ICT for Education – host of regional computing conferences for UK schools – has announced that the second of this year’s series of six regional education technology conferences will take place on Friday 1 May in Sheffield. The event will take place in the city’s iconic Bramall Lane Stadium.

For eight consecutive years, the ICT for education conferences have sought to help teachers and education leaders maximise the potential of edtech amid ever-changing curriculum demands and constantly-evolving classroom tech, also giving them valuable insights as we prepare for an inherently digital world.

The event, which is free to attend, will welcome over 100 delegates, allowing them to discover impactful edtech solutions, while providing a space where they can network with peers and hear from industry-leading speakers and practitioners.

This year’s ICT for Education event in Sheffield will be led by Miles Berry, principal lecturer and subject leader for computing at the University of Roehampton. Miles is also a contributor to a range of computing-related projects – including the National Curriculum Computing Programmes of study.
