I have been a little remiss in not keeping up to date in sharing some of the excellent CPD which is taking place at the moment. By far one of the best value for money opportunities is taking place next week at the Emirates Stadium- the notice is short admittedly but maybe you can make a Monday morning pitch to your Head!
*Stop press- if you are attending the Achievement Show please tweet with #achieve2009
This Tuesday 16th June 2009 sees the second annual Achievement Show held by The Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT). This is an exceptional event which showcases the work of schools involved in the Leading Edge Programme run by The SSAT. For me at £99 this is the most cost effective CPD opportunity in the school year. Take a look at the schedule online and if your school is quiet on Tuesday next week (Year 11, 12 and 13 may all be away and exam season is easing off) see if you can get to London. Booking this late can still be done although they are nearly sold out. You can do so by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
Come and see me presenting on our work at Twynham School
If you are coming along to the Achievement Show on Tuesday do please come and see me presenting if you are interested. The focus will be on raising achievement through a learning platform. I am on at 11.45 am at the New Technologies Village which it would appear is the first area next to the event entrance.
How can you find out what good ICT practice exists in schools throughout the world? Perhaps the most effective resource available on the internet is the ICT Register. Created by the SSAT in association with BECTA the ICT register showcases best practice in ICT in education. You can apply to join the register if you have particular strengths you wish to share. If you are looking for support in ICT you can search for a school with particular strengths and request further input.
The main ICT Register themes this year are:
