Education Innovation Conference, Manchester

| March 9, 2013 | 5 Comments 

An honour to do a presentation at Education Innovation Conference, Manchester Central, Petersfield, Manchester.

Thank you to David Ventris-Field, Event Manager, and Britta O’Boyle, Event Administrator, and Janet Murray, Education advisor for the conference, for inviting us to contribute to this new, and really fascinating event.

Challenging perceptions of technology and its uses.

Education Innovation is a new national conference and exhibition bringing together leading education experts, thought leaders and inspirational practitioners to share expert advice, training and guidance in using technology to improve teaching and learning.

Whether, as an experienced education professional looking for fresh ideas – or just starting out in a career, the aim of these two days is to develop an insight into some of the latest learning technologies and how they can be used to help students achieve their potential.

We splattered folk with a big list of (hopefully) useful resources, but, more importantly, considered how they might have an impact, on standards and confidences, in our classrooms.

Thank you all, for joining us on this whizz through the world of some joyous digital delights. We look forward to finding out what you try first.

Alongside Education Innovation, there was The Raspberry Jamboree 2013. We need to get our children “Thinking Outside the Box” but, as ever, (but with more of a focus coming alive these days) “Thinking INSIDE the Box” is utterly important. A favourite quote: “Do the things that we program with, need programming too”? “Yes” “Wow”!

    I didn’t know what to expect from your session Tim. My friend Susan said your session was going to be worth attending and how right she was. Inspiring in so many ways and a reminder if one was needed that the only constant of change is change itself. So go with the flow. Bless you.
