  • An overview of Nesta’s work with technology organisations working to tackle teacher workload, in particular those focused on formative assessment and marking.
  • Examples of innovative practice to help remove some of the workload burden from assessment
  • What does future hold for technology and assessment? The opportunities and risks of AI in education.
  • Where are the gaps? Where more innovation is needed.
