Description

Technology is changing but is education changing with technology?

It’s one of the reasons why Education Secretary Damian Hinds has called on the tech industry to launch an “education revolution” for schools, colleges and universities.

The minister says while some schools are using technology to bring education to life by enabling students to take virtual trips through the Amazon for example, they remain very much in the minority.

There’s no denying the growth of the EdTech sector – evidenced by Indian education start-up Byju’s ability to raise $540 million in funding in December – but how do schools balance technology against Ofsted’s test results –first approach?

There’s growing evidence that while more students want to work digitally they’re being held back by the lack of a clear UK-wide digital strategy and inadequate classroom technology provision.

BusinessCloud’s latest InSights conference will shine a light on the EdTech sector and hear from some of the disrupters that are shaking up an industry that has long been ripe for disruption.

Schools, colleges and universities sit on a wealth of data but how does that translate into effective learning? How will artificial intelligence change EdTech? Who are the EdTech disrupters and what can the rest of the industry learn off them?

BusinessCloud latest Insights conference will answer these and many more questions as it lifts the lid on the multi-billion pound EdTech industry.
