We’ve promoted this great conference before but were now thrilled to announce that Microsoft Education UK will be giving away 300 surface devices to schools at the conference.
On Monday 9th December 2013 Tablets for Schools will be holding their first conference at the QEII in Westminster. The focus will be on providing delegates with practical experience for using tablets in the classroom.
All proceeds from the conference will be re-invested into the next stages of research. Tablets for Schools have spent two years researching and providing thought leadership on the use of tablets in schools, and their recent Stage 3 report examines their impact.
If you would like to be in with a chance to receive one of the Surface RT’s on offer please see the note linked here and bring the completed agreement form to the event. Due to regulations we will be unable to give away devices to schools that haven’t completed this form.
Please see below our list of speakers for the day.
