Who we are and what this site aims to do

Edtechguide.info has been developed by The Education Foundation and UKIE with the support of the London Enterprise Panel and the Greater London Authority

In 2015, The Education Foundation and UKIE conducted a major piece of research to map the digital, computing and technology needs of schools, colleges and industry across London. A legacy of this work was the production of this new beta, test-bed guide for senior education leaders on education technology, computing and digital learning.

We are looking to create a network of senior leaders who wish to share their lessons and learning in developing a strategic approach to technology across their institutions.

So feel free to share your stories, resources and case studies with us …

This site is written by educators for educators and we want to thank the Greater London Authority for their input. Particular thanks go to leading education technology experts Mark Chambers, CEO, NAACE; Mark Dorling, National CPD Co-ordinator, Computing at School (CAS); Shahneila Saeed, Programme Director, Digital Schoolhouse, Ukie and Rachel Jones, King Edward VI School for their invaluable input.
