Our CAS Autumn Event, November 10 – 19, brings together an exciting programme, including four keynote speakers; Anne-Marie Imafidon, Mark Martin, Rupert Ward and Maggie Philbin, as well as host two panel events focussing on Cyber Security.
“These are extraordinary times for everyone working in education and technology, and there are so many aspects to explore. So, we’re delighted to have brought together so many experts for an inspiring programme, and we’re grateful to them all,” said Beverly Clarke, National Community Manager for CAS.
The autumn event begins on Tuesday 10 November with keynote speaker Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon MBE, co-founder of Stemettes, who launches our programme.
On Wednesday 11 November, we bring together a panel of speakers for our first Cyber focus event. Aimed at primary schools, we’ll be looking at how to keep younger children safe online. You’ll hear from expert speakers; DC Dawn Wood, Ian Rockey, Henry Platten, Megan Rose, Dr Jon Chippindall, Rosie Cole, Sway Grantham, who will give a 360-degree view of how to navigate the digital landscape safely.
On Thursday 12 November, we discuss opportunities in the tech sector in a session led by Mark Martin MBE, aka the Urban Teacher. There are huge opportunities in the tech industry but are we adequately preparing young people to make the most of them?
Week two begins with a Tuesday afternoon session on November 17, led by keynote speaker Prof Rupert Ward looking at Learning Fitness. Could we learn lessons from Joe Wicks who helped people stay physically fit during lockdown, on how to get learning fit? Rupert will explain how to develop effective learning habits, particularly following the impact of lockdown.
Wednesday 18 November sees our second Cyber panel event, this time aimed at secondary teachers and with Sophia McCall, Steven Furnell, DC Dawn Wood, Celine Williams, Emily Nicholass, Ben Garside, Simon Roberts leading the discussion.
Our programme rounds off on Thursday 19 November with Maggie Philbin OBE who will talk about engaging young people, especially girls, and the success of her organisation TeenTech in bringing the world of technology to life for young people aged eight to 19. She’ll share case studies, how they have identified what works well and what she feels is needed for 21st century learning.
