Using Innovative Technologies in the Classroom event

Following last year’s successful event, Topcliffe Primary School in Birmingham hosted a day of hands-on experiences of ‘Using Innovative Technologies in the Classroom’ featuring input from the TEL Echoes project team.

Researchers presented work undertaken in five different schools. The process of digital story creation and web portals was presented and participants had the opportunity to get involved in workshops and discussions with staff, children and researchers.

This event formed part of the ESRC’s Festival of Social Science.
