So many tools, so much to do, so how will we do it?
Guest speaker: Andy Hutt, educational ICT consultant
With so many tools to help with planning and resourcing, so many ways to help make lessons involving and effective, and so many technologies to foster creativity and love of learning, why is it that there can still be a reluctance to engage with these technologies? Andy will explore some tools for teaching and learning, and some of the ways in which we can promote and support their use in our schools.
