Advice and training is provided on:
- using devices, apps and platforms

- using technology to maintain effective communication between teachers, pupils and parents
- digital safety and safeguarding
- supporting the needs of pupils with SEND

You can view a list of upcoming events on the EdTech Demonstrator website.
Demonstrators are schools and colleges with significant experience and expertise in the effective use of education technology. All demonstrators have applied to be part of the programme and have undergone a rigorous selection process through the Department for Education (DfE).
Who the programme is for
Any publicly funded school or college in England can apply for support from an EdTech Demonstrator. Independent schools and training providers are not eligible for the scheme.
The programme offers support to schools and colleges who are setting up a new online learning platform.
It can also help those that would like support to develop their approach to remote learning to improve learner outcomes, engagement and wellbeing.
