Academies ShowThank you to Christian Moffat, Programme Manager, for coordinating our invitiation.

A big thank you to Tim Handley, Assessment, Maths + ICT lead, Woodlands Primary Academy, Bradwell, Great Yarmouth, for enhancing our session with huge help from Reaya, Mollie and George.

As well as joining us to complete a mystery “animule challenge”, the Woodlands crew present independently. Their session entitled Technology Beyond Computing: How we use Technology to Engage, Inspire, Motivate and Improve Learning

The three stars shared their thoughts here:

Woodlands Primary AcademyWe are Reaya, Mollie and George  and we are excited to be presenting at the Academies Show in London on today alongside our teacher, Mr Handley.

We are going to be presenting a session called “Technology Beyond Computing- how we use tech to inspire, motivate and extend learning”.   We will be sharing lots and lots of ideas of how teachers can use technology in the classroom to help engage children in their learning and to make school even more fun.    The session has been written by us, talking about tools and services we like, and our aim is to give everyone something they can immediately take back to their school. We have also been asked to talk about our visions for the future.

We presented a similar presentation at BETT 15 to a packed arena, and we hope everyone at the academies show finds it interesting and useful too.

We are also excited to be taking part in a top secret challenge set by Tim and Sarah which will see us creating something using some of our favourite tools ‘live’ at the show.    Why not come and see the challenge being set in Tim and Sarah’s key note at 11:45, and the results in their second presentation at 3PM.   We are then following straight on with our presentation at 3:45pm.

We are going to be live blogging the day at  and we also keep a class website and blog at we’d love you to visit either of these and leave us a comment!
