    Hosted by: IOE, UCL's Faculty of Education and Society
    Every Edtech enterprise needs to get a sense of how their product or service meets the needs of their users - and if the product or service is facing school-age learners, then making contact with schools and teachers is a high priority. Around the world, “EdTech Testbeds” are being established to enable this to happen, with a range of additional positive impacts along the way. However, funding and sustaining EdTech Testbeds is challenging - as is finding the right incentives for the schools and learning scientists that participate in them. This workshop, led by the Global Edtech Testbed Network (https://globaledtech.org/) aims to share learnings from other countries’ Testbed efforts, and initiate a discussion on which approaches might suit the English school context.
