At OMS we always embrace opportunities to use technology to enhance the learning experience and we were happy to be invited to share our experiences at the East of England Broadband Network Conference – E2BN – on 23rd and 24th June 2015.
Mr Young, Mrs Tiplady and representatives from Year 6 shared the innovative work the school is engaged in using the latest ideas for “21st century interventions”.
Mrs Tate presented four fantastic workshops offering ideas for implementing the new computing curriculum and explaining how schools can use blogging as a learning tool. You can find her workshop presentations by clicking the links.
Representatives from Year 5 were invited to take part in a ‘FlashMeeting’ workshop which demonstrated the powerful possibilities for using multi-part video meetings to inspire learning. Including a ‘live’ discussion with the trailblazing ‘Enchantress of Numbers’ Ada Lovelace, the children researched and shared their fantastic questions about her incredible life and groundbreaking work.
