Next steps for education technology in England
This Westminster Education Forum event is CPD certified and held on the morning of 28th November 2017; focusing on the priorities for education technology in England – looking at key issues for schools, suppliers and policymakers.
It follows the recent launch of EDUCATE, a collaborative project which aims to ensure UK products and services have real impact on learning and the agenda includes a keynote address from its director, Professor Rose Luckin. Professor Luckin was a judge for the 2017 e-Assessment Awards, so is well aware of the importance of e-Assessment in any such review of EdTech and we hope to see e-Assessment included as a vital and integral part of any such project.
The seminar also takes place in the context of renewed emphasis placed on digital skills in both the industrial strategy and the UK Digital Strategy published in March 2017.
From the event website:”
Attendees will look at the use of technology in schools and the barriers faced by them in engaging with edtech and key issues surrounding value for money. They will consider ways in which schools can determine the efficiency and effectiveness of tech products and services, how teachers’ confidence in the use of new technologies can be boosted and challenges for maximising educational outcomes from their use.
Further sessions will look at challenges and opportunities for edtech suppliers, including ways to navigate a post-Becta market, approaches for tackling current problems in teaching and learning and the key issues surrounding marketing to schools. Delegates will also consider ways in which government could provide more support to younger firms joining the market today.”
