What to expect at #exabytes17

Planning ahead for #exabytes17

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.

With our #exabytes conference’s timetable being based around what attendees want to see, we can’t tell you exactly what’s going to be happening across the day just yet. However, there’s already quite a bit of interest in some of the potential topics for the conference.

In today’s 31 Ways in May post, we’re taking a look at a few of the topics for presentations and workshops that you can expect to see this July at #exabytes17 - keep in mind that there’ll be far more to see on the day itself:

Learning Platforms: Picking and getting the very best out of various learning platforms, like iTunesU, Office 365, G Suite and more.

Assessment Apps: The possibility of streamlining marking by using a range of digital solutions such as Kahoot, Socrative and Plickers.

Digital Making: Every side of digital making, from various projects for BBC micro:bit to the learning potential of Raspberry Pi and Minecraft, along with looks at Scratch and more.

Teaching Safety: Practical, tested and working methods to help improve school strategies for approaching online safety.

Boosting BYOD: Discuss the potential use of bring-your-own-device schemes, and how to get the best learning results from using them.

You’ll be able to vote on what happens at #exabytes all the way up till June the 16th, when we’ll start to finalise the schedule of events - expect a full announcement soon after!
