Last night attended network meeting of VITAL CPD in Cambridge. A gathering of VItal Professionals (VPs) and wannabes like myself. Sessions included:

– using video to create a weekly newsreel for your school
Led by Ian Pratt, VP, Goldington Academy, Bedford
Very practical, cheap and easy to do – thanks for the inspiration Ian

– introduction to the Vital ProfessionalDevelopment Partnership
Led by Deborah Record, Eastern Regional Manager
Well I’m convinced – can SLTs identify the value?

– keynote presentation using Collaborate video conferencing on Using kindles for education
Led by Duncan Garbett, W Midlands Regional Manager
Good examples of useinc. Visually impaired and EAL students in pilot projects

– how can we create young digital leaders in your school
Led by Andy Knill, Wannabe, Bower Park School, Havering
Can’t blow my own trumpet but a range of points discussed – hope everyone gained from it.

– plenary and prize draw

A good use of face to face and online networking time.
