Edtech: what does the future hold for teaching and learning?

27th March 2019 3/27/19 09:00-12:45

The government has called on the technology industry to drive improvements in England’s schools. So what opportunities does education technology (edtech) afford to teachers and learners, and does the use of it in classrooms present any additional challenges?

Join EPI for a half day conference to examine the potential of edtech to reduce teacher workload and increase opportunities for professional development, and to enhance learning – particularly for the most disadvantaged and vulnerable.

Keynote speakers include: the Minister for Children and Families, Nadhim Zahawi MP, to discuss how edtech can support teachers and leaders;  and Sir Kevan Collins (Chief Executive, Education Endowment Foundation) to discuss whether edtech can be used to narrow the attainment gap. Other speakers include: Geoff Barton (ASCL); Anna Bird (Behavioural Insights Team); Dr Alison Clark-Wilson (UCL, EDUCATE); David Laws (EPI); Natalie Perera (EPI); Jonathan Simons (Public First); Professor Samantha Twisleton (Hallam Institute of Education) and James Zuccollo (EPI).

EPI is very grateful to Renaissance Learning for supporting this event.
