Following the success of our first learning technology event, BrainSpace, we are pleased to announce BrainSpace 2, Friday November 21st 2014, at the wonderful Action Stations in Portsmouth. And this time, Lego will be joining us #everythingisawesome!
BrainSpace is all about getting hands on with learning technology. No pitches, no sales people, no entry fee. It’s all about sharing practice. How you apply that to your teaching afterwards is up to you!
Who should come to BrainSpace?
Educators of all types, especially those who are perhaps cautious but keen to investigate learning technology and how they can get more from it.
Space is limited to 60 tickets per morning or afternoon session.
What’s happens at a BrainSpace event?
You’ll attend three sessions. Each one is a different type of lesson where you can experience new teaching methods through the eyes of the learner.
The difference with BrainSpace is that instead of being told how these methods work you are put in the place of the student to find out for yourself.
BrainSpace is designed to be cross curricular and cross phase. There will be enough shared practice that you will be able to adapt the tools and tech to multiple different subjects and contexts.
Have a look at BrainSpace 1, from February 2014:
The day is split into 2 identical 3 hour tours, with lunch provided (sandwiches and sausage rolls) and a mingle in the middle. You only need to sign up to the morning or afternoon session. Everyone is welcome to join for lunch.
ON THE DAY
9:00am Welcome and virtual keynote
9:15am – Morning sessions start
Workshop 1: ‘Play. Seriously! BrainPOP UK and Games Based Learning’
Hayley from BrainPOP UK will demonstrate how games can be used in the classroom to foster critical thinking, team building and collaboration.
Games based learning isn’t the preserve of “techie teachers”. We think it has the ability to transform learning. If you’d like to know more you’ll love this first workshop, exploring teaching strategies using learning games, and you’ll get a chance to play the learning games on a 30 ft high cinema screen!
Workshop 2: ‘Using mobile devices for exciting independent enquiry’
Join Mrs Addison’s Yr 6 superstars from local school, Titchfield Primary, who will show you how they use BrainPOP and other tools as a whole class, and then use their net-books individually to complete work. Bring along your own tablet or smartphone (preferably with the free BrainPOP UK app pre-loaded) to join in.
Workshop 3: LEGO Education Workshop
We delighted to announce that Lego will be partnering with BrainPOP at this event. Lego will be delivering a hands-on workshop to introduce participants to the robotics resources LEGO® Education WeDo and LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3. Ignite student engagement and energise learning through real-life problem solving. Engage your students in Computer Science, Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. Boost learning curves and help all your students reach their curriculum targets.
