Keep taking the tablets - free tablet computing seminar

Tuesday 22nd October 2013, Easthampstead Park Conference Centre

For sat navs use: RG40 3DB

I am delighted to be able to extend to you an invitation to a forthcoming event, "Keep taking the tablets", which is being held at Easthampstead Park Conference Centre (in the Bracknell Forest Education Centre, top floor) on Tuesday 22 October, starting at 09:00.

IP Performance, in conjunction with EVC, Siracom and Meru Networks, are pleased to announce a free morning seminar on tablet computing and the challenges facing schools and other educational establishments. This fully-catered seminar, technology demonstration and interactive Q&A session will run from 09:00 until 14:00. There will be opportunities for round-table discussions as well as private one-to-one meetings with representatives from IP Performance, EVC, Siracom and Meru Networks. The event is firmly aimed at education professionals with strategic responsibility for ICT - senior leaders, teaching and technical staff.

Tablet computers offer a variety of powerful tools in an easy-to-use and engaging way and many schools would like to implement them as part of their technology offering. However, as with all classroom technologies, they are not an educational panacea and some schools have bought sets of tablets only to see them being under utilised.

Successful implementation requires all the links in the implementation chain: broadband, wireless networking (WiFi), hardware (tablets), software (apps) - as well as various educational and implementation measures - to be in place and to be strong. This seminar will explore what that means in practice.

This event is brought to you by IP Performance and Education Vision Consultancy, together with Meru Networks, Siracom, Samsung and Stormfront.
