A tech-education company once owned by Apple Inc. (AAPL) on Thursday said it is launching new data analysis tools for millions of educators using its distance learning platform. With the learning gap growing as school closures continue because of the COVID-19 pandemic, data visualization will help educators identify and address gaps with personalized learning and resources, according to PowerSchool, which was part of Apple from 2001 to 2006. An estimated $8 trillion will be spent worldwide on education by 2025, with much of the growth in EdTech fueled by artificial intelligence. The number of students logging onto online classes has declined 43% since the start of remote learning, while the amount of students completing at least one virtual lesson decreased 44%, according to an Achieve3000 report.
