In three weeks' time, on Friday 20th July, we're running a joint Microsoft & Samsung event in Brisbane, for school senior leaders. The day is designed specifically for School Principals, IT Directors and their Curriculum Directors.

 

21st century learning: How the best schools leverage technology to improve learning

The event is a high impact, exciting, hands on exploration of learning techniques and technologies to help staff and students develop the skills they need for tomorrow’s work force.   Facilitated by highly accomplished educators who have practical experience with powerful innovative learning technologies, you will explore: 

  • How to measure and improve 21st century skills in your school
  • How to leverage your investments to ensure better outcomes
  • Ways of supporting staff to embrace new learning opportunities
  • Ideas for creating safe, online collaborative learning opportunities 
 

The event isn't for IT implementation teams in schools – instead, it is specifically designed to address the leadership and curriculum challenges to developing 21st century skills for students. And it will include plenty of hands-on exercises using the latest Samsung Windows slates.

BTW I'm a big fan of the Samsung Series 7 Slate PCs, as I've been using one for a few months now with Windows 8, and it's really changing my way of working and also my home use of devices.

It's on Friday 20th July, at Brisbane Boys College in Toowong, with a choice of either morning (9AM-12PM) or afternoon (1-4PM) sessions.
