Duration: 1 minute 45 seconds

I can honestly say this was the most beneficial conference/event I have attended in 12 years of teaching. There were no sales pitches… just 100% pedagogy and sharing. It was what every course should aim to be. Loved it!

A brilliant day that re-lights enthusiasm for innovation and sharing. So many great things out there and it was a good platform to share just some of these ideas. Obviously a brilliant venue made all the better by being superbly organised by a great team – Thanks!

Thanks for the opportunity to join in this really exciting event. It was a really great day and has got me fired up with lots of great ideas that I can't wait to try out and share with staff. Inspirational.

Keynote: Dean Shareski, from Discovery Education Canada, shared his perspective on the value of educators sharing – he considers it a moral imperative. This set the tone and encouraged delegates to share throughout the day.

Breakout Sessions: Delegates chose two sessions from the six breakouts being led by UK teachers, US teachers and the Discovery Education team on topics including green screening, digital literacy and cross-curricular coding.

Strategy Showcase: Teachers from 12 UK schools took the opportunity to share practical digital teaching ideas or successful initiatives from their school. Topics included mystery Skyping, augmented reality, an inter-school STEM project and digital media to support SEN learners.

Twitter: Catch-up on the conversation using #DENapalooza. Join the conversation through other popular Discovery Education Community hashtags #UKDENchat and #SpotlightOnStrategies.
