Event Description The 2013 Conference for IT Professionals working in schools and educational settings throughout Dorset welcomes Tim Rylands to lead our 2013 conference. Tim is well known around the world for his innovative approach and has been described as “an extremely gifted and inspirational teacher, with a love of the creative potential of technology and an excellent rapport with his pupils.”

Tim's keynote speech will explore the theme ICT to inspire: Raising children's levels of creativity. He has received notable recognition for using computer games, and Web 2 technologies to inspire children's creative confidence in many areas of the curriculum - writing, speaking and listening, music, thinking skills, collaboration, interaction and much more. Tim is a firm believer that ICT is about communication more than technology … and that it should be FUN!

Come prepared to be inspired and leave with many practical ideas to apply back in the classroom. In addition, there will be opportunities to network with, and learn from, colleagues, and return to settings empowered and reinvigorated.
