The provisional date for this conference is Friday 13th July and will be held here at Winchester House School.
The plan for the day is that it will start with a Teachmeet event in which attendees can share what they think ICT should be like followed by an afternoon in which we could split into groups and sit round a table discussing ideas.
What I am keen to address is the ICT vs Computer Science debate that seems to have arisen since Gove’s speech. Lots of reports were saying Computer Science should replace ICT whereas I strongly they are both important and we need to find a way of combining them.
I would also like part of the day to be devoted to the idea of setting up an informal network of ICT specialists who will offer support to schools who may not have anyone in school who would regard themselves as an ICT specialist.
I am still open to any ideas, suggestions and help with trying to organise this day. I have had quite a positive response so far and think that it could be a really exciting, and inspirational day.
If you would be, in principle, interested in attending the day please add your name to this Google Doc.
