November is always a busy month for e-learning events – and for Webanywhere, it’s four weeks packed with calendar dates across the country!
Nurturing Online Learning is a series of events taking place (predominantly) in local primary schools. Many of these schools are winners of the Create Your Character Competition, and have kindly agreed to help out with the hosting of events.
Most of the events feature CEOP Ambassador and former teacher Tracey Gentle, who has a wealth of knowledge in e-learning, e-safety and Ofsted requirements for school websites. Tracey has already presented at two successful Webanywhere events, in Sheffield and Hull, and has helped schools meet Ofsted requirements for their website, as well as helping them to understand the benefits of e-learning better.
You can find out details about the events on our Events page over at Newsanywhere, but below you’ll find an overview of the Nurturing Online Learning sessions. All of these events are free for schools to attend. If you would more information, or wish to attend, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
