Lancashire 21st Century Learning Conference, Chorley

| March 20, 2012 | 14 Comments 

At Woodlands Conference Centre, Chorley, for the 21st Century Learning Conference – Being Inspired

The virtual world around us is constantly changing and all aspects of life cannot escape being affected by this. Developments in technology and the need for new and creative ways of thinking to adapt and embrace change requires us to explore different approaches and attitudes to our everyday lives. Education and learning is not immune from this. Or it shouldn’t be.

So how can we keep up with the pace of change? How can we offer young people an education that is preparing them for an ever-changing world? How do we adapt our teaching to engage young learners and give them an education that nurtures their skills and thinking abilities to fulfil their potential for living in the 21st Century and beyond?

This conference was about exploring new attitudes, pushing boundaries and maybe about becoming a little disruptive in new ways of thinking.

Thank you Nigel Kirkham for inviting us today.

Alongside the Conference there was the annual ICT exhibition and delegates were able to visit the exhibitor stands during extended break times and over the lunch period.

    Does anyone remember the website where you were able to turn a picture into a planet? I’ve had a look through world2me but can’t locate it.

    Really wanted to come yesterday, but had to be at Uni to have my PGCE signed off. Sounds like it was an inspiring and thought provoking day.

    Hope you’ll be in the North West again in the near future.
