Before, During and After Teaching and Learning: Making the Most of BYOD Programs
iPads and tablets are a part of our day-to-day lives. So, why are they not a part of our day-to-day teaching and learning experiences? This presentation will explore different ways teachers can make the most of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) programs in their classrooms. Learn to utilise iPads beyond game-play and engage students in your teaching and learning activities through the use of smart technology. You will see examples of practice, where iPad technology and apps are used in assessment and activities before, during and after teaching and learning.

Shifting Educational Paradigms
Do you know of a school student that falls through the cracks? They are a brilliant person but don’t seem to thrive at school? What about students that go under the radar?

Chelsea Horner co-founder of in8Ed and author of ‘Generation Failure and the in8model Educator Revolution’ will shed some light on how all students can thrive at school. Come and find out what happens in our brains on a deeper level when we have an experience and how we learn. Is it possible to cater for all students in school? If there were a way would you take the risk to try it?
