Exploring the DfE EdTech Strategy
Bob Harrison, Support for Education and Training

In this session, Bob will explore whether the new DfE EdTech Strategy, with such a narrow definition of education technology and with no mention of ‘learning’, will help or hinder schools in their efforts to innovate and prepare young people for a digital future as a citizen and employee. Bob will also update delegates on progress in the implementation of the new computing curriculum
