SSAT Speed Learning Event Brixton

It's more than a game. See for yourself how a games based learning approach can motivate and engage pupils.

Sherston Sofware are pleased to be one of the sponsors of this event. Chris Chambers, Educational Consultant at Sherston, will discuss how until now, the standard of online gaming offered to the consumer market far outclassed the digital equivalent in schools. See for yourself how Planet Sherston’s cutting edge games based learning approach can motivate pupils and improve results.

More about The Primary Network - Speed Learning Summer Series 2013

Knowing how precious everyone's time is - 'speed learning' aims to provide an intensive but fun learning opportunity after school. Colleagues leave each event having picked up a series of top tips and short term strategies to support learning as well as one or two longer term ideas and thoughts.


When you arrive you will be warmly greeted by teachers, teaching assistants, heads and leaders – all of whom are part of the Primary Network – the largest school-led national network of primary practitioners.


Running from 15.45 – 17.45, you can have a well-earned cup of tea and a few biscuits whilst you hear a 15-minute keynote on the latest educational developments from one of the school leaders. Then, choose six tables to visit that reflect your highest priorities. Move around the carousels, ‘speed-dating’ style, to hear three minute nano-presentations at each table followed by discussion with like-minded colleagues on practical, relevant classroom topics.


Each Speed Learning session will cover different topics and will be tailored to local priorities.
