EdTech Month

The rapid advancement of AI and other technologies is poised to reshape the modern classroom and workplace, ushering a new era of unprecedented changes in the WHY, WHAT and HOW of learning.


EdTech Month 2023 is designed for people interested in the new frontiers of learning and opportunities. It will be a month-long programme with activities designed for educators, business executives, edtech startups, investors, students and parents.



We shall bring together thought leaders and practitioners from around the world to deep dive into the changing faces of education and workforce development and the role of technology (particularly generative AI) as a catalyst for change. You will learn what is trending in the world of education technology at the EdTech Month Summit, have hands-on experience with innovative education technology solutions and look into the most topical issues in the edtech world with experts. We shall also take you to the Greater Bay Area to keep abreast of the developments in China's edtech market.  Registrations are now open for:
