Reflecting on Teaching and Learning

Effective practices and processes in a pandemic

We have been through a year like no other, both from a societal and indeed an educational perspective.  The things we took for granted have been utterly transformed.  The way we live, communicate, teach, learn and shop is  unrecognisable from how it was even a short time ago … and technology is at the heart of this transformation.   

Video calling has become the standard, in a way that few would have forseen.  It provides opportunities for our children to connect with the grandparents they can’t visit, for our students to access learning materials and our educators to connect with their students and others to teach and share and learn.  This is just one small example of the fundamental shift in how we do things. 

While we have achieved much through the use of technology over the past year, it hasn’t been without it’s challenges.  So we are extending an invitation to join us on the 15th of May to reflect on the practices and processes that you have embedded in your teaching and learning over the past year.  Join other educators for the 2021 #ictedu to share ideas and effective strategies for use in your classroom. A dynamic programme features clever ideas from presenters who will share where they got their ideas. A major strand of the conference hears presenters discuss big (or little) workarounds they used to entice their students to actively engage in classroom activities.
