A new education technology event in November, The Edtech Summit, will help schools, colleges, and universities improve their digital strategies.
The Edtech Summit, taking place 18-19 November at the NEC in Birmingham, will bring educators, education technology suppliers, senior industry leaders and 100 high-profile speakers together to discuss how to “bridge the gap between education and technology”.
It will run alongside the bi-annual Schools & Academies Show, the UK’s largest education policy event organised by GovNet.
The event’s agenda has been led by a steering committee of sector leaders:
- Bukky Yusuf, senior leader, Edith Kay School
- Dr Michael Flavin, senior lecturer in global education, King’s College London
- Faye Saadieh, policy and communications advisory, edtech delivery unit, Department for Education
- Ian Myatt, director of insight, channels and educational enterprise, University of Birmingham
- Jen Halmshaw, edtech delivery unit, Department for Education
- Michael Forshaw, founder and CEO, EdTech Impact; founder and CEO, Innovate My School
- Toby Baker, programme manager, Nesta
- Vikki Liogier, national head of edtech and digital skills, education and training foundation
“We feel that there is currently no other event in the UK that hosts this type of high-level, strategic discussion about the end-to-end process of specifying, procuring and then implementing EdTech,” said Chris Callaghan, event director, EdTech Summit.
“As such, we are excited to be working with respected practitioners and organisations across all education levels to bring this event to life and provide the community with a place to meet, network and discuss the successes and challenges of creating and implementing digital strategies.”
