Four days of speakers, workshops and demonstrations from teachers and digital education delivery specialists
BETT, 29th January 2013 – Stone Group, the UK-based ICT services provider specifically for the public sector, is hosting a full four-day roster of theatre-based continuing professional development opportunities for delegates at the show from its c70 stand.
Curated by Disruptive Nostalgist and Independent Educational Consultant, Tony Parkin, Stone’s theatre programme spans diverse subjects and every level of ICT in education, from primary to further studies.
Visitors will get insight from the latest educational practitioners and engage in new ways of thinking about the role of technology in education delivery. The programme includes input from some of the education world’s leading educational technology names, including:
- Bob Harrison, Chair, Teaching Schools Technology Advisory Board
- Hannah Jones, Founder and Director, Connecting Learning
- Glynn Barritt, SSAT
In addition to thought leaders and established faces, Stone are also putting on sessions hosted by ‘the new breed’, a new wave of inspirational teachers offering new perspectives on learning technology.
On days two and four of the show, Stone is working with hackathoncentral to present a programme of previously created apps and games to inspire teachers and pupils into finding out more about development and application design.
Simon Harbridge, CEO at Stone Group, commented, “The theatre is running for all four days of BETT and the programme is very diverse. We know our customers like to learn from their peers and the people that inspire them, so we thought that dedicating one third of our stand to a theatre area where people could learn, engage and interact with the speakers is part of our ongoing commitment to the thousands of schools we partner with every year. We think it’s going to be a great addition to the traditional stand format.”
