A recent report from Metaari, entitled ‘The 2018 Global Learning Technology Investment Patterns: The Rise of the Edtech Unicorns’, revealed that the global edtech investments reached $16.3bn in 2018. Game-based learning and AI tools were particularly well funded, with China very much leading the way.

At ISE this year, huddle space was discussed both on the showfloor and in the conference sessions. The discussions focused on the design of a space, whether a classroom, workspace, store or any other environment in which AV technology plays a key role.
