Education Technology - A National Seminar Thursday 14 November 2013


This one day seminar is designed to challenge thinking and inspire action!


Shireland plays host to nationally renowned educational technology leaders, with the seminar addressing the latest 'Flipped Classroom' and 'Enquiry Based Learning' ideas and cuts through the hype and jargon showing how these can be used to improve learning for all students.


The day will provide an opportunity to see and experience educational technology in action and hear how it has been embedded across the school - with particular focus on Flipped Learning and innovative use to drive up standards in Mathematics.


Delegates will engage with thought provoking concepts and leave with practical take-away ideas which can be easily implemented in any school.
