Edutech fund

EduTech Fund is a platform for schools in Aruba to submit applications (project concepts) to implement innovation in education pilot projects, designed by the schools based on innovation opportunities they identify. In the past Futura regularly received 'funding requests' or applications for school projects, and where eligible, most of the project design was constructed by Futura in consultation with the school and stakeholders. This new EduTech Fund is meant to move away from incomplete 'funding requests', and move towards funding complete applications and well-thought out projects by the schools themselves. In this way, Futura can collaborate with- and support more initiatives at once, and share evaluated data with the necessary educational stakeholders.

Main Goal:

Just like the previous school year, for the 2023/2024 school year, the EduTech Fund aims to stimulate innovation, technology, and interactivity in the Aruban classrooms, by awarding grants to innovation pilot projects designed by schools, teachers, and students in Aruba.
