Pre-event SERAS Mini-Conference with Sheffield Robotics’ Tony Prescott, Patricia Charlton from the OU and Dave Gibbs from STEM Learning.

Please register for our first pre-conference event – an online discussion on December 10th featuring Professor Tony Prescott, Dr Patricia Charlton and Dave Gibbs.

These are exciting times in educational technology. Please join three of the UK’s top thought leaders – Professor Tony Prescott from Sheffield Robotics, Dr Patricia Charlton from the Open University and Institute of Coding and Dave Gibbs from STEM Learning – as they discuss the future of robotics, AI and IoT in all levels of education. Tony Prescott will discuss the future of work and society and the work of SERAS in addressing the UK skills gap; Patricia will explore the importance of a multi-disciplinary co-design approach to introducing technology into the curriculum and how to build evidence to assess what works at scale; while Dave Gibbs will discuss the challenges facing schools and teachers in preparing students for the workplace of 2030.
