Following the success of JCS 2018, this second conference on digital literacy provides a focus on the importance of digital capabilities for schools and sixth form colleges – not just the skills required by staff and students but extending to culture and policies. The programme will again be a mix of keynote speakers, lightning talks and workshops but introducing round-table discussions to increase the opportunities to share ideas and help formulate strategic approaches to take-away.

A further change for 2019 is extending the conference to Saturday lunchtime to enable more sessions, more discussion and more time for networking.

Who should attend JCS 2019?

The conference is suitable for anyone in state and independent schools responsible for information and digital literacy, teaching and learning, study skills, and policy relating to these themes. It is also relevant for Academy Trusts and other organisations responsible for school groups, awarding bodies, FE Colleges with sixth form provision, and university school out-reach teams.

Call for Lightning Talks

JCS welcomes submissions from representatives from any sector or organisation with knowledge, advice, guidance on any aspect of the theme, Digital Literacy in Schools: building capabilities. Interested in submitting a talk? Learn more here…
