Design lab: EdTech and data-driven technology in schools

How can affected communities have a powerful voice in shaping the adoption of data-driven technology in schools?

We brought together 17 participants for two online workshop sessions in January 2024 to explore:

  • the growing use of data-driven educational technologies (EdTech) in UK schools;
  • challenges around who has, and who does not, have a say in EdTech adoption;
  • possible approaches to give affected communities a more powerful voice in EdTech decision making.

Participants included teachers and school counselors, teaching union representatives, and education researchers. Sessions were designed with support from Defend Digital Me.

The full slide deck capturing the write up of the sessions is available here.
