Thanks to Will Higgins of AT Computers Marketing and Events team, and Jon Coleman, of eSchools, for organising such a superb event.

David and TimWe shared a keynote with dear friend David Mitchell (@DeputyMitchell), and, between us, shared links, ideas, and tools, for encouraging creativity within our students, whatever age, whatever ability.

We took folk on a magical tour of inspirational tools to inspire the uninspired learner.

Real examples of transformational impact, ICT tools that have proven impact to excite and lift the eyebrows (as well as the writing hand) of even the most reluctant writer! Using freely available tools that can be used within 2 minutes in your classroom, take your pupils onto another level of creativity and enthusiasm for writing.

Whether you are from a primary school or a secondary school, EdTechLIVE events provide ICT professionals with a fantastic opportunity to experience the latest and best in Education Technology.

The conference is your chance to hear from some of the UK’s most respected and inspirational keynote speakers from the world of ICT. Our workshops are themed to help delegates to provide great content on a range of EdTech topics, and an unmissable CPD opportunity.

We believe in learning from each other and there are opportunities to meet and network with colleagues from other schools. Delegates will also get the opportunity to hear what ICT initiatives are having a whole school impact in schools in their local area.

The exhibition zone gives delegates the chance to see the latest products and services that are available to schools today.

    This has been a fantastic day. If you weren’t able to atend, you really missed out. Thank you to Tim, Sarah, David and all the other guest speakers who imparted knowledge and enthusiasm. If the ideas that were shared were tangible you would have needed a suitcase to carry them home. So many great ideas to take back to the classroom and to share with colleagues. Well done to eschools and AT computers for hosting a great event. I hope this is the first of many.
