Overview

Join us for a day of networking with other teachers, educators and artists working in schools in the South East Wales region – with a focus on using technology to facilitate and inspire creative learning through the arts and across the curriculum.

The day will include:

  • Training delivered by Mr Parkinson
  • Presentations from regional schools who have effectively used ICT for creative projects
  • A creative technology marketplace to gain insight on what’s on offer across the region

This event is predominantly aimed at those who work in the primary classroom, but will also be useful to secondary teachers or those working with pupils who have additional needs.

This event is delivered in partnership with the Lead Creative Schools regional team.

Please note: Attendees need to bring their own iPad or tablet to this event.

Facilitator

Primary teacher and training facilitator Lee Parkinson, a.k.a Mr P, is well-known for his humourous and informative YouTube videos and blog posts. He has trained teachers throughout the UK on how to use technology to raise standards across the curriculum, with the ethos of ‘work smarter not harder’.

We’re delighted to have Lee join us for a day to inspire teachers, educators and artists who work in schools – don’t miss out on this great opportunity to access his training.
