About Us

What is INETA?

Indonesian Edtech Association. Founded in early 2018 to be a platform that brings together all Edtech actors in Indonesia.

Apa itu INETA?

Asosiasi EdTech Indonesia. Didirikan pada awal 2018 untuk menjadi platform yang menyatukan semua aktor Edtech di Indonesia.

Why we do what we do?

INETA aims to amplify the presence of Edtech organizations and activities in Indonesia to the public. There have been little awareness among Indonesians on Edtech and its potentials. Uniting the voices of Edtech actors in this platform can help people capture the bigger picture of Edtech world and grasp the idea of how technology helps us educate better—more effectively, more efficiently.

Given the fact that education is heavily regulated by the Government, INETA also operates as a political body which articulates, proposes, and defends our aggregate interests within decision making process. We want to actively participate in policy making that shapes the world of education in Indonesia. We will synergize with the Government and provide them recommendation based on our expertise and experience in educating Indonesian children.

INETA acknowledges and highly values the importance of scientific insights in every field of life, especially education. To ensure that we are moving toward education ideals, we build a research center focusing on education-related topics. We want to stimulate more research on education, especially ones that lead to groundbreaking insights.

Mengapa dan Apa yang Kami Lakukan?

INETA bertujuan untuk memperkuat kehadiran organisasi dan kegiatan Edtech di Indonesia kepada publik. Kecilnya kesadaran di antara orang Indonesia tentang Edtech dan potensinya. Menyatukan suara para aktor Edtech dalam platform ini dapat membantu orang menangkap gambaran besar dunia Edtech dan memahami gagasan tentang bagaimana teknologi membantu kita mendidik dengan lebih baik — lebih efektif, lebih efisien.

Mengingat fakta bahwa pendidikan sangat diatur oleh Pemerintah, INETA juga beroperasi sebagai badan politik yang mengartikulasikan, mengusulkan, dan membela kepentingan agregat kita dalam proses pengambilan keputusan. Kami ingin berpartisipasi aktif dalam pembuatan kebijakan yang membentuk dunia pendidikan di Indonesia. Kami akan bersinergi dengan Pemerintah dan memberikan rekomendasi berdasarkan keahlian dan pengalaman kami dalam mendidik anak-anak Indonesia.

INETA mengakui dan sangat menghargai pentingnya wawasan ilmiah di setiap bidang kehidupan, terutama pendidikan. Untuk memastikan bahwa kami bergerak menuju cita-cita pendidikan, kami membangun pusat penelitian yang berfokus pada topik yang berhubungan dengan pendidikan. Kami ingin merangsang lebih banyak penelitian tentang pendidikan, terutama yang mengarah pada wawasan inovatif.
