Why edtech fails – and how to buck the trend
Jodie Lopez, ex-primary teacher turned edtech ninja superhero
Whether or not you think technology has the power to transform learning, what we can usually agree on is that technology can make us more efficient. So why does educational technology keep failing and what happens to all that dusty tech in cupboards and all those CD Roms no-one uses anymore? Jodie will look at common reasons for the failure of education technology and how we can all work together to prevent it happening again and again.
 
11:50 – 12:10
STEM, the key to creating skills for the future
Will Glass, 3D Product Specialist, ArtSystems
The effects of Industry 4.0 will be profound on our society, influencing our daily lives. Importantly, it will affect the way we design, develop and manufacture products. This will require a workforce with new and different skillsets than those that exist today. This presentation will define Industry 4.0 and suggest steps educators can take to prepare students for it.
 
12:10 – 13.00
Lunch
