Technology in Education welcomes inputs from the public relations industry, providing any relevant material submitted is professionally written and truthful. We are not in the business of being purveyors of puffs.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE
Technology in Education is devoted three main educational subject areas:
- DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY including engineering, food technology, product design, and textiles.
- ICT ( Information Communication Technology) or as it is known outside education – IT.
- SCIENCE – Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
TARGET AUDIENCE – Our target readership is secondary and tertiary education and training.
Educationalists use the acronym, STEM. This stands for Science Technology and Mathematics and this sums up the educational areas we are interested in.
We endeavour to inform our readers what new products or services are out there. We do not pass judgement and leave our readers to make their own minds. For a product or service to be evaluated it needs to be used by a teacher or lecturer for at least three months. And even then it is only one viewpoint. What suits one teacher or lecturer may not suit another.
We delighted to receive press releases. In Word please and not embedded in a document. Any images we need in high resolution.
Remember to give us background information on the company. Currently, the country is highly conscious of buying from British companies, all things being equal.
We don’t wish to teach a grandmother to suck eggs, but may we remind you that people will be interested in not just what the BENEFITS of your client’s product or service is from an educational point of view but tellingly from what fellow teachers and lecturers say about it and why they are using it.
Our readers to take time out to read features. Please keep them to circa 850 words + images – a complete A4 page. If these features are written in a personal style we are happy to give by-lines. Please send an update photo of the author/authoress plus a 50 word potted biography, reflecting their educational background.
You must remember our readers are very busy people. They give public performances as much as five to six times a day to very discerning audiences – students – during their working week and then they have their marking, administration, and lesson planning for the next day. So keep it short and sweet.

We do not review products. We are publishers and not educationalists. However,we happy to run articles which quote educationalists on how they using the product or service.
