Weeknote 20th June 2014


This week I’ve been in London, with trips to Croydon and Westfield Junior school in Hampshire.


  • Speaking at the ‘Build Croydon’ event for encouraging young people to get involved in technology and digital making.
  • Discussing a keynote I will be doing at the UNICEF education innovation conference in Montenegro later in the month.
  • Discussing the ins and outs of the Education Technology Action Group work around the use of cloud based technologies in schools at a round table convened by Microsoft.
  • Analysing the initial findings from our Flipped Learning project in Scotland with colleagues from NFER. There have been some interesting trends emerging and we are getting into more detail with it next week.
  • Catching up on a number of reports about education technology, international education, teacher retention and pupil premium funding that have been in my reading list for a while.
  • Meeting with TSL education to hear about their work linking Ed Tech startups and teachers.
  • Visiting Third Space Learning to support with the implementation of our Remote Tutoring EEF trial.
  • Getting to grips with our new project reporting system that we are are starting to use at Nesta.
  • Attending the Alliance for Useful Evidence event on data visualisation.

Next week I’m starting off by attending the ETAG general meeting, with some other interesting meetings planned and quite a lot of planning for subsequent talks and projects.
