INTRODUCTION
Education in New Zealand needs an upgrade,
“the gap between our high performing and low performing students remains one of the widest in the OECD.” (Ministry of Education NZ,
2010) In the last few years, rapid technological developments have given us the opportunity to level the playing field and allow all students the same opportunities to succeed. The
Ministry of Education (2010) has recognised that, “Digital Technologies have the potential to
improve student outcomes and to enrich, if not transform, the learning experience of
children.”
3. BUSINESS SECTION
3.1 Vision
To dramatically improve the education process for each and every child by using available technologies to deliver a high intelligence density to educators.
3.2 Industry Analysis:
Education Technology
 
Industry: The Education Technology industry young but swiftly-developing and it has great potential to improve the learning process for millions, if not billions, of children all over the world.
Force: High/Low: Justification: Buyer power: Low
Buyer power in this industry is very low due to the low level of alternate Education Technology Products. This industry is a very small one and as a result buyers have little idea as to what is worth the money.
 
 3 3
Supplier power: Low
Supplier power is low due to the malleable nature of the technology. There are many different firms that could develop and supply the required software. The technology industry is big and it is only going to grow. (PWC Global CEO Survey, 2014)
 Threat of new entrants: High
The resources required to make an application are limited and so the threat of new entrants to this industry is high.
Threat of substitutes: High
This industry is highly susceptible to the threat of substitute products, such as pen & paper. Furthermore, many believe that there is no value in Education Technology. (Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2005)
 Rivalry among existing competitors: Low
There is no well-established Education technology industry.
Overall attractiveness of the industry:
 This industry is relatively attractive to enter due to its relative infancy and lack of competition. However, the risk is high as the high risk of traditional substitutes and the propensity of many to shy away from Technology in Education.
3.3 Customers and Their Needs
The customers for TeachMe are Teachers and Students, this includes all levels of Education; primary, secondary and tertiary. Their needs are aligned and simple. Thus, they need their learning process to be worthwhile so to as to ensure success. (Molly Shields, 2014) Teachers faciliate and manage the learning process, while Students aim to understand the concepts being taught.
