Smartphone adoption is rising fast
The Ericsson Mobility Report of june 2015 states that
Smartphone subscriptions are set to more than double by 2020. By this time, 70 percent of the World´s population (6.1 Billion people) will have a smartphone.
Most mobile broadband devices are, and will continue to be, smartphones. Many consumers in developing markets first experience the internet on a smartphone, usually due to limited access to fixed broadband. 2014 saw more than 700 million smartphone subscriptions added, due to the addition of new subscribers and existing subscribers exchanging their basic phones for smartphones. It took over five years to reach the first billion smartphone subscriptions, a milestone that was hit in 2012, and less than two years to reach the second billion. Almost 80% of the smartphones added by year end 2020 will be from Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa.
Right Place, Right Time
Schoolhere Ltd is in the right place at the right time to help improve education in the UK and throughout the world.
Taking India as an example. Demand for education is rising. UK education expertise is highly valued and sort after. While smartphone ownership and internet access is increasing. However costs of 'in person' on the ground training are high, so digital technology is being seen as an increasingly favourable option. Similar opportunities apply in Africa,China and in other parts of the world.
In the UK opportunities exist in individual tutoring, group tutoring, online masterclasses for schools and in sharing good teaching practice and continuous professional development for teachers.
