£10m strategy aims to overcome technology barriers

Boosting the speed of university wifi and improving the effectiveness of anti-cheating software are among the objectives of a £10-million government “EdTech Strategy”.

The strategy, unveiled by education secretary Damian Hinds on 3 April, covers schools, further education and higher education institutions. It aims to encourage cooperation between education institutions and leading technology companies to cut workloads, support professional development and improve student outcomes.

“There are very real barriers to the use of technology in schools, colleges and universities but we are committed to government playing its part in helping to break them down and to support the sector to capitalise on the opportunities,” the report said.
