The event had two distinct, but related objectives. The first objective is to consider the issue of digital and social media use in learning environments from a policy and leadership perspective and the second objective will focus on digital practices already taking place in schools or as part of a learning experience. The event will be interactive, striking a balance between information giving, showcasing of good practice, discussion and creative ‘making’ activities.
