The past 12 months have seen mass adoption of technology in schools on a scale nobody could have imagined. As we start to reflect on the academic year 2020/21 and celebrate an incredible journey, Bett welcomes Damian Hinds MP, a group of school leaders and Dell Technologies to the Bett webinar series.

Reflecting on the findings of the APPG on EdTech Report “Lessons from Lockdown” we will evaluate which technologies have enhanced learning outcomes, supported pedagogy, boosted wellbeing and improved parental engagement. What do we keep and, moving forward what plans do we need to put in place to develop digital capabilities and harness the power of technology for the long-term benefit of our school communities?
