The Brighton #EdTechSummit 2019

Thanks everyone for taking part in yesterday’s Brighton #Edtechsummit helping us continue the debate on how we connect and design #Edtech to the real needs of educators. I got great some new phrases like “Wiggle in your straight jacket” from @CrisTurple 

What did you get from the day either at the event or online?

Does it feel like there is real momentum in the Edtech movement?


If you were at the event please fill in the EdTechSummit Feedback form so we can understand what went well and what we could improve upon next year.

Huge Thanks You to our sponsors without whom it would not have been possible.

You can access the conference presentations here and we will add the slides as we receive them.

Here is our Developing Digital update with a list of the SixPack examples so far.

Can you use or add to this list of resources to simplify EdTech, to reduce costs and enable transfer of impact between schools?

How can we make this more useful?

Some quotes so far

Gary Henderson said “The need for sharing and collaborating across schools was the key message I took away from the Brighton ISC EdTech Summit last week.   We need to share what works, the challenges, the successes, the approaches and the journeys taken.  It is only through this sharing we can be more consistent and effective in our use of EdTech”.

“It’s absolutely vital […] to get to the heart of the matter. We have created a day which evades the tyranny of the case study. The journey is never linear or perfect but we need an #edtech strategy in England.” #edtechsummit @ty_goddard
