In Seoul, some schools have gone away from the traditional chalkboards and have moved on to digital whiteboards. Many classrooms also have iPads for their students. Technology, especially the internet, has significantly impacted teachers’ ability to access content, resources, and class materials. Now Edtech SaaS startups in Korea are looking to disrupt the industry even more by bringing in classroom management solutions for both public and private learning institutions in Korea.

Teachers were able to use a variety of digital learning tools in their classrooms to increase student engagement. In addition, many agencies have helped teachers in Korea improve their lesson plans and facilitate a more personalized learning approach. Most of all, by incorporating these technologies, students could build essential 21st-century skills. Virtual classrooms, augmented reality, robots, and other technology tools can make the class more lively. In addition, they can also create more inclusive learning environments that foster collaboration and curiosity and enable teachers to collect data on student performance.

Here are some Edtech SaaS startups in Korea offering innovative class management solutions using the latest technologies.
