Appreciated topics not being 'dumbed down' for all people but remained professional accessible. Info was presented for selection of relevance by viewers and assimilating to own field. Allowed for lateral learning.
Presentations by Nicola Gates. It was fantastic to hear Nicola's perspective and variety of information, the specific perspective on WM was very useful!
The sessions relating to teaching and strategies were most relevant but I really enjoyed how each speaker added to the perspective of the whole picture.
I am going away with things that will improve my practice. I found the content most relevant, useful and providing implications for good practice. This is the second Pearson conference I have attended, a very professional organisation that delivers quality.
The information is current and highly relevant to current teaching practices.
Well organised, simple registration process, relevance to my context, reasonable cost, very informative.
Highly pertinent to my roles as support teacher, literacy & numeracy, to assist teachers and students.
