-- A Day of Discovery – Embracing curriculum change to develop a 21st century classroom
is the title of the first in a series of no-cost
day CPD sessions developed to help teachers prepare for the new national curriculum. Delivered by Espresso Education, now a part of Discovery Education, this first-of-its-
kind event will cover what’s new in the national curriculum and practical steps teachers can take to ensure success in their implementation. The Day of Discovery will take place on the 30th
June 2014 and will be hosted at Discovery Communications’

With a strong focus on technology integration, pedagogical experts from Espresso and Discovery Education will identify practical implementation strategies and present exciting ideas on how best to deliver the new curriculum, while developing a 21st
century classroom. Enquiry based learning, what it looks like and why it can work, as well as coding, will also be discussed. Session content will be product-neutral and suitable for implementation in any classroom.

With a strong emphasis on digital media and technology as an enabler, teachers will explore best practices that can be implemented immediately in the classroom. Most importantly, it’s about connecting educators with their most valuable resource – each other.”
