Tuesday 5 October

How is learning changing? What does a future classroom look like? And how will we support our learners?

Our Education of the Future day on Tuesday 5 October is essential viewing for teachers, educationalists and parents alike. 

Morning - available to view from 6am onwards

Bring our STEAM (Science Technology, Engineering and Maths) event to your Assembly and see how North Dorset pupils solved some tricky problems. Use the recording to stimulate discussion on collaboration and problem solving, digital solutions and future learning.

Filmed at St Mary’s, the link to the STEAM event recording goes live at 6am and will be available here. Use it any time from Tuesday 5 October onwards, alongside a list of ideas to stimulate discussion among pupils and staff. 

Afternoon - 5pm to 7pm

What does a classroom of the future look like? Join us as we see a classroom of the future in action in Shaftesbury. Augmented and virtual reality are the norm, supporting interactive learning with pupils in Africa and social and emotional development here in Dorset. See how Dorset is investing in a beautiful and inspiring site for its pupils with special needs and join the chat about the future of education.
