The Education Innovation Conference and Exhibition is to be held at the Manchester Central Convention Centre, Manchester between the 8 and 9 of March.With free admission to the exhibition and many of the seminars and events it promises to make an interesting new addition to the annual educational ICT shows list.

    And EduGeek will be there too! Come and see us on stand E3 and stop for a chat, coveted lanyard, bottle opener and pointers as to where many of the exhibitors and sessions are located or just to catch up. We’ll be more than happy to see you.

    What’s on?

    • New landscapes: what is the future of ICT in education?

      The only male panelist on there ... All others (inc the chair) are female ...

      Awww we I could attempt to do a tiger job on @GrumbleDook but it might look more like what has happened when a tiger crossed a Toyota Hilux in the jungles at high speed as I am very much not artistic!

      Looking forward to meeting members on the Saturday with @GrumbleDook and @Dos_Box

      Hehehe, hardly... @GrumbleDook knows we disagree on some things, @elsiegee40 knows we disagree on others... but I've never had cause to doubt the fact that we all respect each other as professionals at the end of the day
