Webinar: The Modern Classroom – balancing technology, space and pedagogy
26 April 2016 GMT
Tuesday 26th April, 4.30pm to 5.15pm (GMT+1)
Senior International Education Consultant, Gill Leahy, will deliver a webinar that builds on her School Leader’s Summit speech at Bett 2016.
Informed by recent research and Promethean’s own classroom based experience, this session will consider the 3 key aspects of the modern classroom (the learning space, the technology and the pedagogy), and how these can be adapted to support the 4 catalysts of engagement, feedback, personalisation and collaboration which are critical to motivate students to learn. The session will consider some of the barriers overcome by successful school leaders in reimagining the classroom. Toolkits for designing, implementing and evaluating the modern classroom will be recommended.
This webinar describes in detail the concepts outlined in The Modern Classroom – Strategic Insights for School Leaders ebook.
