Edutainment brings the solutions, content, systems, and tools that enable the world of digital media and entertainment into an educational setting. This, in turn, makes the learning process not only more cost efficient and scalable, but also more personal, interactive, and effective.
What is more, innovations in edutainment are making education more accessible and affordable for people everywhere. Digital solutions can reach students in remote regions of the world at a fraction of the cost of the traditional approach, aligning well with goal 4 of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
As a relatively young investment theme, mostly small- and mid-cap companies occupy this space; these companies and are not listed in major indices and thus provide interesting investment opportunities.
The digitalization of society and the spread of automation are changing job profiles worldwide and driving the need for continuous retraining and upskilling. Innovative solutions and technologies can help address these issues, providing the flexibility to learn anytime and anywhere.
Digital penetration in the education industry – one of the most important sectors of the global economy – is still low but rapidly accelerating. A strong job market and the shift to hybrid forms of learning and working are creating tremendous business opportunities for companies in the edtech sector. In the post-pandemic landscape, new and more efficient forms of education delivery are emerging and redefining our understanding of what education is, who provides it, and how.
