Hello, and welcome to another episode of the Mr Barton Maths Podcast, with me Craig Barton.
This is another of my conference Takeaways, where I sit down at the end of a conference with a fellow delegate to share our main takeaways for the benefit of people who are unable to attend. This time the event was researchEd Blackpool, which was held in the Las Vegas of Lancashire on March 24th 2018.
Now, this was my first ever researchEd event, but it will certainly not be my last. As you will hear, the line-up of speakers is ridiculously good, and I know of no other way to tap into such a diverse wealth of experience and insight. I had a great time.
In this episode you will hear takeaways from the sessions delivered by:
Baroness Estelle Morris
Tom Bennett – @tombennett71
Carl Henrdick – @C_Hendrick - and Robin Macpherson – @robin_macp
Mark Healy – @cijane02
Tom Sherrington – @teacherhead
Harry Fletcher-Wood – @HFletcherWood
And some annoying Maths bloke from Preston
Huge thanks to researchEd Blackpool organiser Simon Cox for organising such a wonderful event, and squeezing out a few final drOps of energy to talk to me for this podcast after such a long day. And to the living legend that is Tom Bennett, for creating a movement which truly does have the power to change students’ and teachers’ lives for the better all around the world.
Thanks so much for listening, and I really hope you enjoy the show!
