A Computer for Every Child: Why 1:1 Matters

We will look at the successful launch of a 1:1 iPad programme with KS2 children in September 2016 at Heronsgate Primary School and the impact it has had on creativity, learning experiences and student's meta-cognition.

Re-thought Schooling
Education in 2017 lies between a rock and a hard place.  
Learners are motivated differently than past generations (the ‘hard place’) and we must teach the skills needed to succeed in a period where change happens at an unprecedented pace (‘the rock’).  

Plymouth School of Creative Arts (PSCA) is a rare example of a ‘Next Gen'' school, a place where curriculum, pedagogy and assessment are designed to support deeper understanding of content by focusing on inquiry and real-world problem-solving. 

Learn how schools like PSCA focus on deeper learning by embracing transformational strategies.

A Common Sense Approach to Online Safety
For too long our educational approach to Online Safety has been ‘don’t talk to strangers’ and ‘don’t share photos while wearing your school uniform’. The reality is that our students are talking to strangers and the miracle that is GPS means their location is embedded in most of the pictures they take. This seminar will look at why it is important that our educational message is one that is right up to date, will empower students and will ultimately allow them to make safer choices about their own online activity.
