The event will bring together parliamentarians, researchers and school leaders to examine the new understanding of digital technology in the education sector and how EdTech can improve the learning and teaching experience.

 

EdTech has been in use for many years, but during the period of partial school closures it became one of the primary means of delivering education to most children. Schools, colleges, and universities across the country transitioned from whiteboards to keyboards. Over the past year, teachers, students, parents, and suppliers have achieved a greater understanding of what EdTech can (and cannot) do.

With pupils now back in the classroom, this meeting will look at the role EdTech could play in helping to accelerate learning post-pandemic. The discussion will cover curriculum delivery and embracing the pedagogic advances that EdTech allows, as well as how EdTech can support catch-up initiatives.

The session will also reflect on how digital learning is changing who and what we interact with, relationships with parents and teachers and EdTech's role in tackling educational inequality.

Confirmed speakers:

Keynote: Sir Kevan Collins, Education Recovery Commissioner, Department for Education

Damian Hinds MP, EdTech APPG Chair

Fiona Aubrey-Smith, Director, One Life Learning

Tom Harbour, CEO, Learning with Parents
