North of England Education Conference, Nottingham

| January 15, 2014 | 12 Comments 

Great to contribute a session, entitled “Out Of This World”, to the North of England Education Conference, in Nottingham

Nottingham City Council is proud to be hosting the North of England Education Conference, with the theme Education: Innovation, Creativity, Employability.

This three day event has a focus on innovation in the classroom, inspiring innovation and creativity in young people and of course, appropriately for us, Nottingham City is a GameCity, an event we took part in way back in 2006, as well.

We shared some accessible tools, and ideas, for raising the levels of creativity, writing, speaking and listening among children of all ages; the powerful effect of using games, Web2 tools, software, handheld devices and more to model a way of teaching that focuses on quality learning, rather than the latest gadget.

We had a practical investigation of how virtual worlds, with their stunning landscapes, peaceful characters and realistic challenges, can be used across subject areas, abilities and age ranges to deliver remarkable effects.
