Engaging Kids Today: It’s about pedagogy not just technology. The body of literature around student engagement is vast and continues to grow. Educators have never been better informed of the complexities and interactions between pedagogy, technology, neuroscience and engagement. Yet, across the western world in particular, studies suggest that student engagement levels continue to drop. Why is this? Could one of the reasons be, that despite all the talk of an Education Revolution, most of the action centres around standardisation, assessment and accountability? In this presentation, Dan explores how, by understanding authentic engagement teachers can inspire mini-revolutions in their own schools and communities, to ensure that – not only are kids prepared for tomorrow – they are engaged today.

Reliability is Everything. Technology lessons learned from one of the UK’s top ranking schools. Marek Polniaszek – Head of IT at Wilson’s School, Sutton. In an environment of increasing demand for ‘digital technologies in the classroom’, blended learning, BYOD, 1:1 and the relentless growth of educational applications, coupled with ever-constricting budgets, the requirement for a reliable technology infrastructure is paramount. An appropriate educational technology solution requires three components: 1. Infrastructure reliability 2. Consistently reliable high performance 3. Reliable and predictable longevity In this informative, straight-talking session, Marek Polniaszek, Wilson’s School’s Head of IT skips the hype and marketing to discuss how they put an end to the constant fix-patches and instead engineer a new infrastructure architecture designed to transform a slow, unreliable legacy environment to an extremely reliable, high performance and ubiquitous IT delivery system designed to benefit all subjects and departments, with measurable results. Wilson’s school now delivers an education eco-system that consistently places it at the top of UK rankings, and at over 400 years old, the school has had to continually adapt over centuries to meet ever-changing expectations. With schools throughout the country replicating this model, this is a session not to be missed. Marek is a head of IT, consultant and coach who is an expert at achieving the highest performance outcome utilising the minimum possible resources. With 30 years’ experience in the IT industry, Marek has mastered multiple IT roles, working on several, multi-national projects, including Unilever and Radianz. Moving from an enterprise environment where money was not so constrained, into education where budgets continually tighten has allowed Marek to develop a highly efficient IT strategy that other schools throughout the country are replicating. As well as heading up IT at Wilson’s School in Sutton, Marek now advises other schools on infrastructure policies and implementation.
