The Tormead seminar informed and entertained the audience with the story of our three year journey towards ‘Introducing Tablets into a 21st Century School’. Held in the ‘Schools Learn Live’ theatre within the main BETT exhibition hall, Excel Centre, Docklands, Mr Coles and Mrs Salmond Smith outlined the challenges and opportunities the school encountered during the planning and implementation phases of launching iPads into mainstream classroom use.
The audience comprising of both education professionals and technology companies were eager to listen and learn. Questions at the end followed thick and fast. Our Digital Leaders were on hand to help with these, rising to the challenge answering queries and showing the visitors how and why we are using tablets. It was a very proud moment, indeed, when the girls took over: many audience members praised the Digital Leaders, commenting on their impressive depth of knowledge and skills: true Tormead Champions!
The record number of freebies collected was by a Year 5 Digital Leader: 7 pens, several badges and of course, a stress ball. All agreed it was a fantastic trip and we look forward to visiting BETT 2016 next year.
Look out on Twitter for more @Tormead_DL photographs of the visit.
Prior to the Tormead talk, the Digital Leaders toured the show, visiting stands and meeting exhibitors. Their mission was to find technologies of interest, question the sales representative and establish the benefits for their learning. They quickly rose to the challenge, tweeting about their discoveries and being retweeted by the companies at BETT. Tormead was obviously leaving a good impression!
