We encourage EdTech developers to fulfill their education mission.

      

We empower EdTech enterprises with the know-how to build better.

 

We reward excellence in enterprises that build with integrity - so the education ecosystem knows who to trust.

Our team and partners are chosen with mission alignment and curiosity about how to build better, more empowering tools.

2020

DOCTORAL THESIS SUCCESSFULLY DEFENDED

Thesis is submitted to the UCL Institute of Education, University College London in October and defended in December. The main contribution of the body of work is the Evidence-informed Learning Technology Enterprise (ELTE) Framework - a ground-breaking holistic model suggesting the there are six dimensions that must be considered when assessing the potential for EdTech enterprises to deliver on their mission (AKA the 6 Superpowers of EdTech Enterprises).

Founder's Manifesto

A note from Dr. Anissa Moeini:

 

Unlocking EdTech’s potential to fulfill its promise.

 

“Technology products are dynamic, and in particular, emerging technology products pivot at a fast pace; however, research is generally slow and measured. Research must fit into the world of technology if it is to work for entrepreneurs of emerging EdTech companies.” (Moeini, 2020)

 

At Goldstar, our team wants to contribute to a world where all humanity has universal access to high quality education. Education in the 2000s doesn’t look so different from education in the 1900- a teacher from 100 years ago would not be so out of place in most school classrooms today. We know EdTech has a big part to play in enriching the educational experience of learners. We work to fill critical gaps in knowledge with rigorous, world-class research that supports us to move to the new era of education. 

 

Around the world, thousands of startups are working to develop digital tools and resources to address countless global, national and local educational needs. Our research is dedicated to uncovering the Superpowers of impactful EdTech companies and unlocking the potential of their products to serve learners.

 

We are committed to expanding beyond the education space, acknowledging that our impact measurement tools are sector agnostic, and though education is our passion, our tool will help social enterprises building healthtech, greentech and beyond.

If you are:

  • a startup that wants to measure your impact potential,

  • an accelerator supporting EdTech enterprises develop their impact narrative, 

  • a learner, teacher or buyer that is unsure who to trust when choosing a new product, 

  • an investor who wants feedback on the potential of companies you are looking to work with, or

  • a foundation looking for great companies to support,

Our values are encouragement, empowerment, excellence, integrity, empathy, and curiosity and we strive to bring them into all that we do.  We look forward to the possibility of working with you to achieve our common mission and raise the quality of education to new heights.
