Why attend?

EdTech has transformed the way teachers deliver and students engage with lessons, however, due to the pandemic, some schools quickly adopted a wide range of systems and devices, varying in quality, to meet the home learning demand.  

This brand-new workshop, led by JISC-accredited Digital Leader Matt Jarvis, provides you with the opportunity to review what EdTech you have adopted, explore what free tools you can integrate to enhance classroom pedagogy and focus on how to ensure there is a consistency across your school or college. Perfect for staff in the Senior Leadership Team who want to review the pedagogical systems used in the classroom, this in-venue workshop will: 

  • Review the technology already integrated in your school/college to ensure it’s fit for purpose, right for your centre and enhances teaching and learning in all lessons 
  • Explore a range of strategies to support with effective planning for digital development 
  • Provide you the up-to-date trends, technologies and emerging issues in digital education to ensure you have the facts before adopting new EdTech 
  • Focus on providing you with planning tools and a future-proof action plan to implement a positive change   

To maximise your experience on this workshop, we ask that all attendees bring along their own personal laptop or tablet (not school restricted device).
