Education in the Media: Wednesday 14 November 2018

Today’s Education in the Media blog looks at our Home Learning Environment summit, hosted by the Secretary of State, which will explore opportunities to help parents with early learning at home.

Home Learning Summit

Today, Wednesday 13 November, the Education Secretary will host a Home Learning Environment summit in London which will bring together business, the media and tech companies – such as National Literacy Trust, LEGO and Disney – to look at home we can support parents with learning from home.

The Times Red Box column ran an op-ed from the Secretary of State about the Home Learning Environment summit.

In the op-ed, the Secretary of State sets out the importance of children learning communication and reading skills at an early age and how businesses, the media and tech companies all have a role to play in supporting this.
