On Tuesday, Microsoft Education are heading to Liverpool to attend Innovation in Education: Enhanced learning and engagement through technology, an event designed to get exclusive insights from key policy makers on the following topics:
- Enhance – How can technology be used to enhance the learning environment and improve curriculums?
- Engage – What evidence is there that technology affects student engagement, and how can this evidence be used to create real change?
- Innovate – Why is innovative use of technology, rather than just innovations in technology, so important when it comes to equipping children with the skills for a digital world?
The event being run by the University of Salford, and further information on the agenda, speakers and more can be found on the main event page.
