Background  ELC’s Connected Learning Network has been installed in all our secondary schools and two primaries and is due to be extended to other schools over the next couple of years

Designed for  Any teacher who wants to find out more on the exciting possibilities enabled by the Connected Learning Network.

Benefits of attending  It will be an opportunity to understand the differences in the legacy school IT infrastructure and what it will be like with the Connected Learning Network.  You will learn about how BYOD can be effectively managed and how to engage and motivate learners by allowing them to use their own devices.
