Continuing Innovation in EdTech in a post-lockdown world
Fiona Kempton, consultant teacher, digital strategy, The Girls'‚Äč Day School Trust
There can be no doubt that schools have made rapid progress in their application of EdTech in the past 18 months. Lockdown forced learning online and gave schools less than a week to plan how they would facilitate this. Fiona will discuss reasons why innovation in EdTech should continue and how to facilitate this when working with teachers who may be ‘tech fatigued’.

Closing keynote
Mark Gallaway, regional coordinator for the National STEM Ambassador programme for educational charity STEMPOINT East
