What’s on our Educator Workshop programme?

A series of educator workshops will help educators companies refine their practice and boost their confidence and connections in any given area. The sessions will be around 30 minutes long, and will then be followed by 30 minutes of 1:1 networking, covering everything from understanding data, maker-space technologies, oracy, and what does AI mean for me and my students?

Who is it for?

The Edtech Podcast Festival aims to bring together everyone involved in education innovation. Educators from early years to HE and everything in between, start ups, bluechips, publishers, investors, Government and media. We’ll work hard to mix you up and make your experience as hands on as possible. The ethos of the event is to go home with a head full of ideas, interesting conversations and follow up. After a gruelling week marking lessons or ‘hustling’ as an entrepreneur, we want you to feel loved! Education innovation cannot be achieved by one side alone. In year one, we aim to bring 200 people together. 70% UK and 30% ROW.
