London Festival of Education 2012

I thought I’d start this blog off with an event I attended which was the inaugural London Festival of Education took place at the Institute of Education in London on Saturday 17th November. The event was the first of its kind, with a variety of speakers including the Education secretary, Michael Gove, writers Michael Rosen and Anthony Horowitz and many others talking on a variety of topics including the use of technology in education and debating various points of view in depth. The quality of the discussions and the presentations were excellent!

There were several sessions on how technology in education, including the team behind the Raspberry Pi computer, a cheap computer for children to engage with coding on, demonstrating the Raspberry Pi.
