Maximising Current Edtech

Making the best of your current edtech

Every day this May, we’re bringing you another great little reason to head to #exabytes17. While the 7th of July might seem quite a way off, we think now’s the best time to start thinking about arranging cover to be released on the day itself.

In a lot of cases, edtech can be a major investment, which sadly doesn’t always pay off - unused hardware and non-useful software can put schools off investing in new technology. At #exabytes17, we’ll be exploring a range of ways in which you can get the best out of your current edtech. While we’re still working to put together our final programme based on what our guests actually want to see, we think there’s a few different areas that we’ll be covering on the day itself:

micro:bit Maximisation: With the micro:bit having been distributed a year ago, a lot of schools are looking to find new projects for the devices - look no further than #exabytes17!

New Raspberry Pi projects: As one of the most popular edtech projects, there’s a whole lot out there for Raspberry Pi - expect an in-depth look at teaching Python via Minecraft on Pi, and far more.

Get the best of BYOD: You’ll be seeing a range of schemes and methods designed to help you get the absolute most out of your school’s approach to bring-your-own-device policies.

Free Edtech Tools: At #exabytes17, you can expect to be introduced to some fantastic edtech resources - we’ll actually be sharing a few over the weekend with our post on teaching resources, while the Bradford TeachMeet on the 6th, right before #exabytes, is also set to be a great way to discover tools that don’t cost a thing.

Tickets for #exabytes17 cost just £58.80, or £10 if your school is an Exa customer, and can be booked through our EventBrite page all the way up till the day before the event!
