The top three revenue-generating application segments of the global K-12 technology training for teachers market are discussed below:

Content creation

Content creation for K-12 students in this digital age is a challenging task. Due to the increasing number of flipped classrooms and the introduction of blended learning in K-12 schools, there is an increased need to diversify the digital content. Since there is an increase in the use of BYOD policies in K-12 schools, teachers are rapidly engaging students in creating content for self-studies.

According to Jhansi Mary, a lead K-12 and higher education research analyst from Technavio, "Teachers are increasingly required to use technological tools for creating infographics, digital storytelling, social bookmarking, bibliography, web conferencing, and creating videos or podcasts. The content to be delivered to students varies from grade to grade. For early kindergarten and elementary standards, the content created should be visually appealing, with the incorporation of animation, as children learn and follow cartoons or animated characters quickly."


Many K-12 schools are adopting the formative assessment pattern in which students are assessed at intervals unlike a test conducted at the end of the term (summative assessment). The implementation of formative assessments provides an effective feedback to teachers and helps students clear their doubts.

"Technological tools, such as Socrative and formative assessment, which provide a quick feedback, allow teachers to see individual student performances and gauge their progress. Another way to examine whether students have understood the concepts being taught are by creating live quiz games by using tools, such as Quizlet Live, Quizizz, and Kahoot. Sometimes, teachers embed videos and convert the teaching process into a game by integrating presentation and quiz tools in the SMART Lab," adds Jhansi.

Collaborative learning

Collaborative learning is one of the key developments in K-12 schools worldwide. The rising popularity of the Internet has resulted in the growth of education via videoconferencing and other collaborative learning tools. This requires teachers to be equipped with the necessary technological skills before engaging in discussions with students, thus resulting in the growth of the global K-12 technology training for teachers market.

Collaborative learning can be best achieved only when the instructors are properly trained on how to accomplish the learning process. For this, vendors are coming up with innovative ways for teachers to get trained in new collaborative learning technologies, such as Google (News - Alert) Docs, BigMarker, SlideRocket, MindMeister, and ProofHub, thus, augmenting the growth of the market.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio's research analysts in this report are:

  • edX
  • European Schoolnet
  • NIIT
  • Pearson
