IRIS Connect are delighted to be taking part in the 12th Annual Festival of Learning Conference at Cramlington Learning Village, Northumberland on the 27th June 2013.

Described by a Headteacher as “one of the best conferences I've ever attended in 8 years of teaching – I was absolutely blown away by the quality of the workshops”; IRIS Connect celebrates the collaborative environment and the sharing of skills, tips, lessons learnt created at the school.

The workshops available are centered upon 3 key areas:

  • Lead Learning

Delegates will discover more on the leadership of learning, how the schools core beliefs permeate all that they do and undercover the secrets to effective CPD that supports and challenges staff to continually raise the standard of teaching and learning.

  • Love Learning

Workshops are based upon the Cramlington model of teaching & learning which has been the cornerstone to their success. Delegates will explore a range of highly successful, tried and tested approaches designed to engage learners, improve lesson planning and inform classroom practice.

  • Live Learning

Workshops showcase how Cramlington live and breathe their core message to develop successful, independent learners and thinkers through their use of ICT, project based learning, blended curriculum design and more.

When teachers come together to discuss, celebrate, challenge and try out new things together we see great things happen. Cramlington Learning Village is the perfect example of this.”
