Loughborough High School in Leicestershire, part of Loughborough Endowed Schools, is hosting a special conference called ‘A Tablet for Every Pupil’. The school is leading the way in new technology and staff will be sharing ideas on best practice and digital learning with their counterparts who are considering the deployment of tablets to their own pupils and teaching staff. The event takes place on Tuesday 10 February, when a speaker from Apple will deliver the keynote session.
Gwen Byrom, headmistress at the school, said: “We’ve had a great response to the event from schools across the country, and the delegate list is growing daily. The itinerary is strong and it promises to be an excellent opportunity to examine the many benefits of new technology in closer detail.”
Loughborough High School was one of the first independent schools in the country to go 1:1 with iPad, and this conference is an opportunity for school leaders, governors and decision-makers to hear more about the deployment and the decision-making behind it.
Following the keynote session, staff from the school will discuss issues surrounding their IT vision, including finance, governance, technical insights, teaching and learning. There will also be a chance to find out about the rollout of iPads to younger pupils at Fairfield Preparatory School and to take part in workshops in a choice of subjects.
