Education on Fire goes to LA for Podcast Movement 17

I am so excited to say this week I will be attending Podcast Movement 17 in Anaheim, California.

I am going to meet the best podcasters in the world and learn as much as I can to make the Education on Fire podcast as inspiring as it possibly can be. I have taken a sharp learning curve in creating this podcast so far and if you want to improve then surrounding yourself with the best is great advice. That is exactly what I am doing.

I will let you know all the insights when I return and point you in the direction of some awesome content by the podcasters that I meet.

Edutech Show 6-7 October 2017 London Olympia


Edutech Show 2017

Curriculum centred exhibition launched for UK Teachers at Olympia, London.

NAPE are pleased to support this upcoming conference and the Education on Fire podcast will be there getting all the behind the scenes information for its Life Long Learning listeners.

Edutech show is set to launch this autumn at Olympia, London on 6-7 October.

Organised by Events Ltd and supported by the Primary School Association, NAPE and media partners Education Technology, Independent Education Today, and Academy Today magazines.

Edutech is designed for UK teachers and educational practitioners and aims to bridge the gap between technology and the curriculum by demonstrating how technology can support them and drive engagement in the classroom.

Event organiser Joanna Burke MD at VAB Events said: “ The Ed-tech event sector has become extremely fragmented for UK Teachers who are always searching for practical tips and ideas on how to use technology more effectively in the classroom. Edutech Show aims to demystify technology and make it more accessible by providing an expert range of speakers and commentators who can ‘pull back the curtain’ and provide practical tips and ideas that can be used in any educational setting. “

The free-to-attend event will showcase the latest products and services whilst delivering over 40 insightful seminars, master classes and demo sessions covering topical themes such as the Curriculum, E-Safety, Reality of the modern classroom, Learning models, and Big data.

Suppliers will demonstrate the latest technology and services to support practitioners across all subjects from Arts to Science and develop working partnerships.

Visitors will also be able to relax in the Networking Lounge or Café or catch up with colleagues.

Pre-event registration is available now – seminar registration will open by the end of May 17. To guarantee entry to popular seminar sessions visit:
