The inaugural EdTech Podcast Festival, supported by Cambridge Assessment, will invite up to 300 education innovators drawn from teaching, assessment, technology and the media to get involved in a festival of ideas to "improve the dialogue between 'ed' and 'tech' for better innovation and impact through storytelling". The festival will enable educators to explore new tools and strategies to support their learners, and EdTech organisations will be able to get immediate feedback on their innovations and discover new skills.

Cambridge Assessment is "powering" a series of Educator Workshops featuring experts from across the organisation as well as some of our partners.

  • EdTech in English
  • Come and get involved and find out how Cambridge Assessment English is exploring and harnessing the latest innovations to transform language teaching, learning and assessment. With Justin Walthall, Helen Allen, Mary Whiteside, Dan Frost, and Tom Booth.
  • EdTech in Maths
  • Join OCR, Cambridge Maths, and MEI to explore exciting ways to support computational thinking in the classroom. With Darren Macey and Tabitha Gould from Cambridge Maths, and Terry Dawson and Tom Button from MEI.

  • EdTech in Science
  • Join Cambridge Assessment, with colleagues from Cambridge University Press, as we discuss how digital learning materials support great teaching and add value in the classroom. We’ll also show you how we made our excellent Resource Plus for Science, as well as share exciting teaching and learning ideas applicable across all subjects. Presenters Andrew Field and Liz Duncombe of Cambridge Assessment International Education will be joined via video link by colleagues at Cambridge University Press.

  • How Cambridge does EdTech
  • Meet our maths, science and English EdTech-experts as we come together with our guest co-hosts for a mini ‘Town Hall’ discussing how EdTech is shaping education and how Cambridge is innovating in response. Andrew Nye and Evelina Galaczi from Cambridge Assessment English will be joined by all presenters from previous three sessions.

Other events at the festival will include a live podcast recording featuring a community of educational podcasters; EdTech workshops; and 'meet-up' opportunities for networking. Speakers will include the co-founder of TeacherTapp and educational journalist Laura McInerneySara Custer from Times Higher Education, Michael Forshaw from Innovate My School and Adebayo Odusola of Debate Mate.
