Catch me at BETT 2014
Posted on January 16th, 2014
It's that time of the year again... I know a lot of people are descending on Excel for the BETT show this year, and I'm keen to meet people and catch up, as well as looking for schools and others to collaborate on projects in my new role looking at impact and evidence for digital technology in schools.
I'm speaking in the following slots, but get in touch (http://www.twitter.com/oliverquinlan) if you'd like to meet up for a chat, and add your name to the BETT 2014 roll call to connect with other educators here: http://bit.ly/bett14rollcall
10:30 - 11:15 - 'The new assessment criteria & online assessment' panel session
(Schools LearnLive Theatre 2)
Discussing the changes to national curriculum assessment, and the role technology might play in how this field develops.
17:00 - 17: 20 - 'Co-ordinating & collaborating at University'
(Google Stand - E240)
Practical tips and workflows from my time as a lecturer for organising the hectic HE workload and collaborating with students using cloud based tools.
11:00 - 'Evidence in Education'
(eSchools stand - c360)
As teachers we often applaud things we do that seem to work, but in order to move from 'better than nothing' to 'better than average' we need to understand what average is, and what really makes the difference. Sharing some thoughts and some tools for using evidence in education.
12.30 - 13:15 - 'Becoming a digitally literate teacher'
(Higher Education LearnLive theatre)
My now ex-students are sharing their thoughts and findings on what digital literacy means for new teachers. A group of first year BEd undergraduates from the Digital Literacy pathway will be speaking at their first conference.
18:30 - 21:30 'Evidence in Education' - TeachMeet BETT
Hopefully picked from the random generator to present on tools available for insight & decision making into using evidence in your teaching.
