Technology has the potential to transform aspects of our education system. Nesta is working in partnership with the Department for Education (DfE) to support schools and colleges to make more effective use of technology. We want to ensure schools have access to high-quality products and help build the evidence base for what works.

The £4.6m partnership will support more effective use of technology in education. We will be working on a programme to stimulate industry innovation, support the improvement of products, and build the evidence base to ensure that technology meets the needs of teachers, lecturers, pupils and students. The first stage of the partnership is the EdTech Innovation Fund.
