Drinks on Friday evening? Silly silly question!

Gorbash-! I've already sent a message about quantities of guiness they need to have via current Leeds trinity inmates I'm working with.

I think I will be able to find it again - part of my 'SHP survivor kit' for this year! Shall we make Saturday pizza night? I have school on Friday so will meet you all for my customary cola on the Friday night. :)

I'm going for history is mint, beyond role play turning your classroom into a tardis, enjoying and achieving strategies for dept and full colour history.

Session A ------ Friday 3.30-5.00 ------ Passive receivers or constructive readers? How and why should we engage pupils with academic works of history?
Session B ------ Saturday 9.00 - 10.30 ------ Bridging the gap for the iGeneration - a move towards total immersive learning
Session C ------ Saturday 11.10 - 12.40 ------ "History is mint!" Engaging reluctant historians at Key Stage 4
Session D ------ Saturday 3.30 - 5.00 ------ Significance or semantics? Scaling the ladder of historical significance
Session E ------ Sunday 10.35-12.05 ------ Enjoying and achieving in History: strategies for departmental improvement

A= Because I want to push the boundaries a little and move my students beyond school textbooks and teacher made worksheets
B= Purely becausde my school is about to ban mobile phones/iPods etc and I want to be the fly in the ointment over this! Any practical ideas that I can easily implement will be more than welcome.
C= With the eBacc and the way that my HT is pushing students to do the eBacc now purely because the data suggests they may be capable of a grade C I want a few new ideas....
D= Wanted something that I know I'm a little weak on and need to improve on
E= Likely to be facing OFSHITE in the next academic year so a few new ideas would be good!!!

Hmmmm.....looks like I'm just generally after new ideas! Here's hoping the sessions are good.
Its not who I am but what I do which defines me...

No idea - get as many people to sign up for the 'fringe' meeting! We had around 30 people last year and I will be producing some posters to put around to promote it. I want to record the session and we also plan to put it live on the internet via a flashmeeting.

People presenting and topics:

Donald Cumming - tbc
Esther Arnott - making history 'real' for students: experiences from OCR Pilot heritage marketing
Dave Stacey - VIDEO PRESENTATION - tbc - Possibly something about what we learned from teaching the OCR Pilot course
Neal Watkin - The 'History' of Literacy: from Bananas to Mortar Boards
Nichola Boughey - 21st Century Online History Teacher's Toolkit based on an HA Bursary Project
Mark Stacey - Wikipedia and WW1 research project
Nick Dennis - SAMR and FRAME thinking for History Teaching
Sally Thorne - using Kindles in the classroom
Julie Wright - Buckets and Balloons - trying to create a Carol Dweck learning environment

I am looking forward to all of them (apart from mine) but I am very interested in Julie Wright's presentation on Carol Dweck's work.

If you want to sign up, please go to this link. You can also state your 'attendance' using the Facebook event invite.

If you are taking pictures of the sessions in the teaching rooms and in the bar (!), please upload them to the Facebook group. If you want to see the conference programme online, please click here.

Looking forward to an exciting, humbling and fun weekend. :)
