The Edtech Podcast is delighted to invite you to our first festival, in collaboration with our community partners, including GLF, United Learning, Voice 21, Research Schools Network and HereEast.
Join 200-300 like-minded people to improve the dialogue between “ed” and “tech” for better innovation and impact, through storytelling.
Warning! This is not a conference. This is a festival of ideas, so expect to come and get involved. Educators, explore new tools and strategies to support your school improvement plan, and learner outcomes. Edtech orgs., get immediate feedback on your innovations and support your team with new skills.
The Edtech Podcast Festival is set in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at Plexal Innovation Centre at Here East. Check out some of what we have in store below.
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.
The Edtech Festival 2018 will be held at Plexal, within the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Hackney, London. There is a bus connecting the Plexal building to Stratford bus, train and underground stations; the venue building is also a five-minute walk from Hackney Wick train station. Alternatively, Plexal is a pleasant 20 minute walk from Stratford station.
