More Ed, Less Tech at #EducationFest

I’m thrilled to be speaking again tomorrow at the Telegraph Education Festival. I’m in the ‘South Front One’ at 11.50am and the focus of my session will be looking at teaching, learning and technology.

I’ve spoken before at the Festival and attended other times too. It’s a great event normally and it’s a real privilege to be involved again, thank you.

My session titled ‘More Ed, Less Tech’ will examine the fetishisation of technology we see in many schools putting the technology before the thinking about teaching and learning. The ‘there’s an app for that’ culture that pervades many schools requires a shift in thinking towards putting more time and effort into teaching and learning and getting the conditions for success right before technology ever gets in the hands of children in a 1:1 style environment.
