Watch out for one of the UK's best regional events for learning with technology – Digitally Confident
Education conferences proved their value for collaboration and support when the Coalition Government came in and policy for learning with technology went out of the window. And a regular regional favourite is coming up on Tyneside next week – the Digitally Confident Conference (Sage, Gateshead, October 16).
The event has brought together a healthy mix of speakers with expertise in classroom practice, innovation and policy, from expert modern languages teacher and digital strategist José Picardo through to former Labour education minister Lord Jim Knight. But the stars of the show are likely to be the digital leader pupils from Normanby Primary School who will be live-blogging, reporting and presenting.
