Share Tablets for Schools Conference 2013

Event Details

Tablets for Schools is  a not-for-profit initiative (soon to be charity), aiming to transform learning for every child in th UK. Our independent research programme is the largest of its kind, looking at the impact of tablets on teaching and learning. It has found significant benefits, but also challenges, that 21 schools have faced when implementing tablets. we aim to share best practices from these schools, with other schools who are considering adopting tablets. To do this, we are hosting our first conference on Monday 9th December.

Rt Hon David Blunkett MP (former Secretary of State for Education) will be delivering a keynote on 'The Future of Learning' to over 400 head teachers, senior leaders and decision makers. Hosted by Andrew Percy MP (Conservative), this is the largest conference of its kind, led by schools, for schools. As a participation-based conference, it will focus on delegate engagement in practical workshops that will demonstrate how schools have implemented tablets effectively, in order to improve teaching and learning.

Delegates will be provided with a concierge service, whereby they will be matched with exhibitors that are relevant to their interests and needs. The conference will start within a main plenary theatre. Following this, a range of workshops will take place and delegates can attend 4 of these on the day.
