Not Long Now…EdTech 15 | Webanywhere Blog

Published: June 4, 2015

EdTech 15 is nearly upon us and it’s safe to say it’s been a hectic few weeks here at Webanywhere. We’re currently very busy putting together the finishing touches to what we’re expecting to be a very exciting day in Leeds.

We were recently able to announce our Keynote Speaker, renowned headteacher and star of the BAFTA-award-winning series Educating Yorkshire, Jonny Mitchell. Mr Mitchell will be delivering a speech around the topic of “Ethos in Education”, something that we’re really looking forward to.

Alongside Mr Mitchell, we’ll have talks from Mark McManus, a cloud services manager from Microsoft. Mark will be discussing the benefits of integrating office 365 (a free product for schools) within existing systems, as well as the possibilities of adopting cloud computing within education. We’ll also have a talk from Ben Wagner, with his acclaimed talk and how best to utilise an open-source LMS within schools. Webanywhere’s very own Sean Gilligan will be opening the conference exploring the latest technology in education trends and describing his own e-learning journey.

Along with a high calibre of speakers we’ll have a range of quality exhibitors showcasing some of the latest e-Learning trends within education technology, we currently have Microsoft, Planet Sherston and NetSupport all exhibiting and  showcasing their products, with more to follow.

The Education Technology Conference 2015 will be taking place from 9am to 5pm on June 23 at the Hilton Leeds City. Entry is completely free and includes admission to all talks and seminars as well as a two-course lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
