About The Event

 Education has remained broadly the same for hundreds of years. Technology is changing that. Quickly. So what exactly is education technology or edtech as it is commonly termed?


EdTech, or education technology encompasses everything from the simple use of computers to teach maths and reading to children in elementary schools by Stanford University professors in the Sixties, to the submission of homework online, entire online degree platforms, informal mobile learning applications, gamification or virtual reality techniques.
What started as an experiment in education delivery is now being transformed by a new breed of technology entrepreneurs.
Just as technology, and particularly the digital era, has disrupted and improved most major segments of our economy, education and training is also undergoing a tech revolution.
As we witnessed the digitization of the media industry via the profusion of new content, audience fragmentation, data centricity and the convergence between content and platform players, so will they impact the education in market, leading to a raft of opportunities for innovators in EdTech.

However, EdTech is not just about reformatting books and training manuals, or even about the individual technologies themselves.
It is about applying digital technology to deliver a new form of learning architecture.

The integration of multi-media, gamification, mobile casual and informal learning apps and peer-to-peer learning platforms are all making content increasingly immersive; designed to not only attract students but also keep them engaged – all the way to the end.
The importance of EdTech does not just lie with the power it has to bring down costs and engage learners in new and innovative ways.
It is also about the way in which it can equalize standards and enable access for all, resulting in the democratization of education.


Online platforms, mobile applications and new learning formats have massively improved access to education, as well as enhancing the learning process itself, while online and Cloud technologies bring with them exciting standardisation possibilities for content.

The knowledge economy that we invest in for our children via the schools system and right through to higher education and on-going, professional development and training is a fundamental support to the rest of our economic lives.

Without it we lose our ability to develop skilled workers, build competitive advantages as nations and generate growth.
To keep developing the knowledge economy we need to ensure, as with other sectors, that we maintain a level of innovation to improve the efficacy and efficiency of our learning systems.

This is the importance of EdTech.
