JCS 2019

  • This event has passed.

29th November 2019 @ 10:30 am - 30th November 2019 @ 1:15 pm

$45 – $190

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.

Accommodation is bookable separately.
