‘Inspiring Leadership’ was an exciting & dynamic programme of plenary sessions, expert masterclasses, workshops & seminars & a vibrant exhibition spanning the primary, secondary & special education landscape.

We shared a session called “Top Tips for a Teacher’s Tech Toolkit”, looking at some essential ways that computing, and technology, can add value to learning opportunities.

In this speedily changing education world, with a potentially daunting set of “new” elements to teach, we picked apart some of the possibilities to unravel the computing conundrums, but also started off what we regarded as key aspects of any teacher’s tech toolkit, for bringing lessons alive across the curriculum.

We also sought the input, of everyone there, for their ideas, for “that essential resource”.

After sharing some introductory, and accessible, ways to engage, and motivate students of all ages, and abilities, we reinforced how these elements are not only essential for quality learning experiences to take place, but how they can also have a massive impact on standards, achievement… and enjoyment!

Thank you to Steve Elliott, of Blackberry Productions, for organising our involvement.
