The Creative Use of ICT in the Classroom for Writers
Fri 2 May 2008
Presented by NAWE in partnership with Birmingham Book Festival, this day is aimed at writers with a track record of working in schools and other educational settings. 9 July 2008, 10-4pm, The Martineau Centre, Birmingham.

This seminar will be an opportunity to strengthen your skills as a writer working in schools, particularly in the context of new technologies, and will provide invaluable skills and experience sharing with other writers in the field. Broken down into two sections, firstly it will be a practical, hands-on session in which writers come together to discuss common ground in their work together, and share tried and tested ideas that they have used in their work in the classroom.

This section will enable writers to take away a fresh set of workshop ideas for various age ranges and purposes and have a chance to look at ways in which they would like to take their career and professional development further. The second half will be held in a state of the art pc suite at the venue and consists of training led by ICT consultant Paula Daniel on the effective and creative use of ICT (such as interactive whiteboards) in the classroom to help writers make the most of their time in schools.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

There are 15 places available to NAWE members. Cost: £30

If you are interested in attending, please email Anne Caldwell for a booking form.
