The EdTech Expo
“The importance of edtech to the UK economy cannot be overstated, and it is the Department for International Trade’s ambition to see your industry play an increasingly central role in our export economy.” – Liam Fox, Secretary of State for International Trade.
The UK is home to more than 1,000 EdTech companies offering a wide range of innovative gadgets and software designed to revolutionise the way pupils are taught. British schools spend a combined £900m a year on education technology and are afforded a great deal of autonomy and freedom when it comes to finding new suppliers and experimenting with new approaches.
Critics argue that the UK’s educational sector is lagging behind when it comes to building a connected learning environment, therefore the sector must modernise an adapt in order to provide children and students with the skills they need. Compared to other industries, education still has a long way to go transforming into a truly digital industry.
Knowing the potential of the technology available is half the battle. The other half is deciding how best to apply these technologies in a classroom setting. However teachers decide to make use of these tools, the education sector must be prepared to meet the increasing power and data requirements in a way that is cost-effective.
The role of technology in education is vital, and the question is no longer if technology enhances learning, but rather how do we improve our use of technology to enhance learning? Many dynamic forces are shaping the future of edtech. Companies need to be aware of these forces, evaluate the impact, and shape their products accordingly.
Join us for The EdTech Expo which will bring together ideas, practices and technologies from across the education sector.
