Partnership aims to overcome educational inequality

The EduTECH festival has announced its support for The Smith Family, in an effort to champion educational equality.

The Smith Family has long been recognised for its work with children and young people impacted by poverty, supporting their education and empowering them to create their own futures. By providing essential resources, access to support programs, opportunities and personal support, The Smith Family has made a tangible difference in the lives of thousands of students across Australia.

"Our work over many years has shown that stepping in with the right support at the right time increases the likelihood of a young person staying at school, completing Year 12 and going on to further study or work," said Doug Taylor, CEO art The Smith Family.

Through this collaboration, EduTECH and The Smith Family are working hand in hand to develop initiatives focused on teaching, technology integration and community engagement, all geared towards overcoming educational inequality.

"EduTECH is proud to support The Smith Family. Together, we are dedicated to driving positive change in the education sector and empowering students from disadvantaged backgrounds," said Arron Penman, Project Director at EduTECH.

EduTECH Australia will be held on 13–14 August 2024 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
