Event description

Description

You are cordially invited to the Colleges eActivities Group (CeAG) Winter Fayre event – a free festive day of presentations and workshops which highlight the potential of digital technology to enhance learning and teaching in education.

We’ve brought together speakers from around the country who’ll share practical advice and experience as to how technology has made a difference to them and can do for you. The workshops are very practical, designed to have takeaways that you can apply in your own contexts.

Although this is a CeAG event, in the best traditions of the festive season, it’s open to all who have an interest in the digital side of education. We welcome attendees from schools, colleges and universities, from public and private sectors, really anyone who wants to learn, share and join in a bit of winter fun at the Zoo.

Some of what we have on offer:


Presentations

  • StoryTEL-ing: Playful Uses of Technology Enhanced Learning
  • Engaging Students with Microsoft Teams
  • Public Sector Accessibility Guidelines - What You Need to Know (and Do!)

Workshops

  • Giving Your Videos a Bit of an Adobe Spark
  • Building Conversations Using Chatbots
  • Google Forms for On the Go Assessment
  • Creating e-Learning in a Continually Evolving Landscape
  • Developing Mobile Apps - An App for the Fayre
  • Made on a Mobile (#MadeOnAMobile) – Film-making Crash Course


You can access the whole programme here. As part of the registration process, you need to select the workshop sessions you want to attend. We'll try our best to accommodate all choices and explore repeating sessions if some are over-subscribed.

It's going to be a tinsel-tastic sort of a day, and with a budget of exactly £0, we want to express our deep gratitude to everyone who is volunteering their time to make this day happen. RZSS have generously offered to host our event, which includes free access to the Zoo. SQA are paying for tea/coffee, but you'll have to fend for yourselves for lunch (there are plenty of dining options on site to choose from).

We'll be in the Education Centre which sports a 180-seat lecture theatre (who knew?) and several breakout spaces for workshops. There's not much in the way of kit, so if you choose a workshop that requires the use of a laptop, phone, etc. you'll need to bring your own (we'll give you access to power and the Internet).

Okay - we're really excited that this is happening and do hope that you'll be able to join us on the day! Looking forward to meet you all at our festive ed-tech Fayre!
