5 Compelling reasons to attend Collabor8 4 Change

Collabor8 4 Change is one of the fringe events at the forthcoming BETT show, and comprises up to around 50 round table discussions, each lasting 20 minutes. You can attend up to 5 of these over the three hours of this stupendous event. In a daily series of posts this week I hope to highlight some of the table discussions that are planned.

Here are the first five on my list:

  • Andrea Carr: ICT in the primary curriculum - overcoming barriers. Please scroll down to see new title.
  • Alessio Bernardelli: Does Mind Mapping improve learners' understanding? What are the best tools to engage learners in effective Mind Mapping?
  • Annabel Rook: Improving literacy in an social learning environment.
  • Antony Moore: The Future of Learning Platforms
  • Arie Wels: Teaching outside the classroom walls 

You won’t be able to attend unless you have a ticket, which you can obtain by clicking on the link at the start of this article and registering. Don’t worry, it’s free!

We have room for a few more table discussions, so if you have been thinking of hosting one, now is the time to step up to the plate and be counted – and my apologies if that is a mixed metaphor! If you’re not sure of whether to or not, you can always contact me with your idea and I will let you know if it sounds right for the event. I can also send you some guidelines. It’s not difficult, and the focus is on discussion and sharing, ie being a guide on the side rather than the sage on the stage.

Check the ICT in Education website tomorrow for the next five – same time!
