This event brings together new and emerging edtech platforms and the educators who use them. There will be keynote speeches from high profile edtech experts and seminars facilitated by education influencers.
By the end of the day, you will have explored a variety of edtech tools that have convincing evidence of their effectiveness. You will also understand many of the challenges that education faces in trying to educate young people in the digital age.
When you walk through the door you will be greeted by a range of new edtech tools. The difference between this and other events is that the edtech providers will be equipped to answer the ‘so what?‘ questions.
These questions will include:
- What is the impact of this edtech tool?
- What is the evidence that it works?
- How will it help my learners?
- What are the potential problems and how may these by overcome?
