At a time of tightening budgets, school leaders must look closely at all line items on their budget and question how essential they are. Expenditure on EdTech will be no exception.

However, many EdTech innovations are emerging that can help bring about the school improvement that is needed, generating efficiencies and saving teachers’ time like never before.

From apps that are aspiring to be the Uber of supply teaching, to cutting-edge platforms and assessment tools allowing school data to be analysed in innovative new ways, many EdTech companies are aiming to enhance teaching and learning experiences across the UK and in doing so, transform the way that schools operate – saving them both time and money. As well as playing a unprecedented role in helping to raise standards of attainment; and improving the quality of what is taught and how it is taught.

As part of London EdTech Week, a panel of experts from the education sector will discuss the potential of EdTech to help enable future school improvement, drawing upon case studies from the industry, evidence of efficacy and looking ahead to the next generation of EdTech innovations.
