This year's weekend course on the 19th - 20th June will be a virtual event on the subject of digital education, and brings in speakers from diverse backgrounds and specialisms so that delegates are exposed to a range of  ideas to take back to their schools. 

Utilising an online platform there will be two 2 virtual rooms: the ‘Speakers room’ and the ‘exhibition room’. The Speakers room is where the main programme will take place, while in the exhibition room will be exhibitors who are ready and willing to talk to you (there’s a chat function). Exhibitors will also get a half hour slot which will include 15 mins for a demonstration, video or talk, and 15 mins for a Q&A session. Each exhibitor will have a secret word you need to get in order to fill out your exhibition bingo form. Get all the secret words right and you’ll be entered into a draw for a prize.

If you book a day delegate ticket you will only receive the recordings for that day, but you will get both the Speaker Room and Exhibition room so you can re-watch at your leisure. There will be a virtual delegates bag with goodies for everyone as well. 

The 'Introductions' sessions are short sessions to introduce the latest in technology developments that are relevant to school libraries.

When booking please take time to ensure your email address is correct as this is how we will send you the link to access the event.
