Come and celebrate all the hard work that everyone has done this year:
- exploring and demonstrating how social media can make a real difference to the effectiveness of our learning and teaching
- battling restrictions and insecurities about new technologies and pedagogic practices
- putting the learner at the center of formal and informal learning
- making sure education is a creative, playful, enjoyable and worthwhile experience for all
