Event summary – #WeTweetEd #3 – How can technology help embed change in education?

Over fifty brave souls faced the Wintery elements to come to the tenth floor of the Pearson HQ for our third of these networking events. They were rewarded with fantastic views of London by night, warm mulled wine with mince pies, and a lively debate about the future of education technology. It was the usual informal format, with an emphasis on meeting/drinking and speakers allowed just 140 seconds each, before the conversation was opened up to those in the room and beyond. Visible tweets were put up on screens throughout the evening encouraging those near and far to interact using the #WeTweetEd hashtag or list.
