Over 100 educators gathered on the 19th of November 2013 for the SELMAS annual conference which discussed the theme of futures education. Perspectives on this were shared from school, local authority, employers and the best-selling author and journalist Matthew Syed. There was a very positive buzz around the room as participants discussed mindsets, new technologies and the poverty/opportunity gap.
Over the next few days you’ll see clips and links assembling on this post and hopefully a few guest blog posts as well. Feel free to use these to share collegiately with your colleagues -please leave a comment on how you used them, what they inspired you to change in your practice or what impact they might have on the learning of the young people in your schools.
Here’s Ollie Bray on Hacking Education, Shoeless Learning and looking at things differently…..there is a link to his slides below as well
