Edtech UK Hubs

Edtech UK Hubs create a community of practice for those working with education technologies and supporting digital skills. 

They are collaborative communities of educators, businesses and those interested in policy development in key areas. The Hubs work across areas as centres of professional expertise, focus and change. 

Hubs are communities of practice with collaboration and practical activities at the heart of their work. Hubs support client purchasing decisions and smarter procurement. 

The Edtech UK Hubs National Network supports local areas and regions to act on the urgent issues of digital poverty, articulating the digital promise for schools and colleges and creating professional support. 

The national network is supported by Edtech UK, NGFL and other regional partners.

You can now catch up with the conversation on the @RGSWorcesterRTC YouTube Channel.


The first Edtech UK Hubs launch - July 2021

The panel sessions discussed next steps for Edtech and digital skills across schools and colleges.

  • What is the reality of the access challenge for young people? Digital Poverty is corrosive and limits life chances.

  • How can we ensure that young people have the right digital skills, devices, infrastructure and support in this recovery phase?

  • Did educators overcome the 'fear factor' when it came to education technology during remote teaching and learning? 

  • Does it point to new forms of professional development - more bitesize and more responsive? How can the national teacher and leadership professional qualificationsTeaching School Hubs and Early Career Framework reflect these changes?

  • What are the 'covid-keepers' for schools and colleges?  What new things, tried for the first time, will become crucial parts of practice and institutions going forward?
