Technology Zone

The Technology Zone is one of the most innovative areas within the Schools & Academies Show.  

EdTech is possibly the most exciting part of education, with companies breaking ground with AI, VR and AR. Within this zone, you will find real-life examples of technology being used in schools whilst hearing advice on how to embed technology across your curriculum, making individual ICT lessons a thing of the past.

At our previous event in April 2019, the Rt Hon. Damian Hinds MP chose to announce the Department for Education’s EdTech Strategy and as such, we are delighted to provide senior leaders from schools with the chance to meet a wide range of the UK’s leading education technology suppliers.
