ICT Professional Development News

Here are a couple of items that have come to my attention, and which I hope will be of interest. One is a conference, which takes place on 7th June, the other is access to web resources, on a special offer.

Conference

It's good to talk. Photo by Tobias Vemmenby http://www.flickr.com/photos/toobydoo/The conference is being put on by the Edugeek community. This is a great community of people who understand the technical side of what we do. I’ve always found them to be very helpful and generous with sharing their knowledge. The conference takes place on 7th June, in Preston, England, and is free to attend.

The subjects under discussion are not as geeky as you might think. They include a talk on Bring Your Own Technology, an introduction to the Raspberry Pi, and a talk about the EU Cookie Law. Full details are on the conference page. Incidentally, if you’re interested in having an exhibitor’s stand at the conference, there were still two spaces as of a couple of days ago. For details contact the organisers.

Web resources

If you teach any subject (or work with people who do), it is worth checking out Vital’s web portals offer. With a subscription you can access up to three subject portals out of  Computer Science, English and Literacy, E-safety, Geography, History, Maths and Numeracy, Modern Foreign Languages, Music, Primary ICT, Science and Special Educational Needs. If you do so as an individual, it will cost you £10 for access until the end of March 2013. But if your school or organisation subscribes, then 100 people can have access for £150, which works out to £1.50 each (I must have been listening at some point in my maths lessons at school, because I didn’t even use a calculator!)
