Building the EdTech Community
We are developing communities of practice that provide peer-to-peer support for the effective use of technology for enhancing teaching and learning in schools and colleges across England.
EDTECH HUBS THEMES
Where Are the Hubs?

The first EdTech hubs were launched in the North West, West Midlands, East of England and within London in 2022 with more being added throughout 2023.
Geography does not dictate membership of the EdTech hubs programme; involvement within and across Hubs will develop fluidly and responsively as momentum builds.
In 2023, the EdTech Hubs have featured lead schools and colleges from Hampshire and Bucks; new Study Tour events have specific foci for both curriculum support and wider organisational efficiency in the effective use of technology.
