The 20th What the research says event

Friday 5th June - 13:30 - 16:00
London Knowledge Lab

Excellence in education and in educational technology is critical for the UK to compete globally, and for the success of individual education providers. However there is "Little continuing improvement in the quality of instruction - because there is no consistent basis for building the evidence of what works and what does not."[1] What can we do about this and how can and when should research evidence impact on educational technology design and use?
