Innovation in Education Conference

Annual spending on technology in schools is £900 million

From interactive whiteboards as a basic classroom staple to introducing coding into the primary school curriculum, it is clear that the use of technology in schools in not just growing, it is becoming essential. In the UK, annual spending on technology in schools is £900 million, with this number set to increase in coming years. Whilst some critics have argued that this prevalence of technology has not improved attainment levels, many who work directly with children in the classroom praise technology for its ability to make students feel engaged and empowered. In addition to this, experts argue that it is using technology to teach a traditional syllabus that fails to raise attainment, whereas using technology to truly innovate teaching can create real change. The government has recognised this need for an innovative approach to technology in schools, introducing significant changes to the curriculum in 2013 and increasing technology funding.


Join us for Innovation in Education: Enhanced learning and engagement through technology to get exclusive insights from key policy makers on the following topics:

  • Enhance – How can technology be used to enhance the learning environment and improve curriculums?

  • Engage – What evidence is there that technology affects student engagement, and how can this evidence be used to create real change?

  • Innovate – Why is innovative use of technology, rather than just innovations in technology, so important when it comes to equipping children with the skills for a digital world?
