Draft Programme – #PeLC11

6 03 2011

I have just been reading through the draft programme for the Plymouth e-Learning Conference 2011 – #pelc11 – (next month!). There is, as usual, a very exciting line up of presentations. We are going with a 3-day format this year and are hoping that many more teachers will be able to attend.

 I will be discussing issues around eSafety in schools, in my capacity as a Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre Ambassador. I will be joined by Simon Finch (@simfin), eLearning Officer at the Northern Grid for Learning. The session will be chaired by conference organiser Steve Wheeler. What are your thoughts on eSafety? Please let me know if you think there is something in particular we should be discussing during the session, or something you think we should be aware of.


Plymouth e-Learning Conference 2011 – Planning is underway…

9 11 2010

I attended the first Plymouth e-Learning Conference 2011 organising committee meeting last week. It took me 3 hours to drive down to Plymouth from Christchurch to join the meeting. It’s an exciting time. This conference in particular is one that will be of particular interest to teachers across the whole of the South-West. Like no other event, PeLC blends the rigour of  academic research with a very accessible forum for practitioners across the primary, secondary, further and higher education sectors. Definitely worth a look in – especially as the first day is free! See what the conference chair, Steve Wheeler (@timbuckteeth), has to say…
