BSF Leadership Programme Conference, Harrogate Day 1

| March 11, 2010 | 2 Comments 

Today, we were running a workshop looking at different technologies that can have an impact on standards in the classroom, as part of the Phase three of the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) Leadership Programme and their two-day residential conference, at the Majestic Hotel, Harrogate
The conference consists of structured debates, workshops and keynote speeches.

Delegates came from Bedford, Bolton, Hartlepool, Kirklees, Lancashire, Leeds, North Tyneside, Nottinghamshire, Oldham, Peterborough, Sefton, Stockport, Suffolk, Tameside, and Wakefield.

Although I have seen Tim present many times over the last couple of years, once again, at the BSF Leadership programme, for the National College, in Harrogate today, he reminded me why I wanted to be a teacher all those years ago.

The delegates from Schools and Local Authorities in the BSF programme were engaged, inspired, challenged and intrigued by Tim’s magical mystery tour through his tales, and real examples, of how to make learning fun with the use of ICT.

His passion, enthusiasm, understanding of learning and child centred-ness would move the most difficult “technoplegic” groups or individuals you could possibly come across.

I can’t wait to have the privilege to be in one of his sessions again.

    From one baldy to another, thanks for a truly inspiring session. It was great to see children’s imagination flourish through simple, challenging and fun techniques. I will definitely be using some of these in my own lessons but also evangelising the staff to the fantastic opportunities available.
