Jodie Collins, Pearson Teacher of the Year and Games-based Learning Expert

 

Textbook of the Future

Bev Humphreys, LibWithAttitude, Librarian

Adrian Smith, Pearson School Improvement Programme

 

Exam of the Future

How will learning be measured and assessed in the future, and how will online metrics be recorded and reported?

Speaker to be confirmed.

 

Event Structure:

The event innovates around the typical panel debate - with an expanded break-out format!

Start: Each panelist will give a brief overview of the market, and identify a few of the key challenges, as they see it.

Middle: The event then breaks into three groups, each focusing on one of the main strands. (On entrance, attendees will be asked to express a strand they wish to join).

End: Reconvening, the panel and audience will be asked to exploring the thoughts and issues raised in the group discussions.

 

Networking: The event wraps up in a networking session.

 

Event Details: 4th APRIL Doors open 6.30, starts at 7pm. TechHub, Old St

 

Looking forward to seeing you then!

    Came in a touch late - felt it took speakers/host a little while to get going, felt a little flat and sound / speaker quality a touch variable - sorry!
