The #Frog16 London conference was on Thursday 23 June and people from across the country attended The Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden despite the near apocalyptic weather!
After our attendees arrived and dried off, our Managing Director, Gareth Davies welcomed everyone, reflected on the past year and outlined our focus and direction for the future.
The Keynote, Mick Walker gave a brilliant and insightful presentation on ‘The Future of Assessment’. Mick presented highlights of Tim Oates’ presentation from the Birmingham Frog Conference on 7 June.
To round off the morning, delegates split into groups for our interactive sessions, ‘Overcoming the Challenge’ where school leaders discussed the challenge of delivering more teaching and learning in a world of reduced school budgets. Our ‘Discover Frog Tech’ session for technical staff introduced delegates to FrogCode, giving more creative control to schools. It was brilliant to see so many of our users sharing how they use Frog to enhance teaching and learning.
After lunch, delegates attended workshops on ‘Whole School Improvement’ and ‘The Future of Assessment’ with amazing insights from school leaders;
Nick House, Head Teacher, Greenshaw High School,
Clare Powlesland, Deputy Head Teacher, St Columbia’s College,
Sean Quinn, eLearning Manager, Rugby High School,
Matthew Hewitt, Deputy Head Teacher, Noadswood School,
and Simon Smith, Head Teacher, East Whitby Primary School.
We rounded off the day with a Q&A unlocking the secrets to great learning with less, hosted by Roger Brodie from NAACE with panellists from our school workshop speakers.
