Teachers celebrate learning using ICT at Riviera International Conference Centre

Teachers celebrate learning using ICT at Riviera International Conference Centre

Headteachers, teachers and governors from across the South West have learnt more about the application of ICT in schools at a major conference at Torquay's Riviera International Conference Centre.

Around 320 delegates, who included local authority staff, looked at learning now and in the future as well as ideas for sharing good practice at the conference.

The conference was organised by five local authorities from the South West and provided teachers from Devon, Torbay and wider afield with the opportunity to hear speakers of national and international renown.

Workshops on all aspects of ICT were run by expert teachers and in addition there was Schools in Action.

Uta Wagemakers, IMS Adviser for Cornwall County Council, explained: "An exciting addition this year is Schools in Action. Groups of students and staff worked live in the Centre producing films, podcasts, blogs, wikis and much more to show how new technologies can enhance learning.

"Delegates were photographed, interviewed and recorded by the students throughout the day."

More than 70 leading education specialists in ICT hardware, software and ICT services were represented at an exhibition and schools entered a prize draw with prizes totalling more than £10,000.

The conference, recognised as the leading event in the South West for promoting the application of ICT in education, was sponsored by leading equipment suppliers, RM, Smarter Interactive, Netmedia, Espresso, Ergo and University.
