Eton Online Ventures
Eton College has set up a new company, Eton Online Ventures, to work with technologists, educators and entrepreneurs to develop new approaches to education. We will be using Eton's experience of educational change and development alongside modern technology to bring exciting and effective new products to the online marketplace.
Eton believes the time is ripe for edupreneurs to develop ways to use technology to challenge fundamentally the traditional methods of teaching and learning rather than simply providing enhanced learning support. Eton believes in the power of technology to transform the delivery of education and educational outcomes for students worldwide by
- facilitating collaborative learning, encouraging students to appreciate the importance of teamwork and the contribution that others can make
- fostering self-confidence, enthusiasm, perseverance, and respect for the individual.
- widening access to the most effective educational methods and resources
The latest development in this area is the creation of EtonX, a wholly owned trading subsidiary of Eton College. EtonX will partner with leading schools in China to deliver courses built on Eton’s style of education.
Eton is now is its second year as secondary education partner of Emerge Education working with EdTech startups to provide advice and mentorship and allowing our pupils to experiment with and pass comment on some of the most up-to-the-minute educational developments.
We are actively seeking new partners and new projects. If you are interested in working with the Eton Online Ventures team, please send a message.
