Link2ICT: Management & Learning Solutions

Link2ICT Primary Head Teachers' Conference 2013 - Presentations

We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to schools that attended the Link2ICT Primary Head Teachers' Conference 2013. It was another hugely successful event with 90 delegates from Birmingham schools attending.

Feedback has been very positive with requests for more of these types of events that enable schools to learn and share information around ICT in Education. If you were unable to attend, don’t miss out on future events, such as the Link2ICT Annual Conference. We aim to build on each of these events, bringing you information that will aid your ICT development in schools for both teaching and learning.

Following on from this, we now have the presentations available for your viewing. If you missed out or would simply like to see the presentations again, you can do so by viewing the following links:
