Education Show 2018: Creativity, wellbeing and innovation

Sponsored: Ahead of The Education Show 2018, the organisers behind the event reveal what to expect

Posted by Julian Owen | December 23, 2017 | Events

Creativity, wellbeing and literacy take centre stage at The Education Show 2018, with education experts joined by award-winning children’s author, Michael Rosen and Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcy Bussell. 

The UK’s leading education resources event brings the classroom to life over three days from 15 to 17 March 2018 at the Birmingham NEC. The 2018 show celebrates the mix of practicality, fun and creativity that teachers bring to their roles to inspire their pupils, while supporting the knowledge and commitment of schools. 

The event features over 350 of the most creative education solutions and resources from well-loved brands and exciting new companies, allowing visitors to get hands on with what inspires children to learn and thrive. Educators, policy-makers and leading speakers join them in a diverse programme of professional development during the event, helping teachers navigate policy changes and create a fun interactive learning environment for their pupils. 

Anita Pal, Event Director of the Education Show, said, “The Education Show and its community demonstrates the many different aspects of a rich and creative education each year and it’s always a pleasure to work with our teachers to deliver the show. As always, literacy and numeracy are at the heart of the event but this year the role that wellbeing, innovation and the arts have on education are being highlighted in an exciting way.” 

The Education Show 2018 has a number of new feature areas, including an arts and crafts workshop, where educators can get hands on with the latest creative resources. The Health and Wellbeing Zone has been developed to help teachers discover latest solutions and thinking to support pupil and teacher welfare. The Teaching with Creativity Workshop will feature content providing cross-curricular inspiration for bringing creativity to the classroom and the Education Start-ups Area will showcase ‘best-in-class’ start-ups to enable teachers to explore emerging learning technologies. Complementing that is last year’s popular Learning through Technology Zone, which will allow visitors to find out more about tech-based products.  

Now in its 28th year, the show has become the recognised event for educators to experience the latest and most innovative and practical education resources and gain practical inspiration from experts and their fellow teachers.
