Growing Greener Futures Conference
Holy Trinity Rosehill C.E. Primary School (Stockton on Tees)
Friday 22nd October 2010

Just to let you know about an exciting forthcoming conference that promises to combine two of my passions: outdoor learning and technology. The conference promises to:

explore outdoor learning through the themes of gardening, conservation, cooking, sustainability and digital technologies. Delegates will have the opportunity to experience keynote presentations from nationally recognised experts in the field as well as participate in hands-on and thought-provoking workshops throughout the day.

Amongst the stellar lineup of contributors are:

  •  internationally renowned learning technologist Ollie Bray who will be presenting a keynote on ‘Outdoor Learning and Digital Technologies’.
  •  Andy Black  an inspirational educator whose company I had the pleasure of at the LOB10 conference earlier this year.
  • Bill Lord a passionate advocate of the written word and Teachmeet regular. His presentations have the air of stand-up comedy with a serious educational edge.
  • Steve Bunce, the ‘Wit of Twitter’ will provide a session on outdoor learning and video games.
  • Kirklees’ very own Jo Liversidge who is a shining light of Forest School philosophy and a keen advocate of new technologies.

Full details and booking details can be found on the conference website.
