MARK WOODLAND: DISRUPTING EDUTECH
CEO of Xplor- Mark Woodland is a recognised thought leader in the edu-tech space, and a current BRW Young Rich List member. Woodland witnessed first-hand the need for customised technology within the education sector, after working alongside his mum in Aussie childcare centres.
His team at Xplor now design software and technology solutions which mean educators can spend fewer hours focused on compliance, rostering and other time-consuming operational tasks – and have greater capacity to provide improved educational outcomes for children and families. Woodland’s mantra is ‘education before administration’.
Dynamic Business had a chat to Woodland about his experiences disrupting the edutech industry.

The Educator App is designed to streamline compliance requirements for the Australian childcare sector.

Now available for free to Australian childcare operators – the Educator App will streamline and simplify compliance requirements, and set a new benchmark for the sector. Read more
