Where?

  • At the weekend I was involved in running Ed Invent Brighton, a workshop and hack day for educators to develop Ed Tech ideas. This will feed in to a Startup Weekend in Brighton in the Autumn to bring some of these ideas to life. It was a great weekend, with such enthusiasm from everyone involved. The NightZookeeper team wrote up proceedings here.
