Professional EdTech Development

If there is a group I need to talk to about this, this must be it.

I’ve joined up with DEEP Learning to deliver edtech conferences. We are always looking for collaborators. Schools looking to host events, school liaisons wanting to be part of organising something meaningful and/or talented individuals who want to share best practice as presenters. It is hard work but I can tell you after our recent Bangkok event at NIST, it really is rewarding.

Please check out the new look of the website and consider joining us for an event or sending some deserving staff. I hope to hear some feedback from this. I really believe this is the sort of cooperative effort that can bring people together and help us all up our games.

I am sharing some information (copied and pasted from a LinkedIn post) about the upcoming event at Nexus IS, Malaysia (May 8-10).

Come and check us out! We’re better together.

Our students are worth it. Every ounce of effort. All year long.

There is a chance to learn from some of the best educational technology practitioners in SE Asia happening May 8-10 at Nexus International School, Malaysia. Google celebrities and high-end presenters Suan Yeo and Jay Atwood will be presenting sessions in the unique Discovery/DEEP Dive two-punch combination format (more here). So will around 20 other in-class, full-time teachers with content ranging from video creation for higher learning to creative commons/citation to robotics and technology in environmental studies!

So are you the kind of teacher who wants to innovate right to the very last day? Grab an Early Bird ticket here and join us or grab a handful of colleagues and take advantage of group rates.

Takeaway Projects are put in place to ensure optimal learning. We help you develop something to take back to your school, ready to implement.

20-minute Discovery Sessions in the morning allow you to learn something new and enable you to make informed choices about which afternoon sessions best suit your unique environment.

50-minute DEEP Dives after lunch allow you to gain further insight and take your learning to a deeper level.

The whole conference from the Google Apps for education pre-conference with sessions also managed by student leaders to the Takeaway Projects and format has been devised to give participants maximum control over their learning. Check out the website for more information and testimonials. Hope to see you there. There is still so much time left to raise the bar for the students in your care.

I hope to hear from you soon!
