Our Top 5 from #exabytes16

Five great sights from #exabytes16

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.

Today’s the 10th day of our 31 Ways in May, a series of great reasons to take the time to visit #exabytes17, our teacher-led conference on technology in the classroom. Today, we’ve got a bit of a retro theme going on - we’re taking a look at 5 of the most exciting things we saw at last year’s #exabytes show to give you an idea of the kind of thing you can expect when you head over to the show this year!

Expert Presenters: From the keynote to the conclusion, we had some truly excellent presenters at #exabytes16, many of who have been gracious enough to volunteer their time for #exabytes17. Major thanks to all of those who’ve taken time out of their day to help out at #exabytes over the last two years.

Great Choices: One of the most popular things about #exabytes16 was the sheer range of topics being discussed. With sessions looking at everything from online safety to the development of the curriculum, using apps in the classroom and Digital Making, there’s really something for everyone - particularly if you vote on what’s taking place at this year’s #exabytes conference (as you can if you register before the 16th June)!

Robots in Action: You might want to watch where you’re stepping at #exabytes17 - with people bringing their homemade robots to the show, there just might be something underfoot (and the collision detection isn’t that advanced…).

People Learning: If you check out the Twitter feed for any PiJam (or similar events), you’ll see just what makes hands-on learning special, as people get to the point where they’re able to make LEDs flash, buzzers buzz and motors move with code that they’ve written - as you can see in the below tweets.

Great Reviews: There’s no point in running a conference like #exabytes unless the attendees actually get something out of it. That’s why it was particularly fantastic to see just how much our guests enjoyed themselves at the show, and it’s why we’re working to make #exabytes17 even more special.
