Swedish EdTest – Sweden’s first national EdTech testbed, has been designed to help businesses sharpen the digital transformation of learning environments across the country. Connecting local schools and colleges with European technology providers, EdTest enables its participants to cooperate on product testing in real academic environments and prove the positive impact of solutions on learning. Furthermore, the programme empowers educational institutions to choose, try and implement EdTech solutions more effectively while experiencing the full support from vendors during the programme.
This spring, BeED proudly joins other EdTech providers to participate in the Swedish Edtest to obtain an evaluation of its solutions – LMS and Journeys – and to attract interest from local education professionals to practice more experiential learning activities in Swedish schools and beyond. Focused primarily on the secondary school segment for testing, BeED will allow teachers and students to appraise the following features of its system:
- Collaborative curriculum development
- Creation of engaging outdoor and classroom learning experiences
- Provision of personalised feedback for students
- Holistic evaluation of students with various criteria
- And many, many more
If you represent a Swedish school or college, sign up to participate in EdTest, identify your challenges or needs and find your perfect match with registered companies.
