Innovation procurement – how can I buy more effective learntech in the future?
Education is currently facing a challenge like never before. To slow the spread of COVID-19, schools and universities in 188 countries have been closed, impacting almost 90% of the world’s student population.
As classes move online, it has become essential that schools have effective learning technology, in order to continue teaching young people at home.
The LEA Network ‘Procuring Resilient Education Technology’ series will bring five webinars to you this April – June, exploring the basics of how procurement can learn from this current crisis, and procure effective learntech now and in future.
In Webinar 3 of the LEA-N series, procurers will learn how innovation procurement can be used to procure learntech which meets user needs and which have all the necessary features, even those not currently available on the market. Innovation procurement expert Sara Bedin will give a short introduction to innovation procurement, before we hear from Viladecans (Spain) about how they used innovation procurement to buy learning technology.
You will learn the following:
- What is innovation procurement?
- How has innovation procurement benefited schools and other organisations in the past?
