Three new speakers confirmed for EdTech event


Three new speakers have been confirmed for BusinessCloud’s forthcoming event on EdTech.

Education Secretary Damian Hinds has called on the tech industry to launch an ‘education revolution’ for schools, colleges and universities.

The minister says while some schools are using technology to bring education to life by enabling students to take virtual trips through the Amazon for example, they remain very much in the minority.

BusinessCloud’s latest InSights conference on September 6 will shine a light on the EdTech sector and hear from some of the disrupters that are shaking up an industry that has long been ripe for disruption.

Steam School founder Jade Parkinson-Hill, Supplywell co-founder Dan Price and Angel Solutions CEO and founder Andy Kent have confirmed for the breakfast event, which will take place at UKFast’s Manchester campus.

Steam School hosts a weekly live broadcast with innovators from the world of science, tech and digital media with the aim of raising the aspirations of students around technology. At the end of each broadcast, students are invited to complete a weekly mini challenge in a real world context.

Start-up Supplywell brings supply teachers and schools together. They say their technology enables schools to save money when recruiting so they can invest that back into staff wellbeing.

Like Steam School and Supplywell, award-winning Angel Solutions is based in Liverpool. The software development company has a suite of products which services the schools market with data intelligence.

Parkinson-Hill, Price and Kent join Alex Alexandrescu, co-founder of Dicey Tech, as the speakers confirmed so far with more to follow.
