The Education Show 2015 returns to the NEC, Birmingham on 19 to 21 March and is once again set to address the needs of education professionals across the country, this year with an increased focus on technology.
With technology so high on the agenda in schools, the ‘Learning through Technology’ zone is brand new for 2015 and provides a dedicated space for visitors with a specific interest in ICT. The new feature will be home to a number of suppliers showcasing technology-focused products and services.
For schools looking to invest in tablets, the Education Show has teamed up with The Tablet Academy to provide the ‘Tablet Advice Hub’, a place to go for free impartial advice on the best solutions for schools, from a team of teachers with experience of embedding mobile devices in the classroom. Whether a school is looking to go down the 1:1 route, or is considering a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) scheme, the Tablet Academy is inviting visitors to trial a range of devices in an educational context.
Anita Pal, i2i Events Group comments on the new focus for 2015: “We are dedicated to providing educators with guidance in areas where they are seeking support or advice; particularly at this time of change around the new curriculum. Following the Education Show 2014, visitor feedback suggested classroom technology was high on the agenda, and we have taken that into consideration in preparing the show’s content for 2015.
“Tablets play a significant role in mobile learning, which has now become central to teaching and learning”, Anita adds. “The Tablet Academy is well placed to support educators, whether they’re just starting out with mobile learning, or have the devices ready and waiting but aren’t sure how to use them to maximum effect.”
