I was honoured to be asked to give a presentation at the Enhancing Learning and Teaching with ICT conference for Liverpool City Council, Children Services alongside Sir Ken Robinson and Professor Stephen Heppell.
This is the second time I have had the dubious pleasure of following Sir Ken on to a stage to present. I say dubious because the man is a remarkable act to follow. Great wit matched with great wisdom.
Ken and I wondered if there was a bit of a theme being cultivated here today, both of us using a stick to navigate with. We wondered if Stephen would turn up on a drip! (Thankfully not, even after a nasty ski accident just before BETT.)
Robinson and Rylands even formed a duo to rival Status Quo.
What a superb event! Thank you to Paul Bradshaw, (Senior School Improvement Officer, ICT and Global Learning.) and his colleagues for an excellent and inspiring day.
After my presentation I was interviewed by some Students from Broughton Hall High who are reporting live from the ‘Enhancing Learning and Teaching with ICT’ conference for RadioWaves. The interview should go up HERE soon. They made tremendous and enquiring reporters. They had the opportunity to interview Ken Robinson, myself and Stephen Heppell. Their broadcasts and blogs will be available at RadioWaves by the end of the week.
Please listen and leave your own comments..
In a lunchtime session after my presentation I talked with a few folk about the incredible range of genres that can be inspired by these visual literacy ideas.
