On Thursday 9th July our education team braved the tube strikes and took to the Emmanuel Centre in London for the annual Education Reform Summit 2015. Our reason for attending, other than our enthusiasm for discussing technology in the classroom? We were the proud lead sponsors of the event.
We had a fantastic day down at the Summit listening to keynotes from big names like Nick Gibb: MP and Minister of State for Schools, Tristram Hunt: MP and Shadow Secretary of State for Education, Richard Culatta: Director of the Office of Education Technology, and Munira Mirza: Deputy Mayor of London for Education and Culture discussing what education reform means to them. Here’s a roundup of what we got up to during the Summit…
As the lead sponsors for the event we were out in full orange force with our collateral and videos on display for all to see. We also had our Senior Professional Development Trainer Paul Ford stepping into the position of executive producer and working with a group of students from Langley Grammar School on a challenge-based learning activity.
Working with the students at Langley Grammar School
Throughout the event, Paul worked with the Langley Grammar School students to produce a video response to the question ‘what does education reform mean?’ After producing a storyboard to map out exactly what information they wanted to find out, the students set off to interview delegates at the Summit, including Shadow Education Secretary Tristram Hunt.
A portable greenscreen studio was set up for the students to use for filming their interviews, which they later edited and presented at the end of the event to demonstrate to the delegates how staff and students viewed the day.
The finished product
A massive thanks goes out to the pupils at Langley Grammar School for their hard work in making the video. Here it is…
