Presented by Georgie Barrat

The history of learning

The evolution of technology within education has changed dramatically in the last century, but in fact it dates back several hundred years. As innovations evolve to transform teaching of the next generation, we look at how far we have come and the key milestones that have transformed the learning experience for students to date.

Informing education with data

Schools collect masses of data every day, yet this information is often left untouched. Community Brands provides schools and local authorities with technology to help them make the most of their data. This gives educators access to key insights, that lead to informed decisions for better educational outcomes.

AI in education

Artificial intelligence in education is now innovating the ways we teach and learn. Global learning platform, Quizlet have developed AI software called Q Chat that provides virtual assistance to teachers and students, ensuring educational information can be gained quickly and effectively.

EdTechs, educators and policymakers

AI is revolutionising the way education connects and collaborates, enhancing and having a positive impact on both teachers and learners. Bett, the world’s biggest EdTech event, is committed to bringing together EdTechs, educators and policymakers. Their Global Innovation partner Intel shares the benefits these collaborations can have.
