Technology is at the forefront of so many sectors and has revolutionised a variety of operations. The potential applications for Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR) and integrated system are limitless, though the UK public sector is falling behind concerning this movement towards innovation. Small pockets of educational institutes have been recognised as implementing new technology to boost the classroom experiences and support teacher assessment workloads, though these are just a small number of cases of what could be a nationwide initiative.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson within his first month in office promised to improve education by investing over £14 billion in primary and secondary education between now and 2022/23. This would equate to every secondary school receiving a minimum of £5,000 per pupil next year (2019/20), with every primary school getting a minimum of £4,000 from 2021/22.
Educational Technology is an area that is gradually coming into focus amongst many schools and requires further action as Ty Goddard - Director, Education Foundation & Edtech UK states:
“Leadership of the sector is vital and the partnership between educators, manufacturers, vendors and the EdTech businesses themselves is of utmost priority”
Join us for an event that will uncover why EdTech needs to be the education sector’s greatest priority and how you can help generate transform through collaboration.
