engage in their future 2012 Annual National Conference Presentation Synopsis Thursday 5th July 2012 Charlie Taylor: The Future Landscape for BESD Schools Charlie Taylor will discuss the challenges and opportunities for BES schools in the light of his review into Alternative Provision and Government policy changes. Claire Dorer: Support and Aspiration - Where do Children with SEBD Fit? In May 2012, the Government finally published the long awaited “Next Steps” document, following on from the SEND Green Paper in March 2011. The document promises a brave new world of Education, Health and Care Plans and services working together but it also leaves the diagnosis of and response to young people with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties in an uncertain position. Claire will consider what the forthcoming Children and Families Bill might mean for you. John d’Abbro: The Hottest Classroom & Stepping Out of the Comfort Zone Moving out of our comfort zone can bring about discomfort and stress but also opportunities for personal and professional growth. This talk will highlight the personal experience of moving out of the comfort and security of an everyday life to running Jamie Oliver's Dreamschool, the challenges and the pain it produced, the untold story, and the lasting legacy. Friday 6th July 2012 Nick Lamb: Engaging and Motivating Young People Using ICT We all know just how much the arrival of new technology has changed the way we learn and work. Our young have developed almost native skills in using a vast range of technology, including Smart Phones, PCs, Tablets, Games and Media Players. Their ability to pick-up and use devices and to fathom out how to get the most from software is often extraordinary. The aim of the Nick’s talk is to build an understanding of how to get the best out of new technology, how to let students make the most of their natural skills, to give teachers the confidence to use ICT and to guide teachers to effective, accessible and affordable software (often free) and equipment. This talk represents the first stage of his programme; effective in its own right, it can also be the catalyst for a whole school development programme. Larry Bartel: TeachMeet Originally conceived in 2005 in Scotland, a ‘TeachMeet’ is an organised (but informal) meeting (in the style of an unconference) for teachers to share good practice, practical innovations and personal insights in teaching with technology. These events are often organised to coincide with other educational events like the Scottish Learning Festival and the British Educational Technology and Training Show (BETT). Participants volunteer to demonstrate good practice they've delivered over the past year, or discuss a product that enhances classroom practice. Participants agree to either give a six to ten minute micro-presentation or a three to five minute nano-presentation. Presenters are randomly selected and not all volunteers will get to present if time does not allow. The use of PowerPoint is usually banned at TeachMeet events. Delegates will be emailed before the start of the Conference to see if they wish to present. Tam Carrigan: Dangerous Success Tam will be talking about his life experiences, travel and current projects in this insightful and inspirational talk.
