Digifest 2024

Imagining the future of education and research: 12-13 March 2024, Birmingham ICC or online

Imagine the future

Not the inevitable, but what you want it to be. Digifest creates a space where you can not only learn about how innovation can help you now, but what it will allow you to do in the future.

This is your opportunity to leave your ‘here and now’ and unleash the power of your imagination. That’s the first step. What comes next – that’s the adventure.

Digifest 2024 looked at:

  • How advancements in AI, data and education technology can enable collaboration, personalisation and positive change
  • The skills, capabilities and competencies needed for the educators, students and researchers of tomorrow
  • How extended reality (XR) technologies are helping drive new experiences for students that inspire, engage and develop skills
  • Bold ideas for personalised and adaptive learning to empower students as change agents for the future
