On the 25th June, the TDA and our Partners in Learning initiative are celebrating three years of working in partnership on a programme of activities to help teachers, trainee teachers and the wider school workforce to drive innovation and raise confidence using ICT to further teaching and learning. And what better way than a party?

We’ll show some of the key projects from our work together. Invites are going out to the great and the good, and I’ve grabbed a few extra free tickets for the “great and good blog readers” (that’s you!) for the afternoon reception.

It kicks off from 3pm on the St Paul’s Roof Pavilion at the Royal Festival Hall, so if you’re in a central London school, you can get out of home time playground duty by telling everybody you’ve got a meeting with the TDA! The windows look over St Paul’s and the City, so I hope the weather’s good.

Drinks and nibbles will be provided and you will have the opportunity to meet the teachers, pupils and education partners involved in projects that use learning platforms to develop new pedagogies in primary modern foreign languages; use ICT to facilitate collaborative approaches to teaching and learning; promote good evidence-based practice in initial teacher training; provide resources to all teachers around internet safety and security for their pupils; engage pupils and teachers in the development of student-led technical support for the computers at a school, and more still.

Please join us on Wednesday 25 June from 3:00pm to find out more about these projects.

To book a place, drop an email to Pippa Hullock and mention the Schools blog.
