17 November 2022 | 14:00 - 14:20 | English | Are we Maximising our Investments in Educational Technology?
Leveraging data collected from the EdTech App Report 2022, this presentation will outline a data-rich approach to support the detailed analysis needed to maximise schools' investment in technology. Investment in educational technologies is at an all-time high within schools, with an array of new digital tools and apps being introduced. More and more schools are including one-to-one device plans within their digital strategies and it is increasingly difficult to keep track of these investments in hardware and software to ensure productive usage toward enhancing student outcomes. Maximising these investments is a key question for school leadership and one that this session will explore in detail.
