While there is still debate about whether or not education technologies like digital textbooks and adaptive learning improve learning, the consensus seems to be that they will at least make lots of money. The New York Times this month tallied venture and equity financing for ed tech companies to be $1.87 billion last year, up 55 percent from the year before, according to a new report from CB Insights. Edsurge offers up some nifty graphs to help those interested in following the money. There are even emerging edtech boomtowns like Baltimore. At the risk of dating myself, this all seems vaguely familiar to the dotcom boom of late last century, with more talk of funding and options than products and services. — Kevin Hogan, Content Director
