Hear from the ETF’s experts at The EdTech Summit 2020

Experts from the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) will be speaking at The EdTech Summit – a new education technology (EdTech) event taking place on 18 and 19 November.

This two-day virtual summit will include a range of themes, topics and speakers designed to help educational institutions align their digital strategies with their teaching and learning strategy. It will be run alongside the bi-annual Schools & Academies Show, the UK’s largest education policy event organised by GovNet.

With the use of EdTech in schools and Further Education (FE) providers rapidly increasing, especially with Covid-19 challenges, attendees will have the opportunity to network, share their own successes and overcome shared challenges.

The summit’s agenda has been led by a steering committee of recognised leaders in the sector including the ETF’s Vikki Liogier, National Head of EdTech and Digital Skills. Vikki will be opening the virtual event on day one alongside Alessandro Bilotta, Content Lead at the EdTech Summit.
