How can you make homework a happy experience? How do you handle a challenging class? How do you produce teaching resources that are the envy of your colleagues?
These questions – and more – will be answered in a series of TES-organised seminars, to be held at Bett, the world’s leading education-technology fair, this month. TES is the global knowledge partner for the event and will be organising a live newsroom and publishing a free daily digital edition especially for delegates.
Every day of the four-day fair, to be held at London’s Excel centre, will include at least four TES presentations. These range significantly in content, from national and international overviews to classroom guidance for individual teachers.
So, for example, TES career agony uncle Theo Griff will discuss the big mistakes that teachers should look out for when applying for a new job and for those looking to shake up their careers, while Lord Knight, former schools minister-turned-TES chief education adviser, will be discussing how teachers and support staff are using the internet to reach a global audience.
Meanwhile, teachers looking to wow pupils and colleagues will be able to seek advice from TES experts, including behaviour adviser Tom Bennett and teacher-trainer Mike Gershon, while others, including TES FE columnist Sarah Simons will discuss the dark side of social media.
