  • Come away with ideas and tips you can put into practice the very next day.

LearnED Online 2020 .

In 2020, we hosted LearnED Online, a teacher-led, virtual conference to share learning and best practice across schools.
You can still register to access all of the content for free – register here.

This conference included Expert Panel discussions and Masterclasses covering three overarching themes:

  • What school looks like now
  • How schools are revisiting learning lost during lockdown
  • How schools are designing their remote education and blended learning strategies

During these online sessions, a range of educational experts and teachers shared their experiences of using educational technology in school. There’s a focus on the lessons we can learn from lockdown – what has worked well and what has worked less well. There’s also advice on how to make this work for your students.


Julia Garvey, Operations Director at BESA explains more about LearnED Online 2020 in the video below.
