Now in its third year, EICE provides visitors with the chance to take part in inspiring workshops and receive specialist advice on how to boost achievement in their schools, colleges and universities. Confirmed speakers include Tim Rylands and David Mitchell, as well as an exhibition packed with innovative technologies. And as our most interactive event yet, EICE will give visitors the opportunity to watch demonstrations and get hands-on with the latest products and ideas.
Seminar highlights, featuring experts on technology in teaching:
âœ¥ Dr Bob Gomersall: Keep up! Trust the tools, trust the technology, trust the learners. This session will look at how the tools to deliver
the life-changing moments in education are already here and why we need to trust them to benefit learners and the wider UK alike.
âœ¥ Mark Mackie: App smashing – combining digital tools for inspirational teaching and learning. This presentation will explore how using various cross-curricular applications in different combinations can enhance teaching and learning outcomes, using a mixture of demonstrations and interactivity.

âœ¥ Mike Walker – Simple and straightforward MDM. Come and find out how one local primary school made the whole process of mobile device management (MDM) simple, and straightforward. Whether you’ve got devices already and have mastered
your procedure for their management, are looking to purchase tablets soon or have bought kit and left it in a cupboard.

New features for 2015 include:

will offer a mix of interactive exhibition stands and hands-on workshops, including subject-specific sessions from Elsium for all teachers, from geography to modern languages.
âœ¥ The SEN Hub– the ability for technology and innovation to help children with special educational needs (SEN) will be illustrated in the SEN hub, with the assistance of British Dyslexia and other leading organisations.
âœ¥ An e-safety clinic, offering advice on how schools, colleges and universities deal with the safety of their students. Keeping children safe online is one of the biggest issues facing parents – and teachers – since the rise of mobile technology. EICE’s e-safety hub will give education professionals the tools they need to tackle the problem and stay ahead of the game, with a mix of expert advice, case studies and innovative solutions.
âœ¥ The interactive classroom – created by Space Oasis. This is a live classroom that will be used throughout EICE, with students working on projects alongside Elsium, illustrating how a creative and inspiring environment can really raise the bar when it comes to classroom productivity.
