LGfL Schools' Conference 2015 - 20 April 

***two strands - curriculum and services*** 

Booking now open at conferencebooking.lgfl.net

  
The annual LGfL London Schools’ Conference has established itself as a major CPD event in the schools’ calendar and continues to enjoy consistently positive feedback from attendees. This year, to meet varying CPD needs, alongside the main conference, LGfL is offering a ‘Services/Technical Stream’, as a separate conference event in its own space at the same venue.
 
The LGfL broadband service is unique in that included with your school’s connection is a wide range of additional services from which some schools gain enormous value while others remain unaware of what they are missing out on. The purpose of the services stream is to allow ICT coordinators and support staff to become more aware, confident and in control of this array of services.
 
From taking advantage of MyDrive (a school-safe alternative to Dropbox™), or knowing how to tailor your Internet filtering policy to match your particular school requirements, or how to create a tighter policy for pupils and a wider one for staff – to learning how to save your school a lot of money by using Internet telephony – and much more, the Services Conference will be packed with useful information and guidance on how to make the most of all that your LGfL connection brings to you.
 
The Services Conference is entirely suitable for those who are less than technically super-confident. It is not a session for ‘technical gurus’, for whom a separate event will be offered in late June. Once again, the main Curriculum-focussed Conference together with the Services Conference will be held at the Mermaid Conference and Events Centre in the heart of the City at Blackfriars.
 
The delegate rate of £85 ex vat includes lunch and refreshments however the cost will be covered in full by LGfL thanks to generous sponsorship by our key supplier partners. To reserve your place at the conference, while places are still available, please make a booking  for the day and select your break-out options via www.conferencebooking.lgfl.net on or after Monday 26th January.
 
The keynote presentations will be:
  o  Social Media: Risks, Opportunities and Obligations – Simon Finch, NGfL
  o  Safeguarding Children from Extremism  Sara Khan, Inspire
  o  Digital Learning Futures – Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth
  o  Inspecting Schools for eSafety and Computing – David Brown HMI, Ofsted
