Vital ETC - Education Technology Conference

Wednesday 27th March 2019 | Dante & Nunthorpe Suite, York


Vital York Limited brings you their annual Education Technology Conference on Wednesday 27 March 2019.

We’ll focus on how you can achieve the very best in your teaching and learning through the use of exciting and innovative education technology.


For us, it’s not enough to have the newest Chromebook, the slickest iPad or the coolest mobile, it’s about working with you to show you new and inventive ways to get the best results from using technology in the classroom. Together with our partners, we will show you how education technology can be implemented and how together, we can transform your school’s technology journey.

What is the programme for the day?

For those who have attended the conference in previous years, this year’s event promises something new!


We are delighted to announce that we have the fantastic ICT Evangelist, Mark Anderson as our Keynote Speaker and not only that! Mark will be our MC for the day, taking you through a fast-paced programme of information bursts, presentations, demos and quick edtech wins.


Other confirmed speakers include: Joe Dale, Fiona Price and Mark Lloyd.


The complete programme will be released after Christmas.
