Taiwan’s Ministry of Education (MOE) announced a $672 million Digital Learning Improvement Project for 2022 to 2025.

Taiwan’s Ministry of Education (MOE) announced a $672 million Digital Learning Improvement Project for 2022 to 2025. Although acquisition of tablets for remote learning will account for most of the budget, $188 million will be allocated for digital content and software for G1-12. This presents opportunities for U.S. EdTech solution providers whose digital content pairs well with tablets. The Digital Learning Improvement Project supports Taiwan’s 2030 bilingual policy goal, which focuses on ensuring Taiwan’s K-12 students and its civil service become English-Mandarin bilingual by 2030.

To implement the Digital Learning Improvement Project, in April 2022 Taiwan’s MOE issued a tender or request for proposal (RFP) for EdTech solutions.  The RFP included a $47 million budget for K-12 schools’ procurement  of education instruction software each year until 2025. RFPs specify technology products eligible for schools to purchase using MOE funding.  Going forward, the MOE will release a new RFP every six months. U.S. EdTech solution providers can work with Taiwanese distributors to be listed on the MOE-approved purchasing list.
