IRISS Podcast: If you can do it in schools, could you do it for social services?

Description

As part of a programme to foster better use of technology in the social services, IRISS, SSSC and the Learning Networks have organised a conference and exhibition on Friday 25 February 2011. The conference offered a range of workshops aimed at demystifying the use and range of learning technologies. It also offered assistance in developing cost efficient and accessible solutions for the social services workforce. In August 2010 at Cedars, Fraser successfully led the world’s first 1:1 deployment of iPads in a whole-school setting. He will explain the rationale behind the decision to invest in iPads and describe their impact on teaching and learning at Cedars School of Excellence in Greenock. Fraser Speirs is Director of Connected Flow, Ltd. He is also the Head of Computing and IT at Cedars School of Excellence in Greenock, Scotland. He has previously worked at the University of Glasgow on IT projects supporting the Large Hadron Collider experiment at CERN.
