    Yes, I wonder what ill-conceived yet sector-shaking announcement he will make this year (I was there when he disassociated ICT from the curriculum... he needs to better himself this year!)

    I predict that the word 'cloud' will feature highly, yet non specifically.

    All support staff will be given shock collars.
    Teachers will be given the controls.

    Big Data I think will be mentioned more. He loves his terms that are so abstract they could mean anything, yet he doesn't understand their meaning, particularly in a school environment!

    Seems unlikely that Gove would ever do something that would be that popular with teachers.

    Fine, all staff are given shock collars. All students are given the controls.

    It's to empower students.

    We're nerds/geeks. I'm sure we can come up with a way to... "fix" it.

    The schedule on the Android app has been updated to 2014. The plan is rubbish and nothing else seems to work.

    The iOS app seems to be on 2013 still.

    @GrumbleDook, another moan about the app on twitter wouldn't go amiss.

    The Android app now has a 2014 schedule, but the tabs for Exhibitors, Products and Speakers do nothing (I am surprised the Exhibitors, who are paying massive fees after all, aren't moaning) Last year's app included presentations in exhibitor theatres (like Microsoft) as well as exhibition theatres; this year they aren't there.

    The iOS app is still doing last year!

    It is so frustrating!
