Digital strategy: technology at the centre of teaching and learning
José Picardo, assistant principal at Surbiton High School
José will explore how technology has been adopted at Surbiton High School, with pedagogy as the guide. The school is an environment where teachers and students use digital technology habitually to support teaching and learning. This has been achieved by investing in professional development, connectivity infrastructure and by providing every member of staff and student with a tablet device.

What could be more important than e-safety?
Perry Perrott, head of education, BCS Learning & Development
Would you let your son or daughter cross the road without applying the Green Cross Code? So why do we allow this behaviour in the virtual world, one which is potentially just as destructive? We want young people to see the internet as a positive and inclusive place that respects people’s differences, but how can we achieve this in education and what challenges do we face?
11:30 – 12:00
Join the debate and discuss topical issues including the curriculum, finance, CPD and more!
