The UK's education system remains in a state of contant change as it responds to new policy initiatives, the increasing demands of parents and students and innovations emerging in learning technology, pedagogy and neuroscience.
Channel 4 has a particular focus on 14-19 year olds and how to reach and engage them using the latest media technologies. Over the course of the last few years we have developed a series of award winning projects harnessing social media, social networking services, games and television to give young people a chance to express themselves in public, share their stories as they move into adulthood and make sense of the world around them.
