I know some edtech companies smartly employ real teachers who work in real classrooms with real kids having real skills and difficulties. Or, at least, an edtech company should work in closer contact with students and teachers to know what's going on in schools. As for the challenges, I'd rank them in a list: 1) allow as much a personalized learning as possible. No two students are alike 2) provide users (both teachers and students) with software having a smooth learning curve: low floor + high ceiling 3) connect the software to the real world in general but also to THE real world of the students, otherwise they'll see it meaningless

They could always have a company that sends people into schools on a daily basis. So they work with children, teachers, business managers, admin staff, TAs and consultants - getting the information real-time and feeding it back to developers.

We have 12 engineers that are in schools all the time....

To be meaningful, the technology has to be relevant. This means it has to be up to date. This normally means it's expensive. If that means private funding from the private sector, then that's something worth exploring.
