Following the success of our dedicated ICT event back in November 2013, EdExec LIVE: ICT Matters is back!
ICT Matters focuses on new developments in classroom technology and putting them into practice. It’s a half-day conference intended as a live version of ICT Matters, the ICT section of Education Executive magazine, and will offer an invaluable opportunity for decision-makers, technology experts and policy leaders to be in the same room at the same time to discuss the future of learning in a digital age.
With a background in the business of running schools, we are the only independent education technology event to focus on the resourcing and procurement of technology. Our seminars will provide practical advice on what schools should be considering to deliver best value for money on a digital front to their pupils. There
is no other event like ours out there.
This is an ideal event for school business managers, headteachers, ICT managers, governors, senior leaders and teachers with a vested interest in technology at their schools.
What’s in a day?
The day begins at 12pm with a seminar session of your choice. This is followed by lunch and networking, as well as time with our ICT-specific supplier specialists, followed by a further three seminar and quick fix sessions in the afternoon, before networking drinks at the end of the day.
Seminars (60mins) will be a collaboration and interaction between presenters and audience. Delivered by leaders in each respective field on trends, potentials and pitfalls in their area, the sessions aim to be extremely targeted, current and inspirational. Seminars take place in breakout areas within the main event space so they remain part of the exhibition and networking areas.
Quick fixes (30 mins) are a condensed version of a seminar topic, delivered in just 30 minutes. They help people who are spoilt for choice and find they are interested in two seminars running at the same time, allowing you to cram more learning into your day.
A small exhibition with hand-picked service providers
This will be a buzzy, interactive space that will encircle tables, our small-scale exhibition, networking sessions and coffee breakout areas. This aspect of the event aims to offer delegates an opportunity to chat to and learn from our supplier partners. As with all things EdExec, we don’t agree that bigger is always better and strategic partnerships are key for us. We only invite a small number of key education specialists showcasing at our event – those with a clear specialism in education and a great track record as education service providers.
Seminar topics and speakers
EdExec LIVE: ICT Matters promises to be a
day of valuable talks and seminars, presented by leading experts in their field. These sessions will offer a unique insight into areas of particular relevance to school leaders and ICT managers. In the run-up to the event, delegates will be asked to choose their favourite topics for the day from three seminar streams and assigned a bespoke schedule for the day.
Being bang up-to-date and responsive to our audience and what’s relevant to the sector has always been one of our strengths. You can’t lead from the front if you’ve planned six months ahead, so exact detail on the content of the seminar sessions is still being planned. However, we can confirm the broad topics that will be covered, and, as with previous years, they aim to mirror the key areas of a business manager’s role, to make it as relevant as it can be to your professional life.
Workshops will fall into the following categories:
- Harnessing the power of your VLE – Expert advice on how to sort the fad from the fundamental and encourage staff and student involvement in virtual learning.
