San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Welcome to this unique adventure in which delegates will be able to learn from and talk to some of the UKs foremost experts in the digital education field.
What is digital education?: Where students and staff are using and creating content that can be shared via computers, tablets and phones. This sharing can happen beyond the school to really motivate students.
Why is it unique?: Unlike many conferences where you sit back and simply listen to opinions and make notes you will have the opportunity to try things out and discuss the impact of the use of new technology in education.
Why is it needed?: There has been massive investment in new technology and yet in many schools and colleges methods of teaching and learning have not changed very much. Computing is now a statutory part of the curriculum and students need to be given the opportunity to learn about how new technology works.
