Making EdTech work for you

In this month’s podcast, Steve Edmonds and Nina Sharma explored the increasing prevalence and reliance on technology in our schools and classrooms. We wanted  to find out how those who are governing keep pace with these developments and ensure that technology is being used effectively.

Steve and Nina were joined by Al Kingsley, Chair of trustees, Hampton Academies Trust and group CEO, NetSupport and Julie Carson, Director of Education at Woodland Academy Trust who gave us their expert view on the impact of technology in schools, particularly during the lockdown as well as looking at how boards can test the robustness of new proposals.
