An inspiring roadshow for teachers kicks off in London – with 50% savings for our readers
The Coalition Government may be severely challenged when it comes to technology for learning but thankfully the UK has no shortage of homegrown brilliance for inspiring teachers. London has been quiet since January's fabulous Learning Without Frontiers (more on that shortly) but things are looking up with Motivating Educators – Inspiring Learners (#MEIL12) on October 3.
Organised by ICT Evangelist Russell Prue, it is the first in a series of events touring the UK, with top flight educators like Tim Rylands, Richard Gerver and Simon Cooper-Hind. And the good news is that Agent4change.net readers and Naace members can register for a 50 per cent saving.
To secure one of the last remaining places at the first event at the Lancaster Hotel, Paddington, readers should visit http://www.mondale-events.co.uk website and sign up, quoting "Agent4Change" or "Naace member" to receive a discount of £60. Lunch and all refreshments are included and delegates staying until the end of the day will be entered into a prize draw.
With the inclusion of Russell (his closing talk: "Don’t send any more chalk") the event promises four of the best UK education presenters, capable of covering the whole gamut of school experience, from innovative classroom practice through to inspirational leadership and management.
The speakers will talk about what makes learning real for everyone, and how some great resources don’t have to cost the earth. They will also address opportunities to extend learning beyond the classroom in the context of a global education system, and how the impact of great ICT should be invisible.
One-to-one follow-ups with the speakers
“Entertainment is a key factor for the success of any event, and our delegates will be seeing four of the best engaging speakers on the education conference circuit,” commented Russell Prue. "Lunchtime will feature the unique concept of a speakers’ corner, providing easy access to all delegates for a personal one-to-one discussion with each speaker if they wish, making it easy to follow up on any of the points raised."
These events are finely tuned to inspire and motivate through their keynote speakers and they are accompanied by an exhibition and what Russell Prue describes as "a good-quality lunch experience". He adds, "If Russell was organising the perfect event, this is exactly what it would look like!" Hmm... just as well he is!
