Danish Edtech Showcase - London 2020

The Danish Ed-tech Showcase took place at the Royal Danish Embassy, the 27thFebruary.


Denmark has in recent years had a very ambitious strategy for utilizing the potential of digital tools to improve learning in the public school system. And as you would expect from Denmark, we have tried to improve outcomes whilst still having a focus on the whole child and on creativity and play. At the edtech showcase event we shared some of the lessons learnt and presented three specific examples of technologies used with primary and secondary school aged children.
