A lucrative growth area for technology companies and new entrants has opened up as a result of the digitization of education. Leading companies such as Google, Apple and Microsoft are racing to ensure technology from each brand is at the forefront of the classroom of tomorrow.

The business opportunities in doing so are substantial. New entities have sprung up to capture the expanding market for education that falls outside of schools and universities, made possible by developments in online learning. Learning environments are changing at a rapid pace, driven by the growing demand for incorporating digital technology.

Across leading education systems greater amounts of investment are being placed into personalized learning, capturing the attention of companies such as Apple, keen to gain a presence in what is probably going to become a very lucrative market.
