EdTech industry collaboration to help schools and colleges deal with CV19 and the need for home learning

786 people attended

Sign up to an open-access online summit for all teachers and senior school leaders to learn from each other and hear what curated EdTech resources (both online and offline) are available to set up effective homeschooling.

The event is 90 minutes, which we understand is a great undertaking of your time, especially given the current climate. Therefore we wish to outline that you can attend just the first half and then drop off. We have created the first half to give the most immediate value to schools and colleges. The second 45 minutes gives you the chance to hear from the big tech companies and the DfE. You are also able to just attend the sessions that are most useful to you, rather than the entire event. Please review the agenda for precise timings.

Areas that will be explored (each session is 20 minutes):

  1. How are schools and colleges responding - sharing how they are planning
  2. The best-curated resources available 
  3. How big tech is responding
  4. Understanding schools and colleges needs  

Lord Jim Knight, Mary Curnock Cook OBE and Nic Newman (DfE EdTech leadership group) will be facilitating.

We will be joined by the Department of Education online who want to understand more about the needs of schools and colleges in this time of difficult transition.
