Tackling the Digital Divide

Narrowing the Gap, Tackling the Digital Divide

On Wednesday 4th November 2020 the Education Policy Institute and Pearson are hosting a webinar on the future of blended learning and the digital divide: ‘Narrowing the gap, tackling the digital divide: How can technology address the disadvantage gap during Covid and beyond?’

Join EPI and Pearson at this virtual panel discussion chaired by Bethan Staton (Financial Times). Speakers are Professor Becky Francis (Education Endowment Foundation); Sir Jon Coles (United Learning); Priya Lakhani (CENTURY Tech); Sharon Hague (Pearson); David Laws (EPI); and Christian Wakeford MP (Education Select Committee).

With the new school year in full swing this panel of experts will be discussing the impact of the digital divide on learning losses over the last eight months.

The discussion will cover what barriers schools have faced adopting an online learning approach which allows all pupils to fulfil their potential and whether blended learning has a future in classrooms beyond the pandemic.

This session will also reflect on how the edtech strategy should be updated in light of the challenges and opportunities that have arisen due to Covid – and what role technology can play as part of an evidenced intervention to narrow the attainment gap.
