Are you teaching the skills for today and tomorrow that our students need?

The Department of Education in conjunction with Microsoft and Lenovo are offering the following sessions free for DoE teachers.

Educators in schools find that students are more motivated by relevant, contemporary learning where technology is as immersive as it is in their everyday lives where they play games online, use mobile phones, share music and photos and express themselves using rich social media.

Explore how educational technologies can be applied to promote student driven learning, develop creative and critical thinkers and promote strong 21st century collaboration.

Talk through the issues and explore new technologies in this practical hands-on workshop, guided by experienced educationalist and Microsoft Education Master Trainer Pip Cleaves.

Bring your Windows 8 Teacher Laptop/Tablet device and discover a wealth of practical apps for learning and ways to leverage technology to ensure the best possible positive impact on student learning in your school.

This is a comprehensive hands on full day workshop which will provide an overview of key innovations and innovative thinking that we can apply in our schools and classrooms.
