A research safari in The Staffroom, South Hall at BETT20.

About this Event

Recent research has shown that teachers are resilient and proactive in the face of curriculum change (Hidson, 2018). We offer an exciting fast-track to the technologies most likely to offer impactful self-directed professional learning. We will start with an overview of key CPD strands available at the BETT show, highlighting the possibilities afforded by generic types of technology, before plotting a thematic route through a selection of products and services that provide CPD opportunities including micro-learning through video tutorials, developing communities of practice through social media and the use of edtech both inside and outside of the classroom. Other findings relate to web-enabled video technology to build professional capital through reflective practice, coaching and collaboration and e-portfolios for initial teacher education that help teachers to identify and address developmental needs, whilst helping course providers to support and monitor their progress. This seminar will be followed immediately by a forty five minute guided BETT20 safari to discuss the opportunities with the relevant edtech companies.
