How do schools buy digital technology? There is a strong sense in the UK Ed Tech community that selling to schools is one of their greatest challenges. Despite this, schools are spending several hundred million pounds a year on the digital technology they use. How are these decisions being made?
I’ve been pulling together lots of the thinking I’ve been doing as part of projects at Nesta over the past year, and I’m trying to publish as much as I can before I move on in my new direction (effectively in mid December). This post over on the Nesta blog draws on a national survey of teachers we ran last year to try to better understand what influences how schools buy and implement digital technology.
