Invitation to Parents for ICT Expo in Stirling and Clackmannanshire

LEARNING THROUGH TECHNOLOGY EXPO

Thursday 13th November 6:30-8:30pm
Wallace High School

There are a number of examples of good practice already developed in schools, and further evidence of emerging practice, where technology is being used effectively to improve communication and support learning. These include use of mobile technologies such as iPads, tablets and smartphones, and use of apps such as Socrativ, Aurasma, Edmodo, Office 365, Twitter and many others.

This purpose of this Expo is to allow teachers and parents an opportunity to see some of these strategies being demonstrated. Please see the workshops below. It would be great if you could come along and participate. To register your interest, please click on the link below, enter your name and tick the box (its confidential)!
