NewSchools' Breakdown of 2012 K-12 Edtech Funding

DRILLING DOWN: Following up on his breakdown of K-12 edtech funding in 2012, NewSchools analyst David Havens further dissects the deals between technology for schools and teachers (K-12 specific platforms and teacher tools) and more "consumer" technology for supplemental learning outside of schools (content, test prep, college readiness, language learning). We find ourselves having to squint rather hard to distinguish between the similar shades of blue in this graph, but it appears that investments at the seed stage were roughly split between K-12 tools and those intended for use outside of classroom. At later stages, though, more money seems to flow to the latter. (Of course, Desire2Learn's whopping $80 million Series A skews everything just a bit.)
