After a very successful Collabor8 4 Change at BETT 2011 (see here for some of the feedback we received), we're running another one in November -- 17th November from 6pm to 9pm to be precise.
Like the last one, Collabor8 4 Change is free to attend!
The format is a little different to before, but easy to understand:
In each time slot there will be around 15 concurrent table discussions for 20 minutes each, and we are planning to have up to 5 sessions. That means a choice of up to 75 discussion topics in theory -- although some people may wish to run their discussion more than once. For that reason, if you're considering running a table session, get in quick! Table sessions should show examples of ICT used to develop classroom practice from a leadership perspective. Some of the topics covered last time, to give you an idea, were:
- Moving your primary school to the clouds
- ICT to support Student Voice
- Getting them thinking - easy ideas that engage all learners
- Does technical change create barriers to adoption?
You can see more by scrolling down this page until you reach the Free Tables section. If you'd like to run a session and you're in any doubt whatsoever about whether your topic would be acceptable, click on "Host" at the top of this page, and fire off an enquiry by email.
Would you like to host a table session? Because the theme of this "unconference" is collaboration, you will not be expected to talk for 20 minutes, but to introduce the theme, say a few points, and let the dicussion flow, with a wrap-up at the end.
To host a table session, register for a ticket and complete the relevant sections of the form.
This time, there will also be an opportunity for people to speak/rant about their pet topic for 10 minutes, in a separate room.
If you would like to speak for 10 minutes please complete the appropriate sections of the registration form.
There is nothing to prevent your attending as a delegate, running a table session, and having a 10 minute rant. Just indicate your preferences during the registration process.
In order to attend the event, you must have a ticket. If you are not successful in obtaining a ticket, do not despair: your name will be put on a waiting list, and you will be emailed if a ticket becomes available.
By registering for a ticket, you agree to allow the C84C organisers to contact you about this event of future events. Don't worry: we're not going to bombard you with spam.
Please tell people about this event! The hashtag for Twitter is #C84C; the tag for Technorati is C84C.

7 things you can do right now
- Register. How about putting yourself forward to host table session and/or give a 10 minute talk? We will also need people to help out on the night, in all sorts of ways, so you could put yourself down for that as well. Sponsoring is very much needed because this event is free. So, if you are interested in being a sponsor, indicate that when you register. You can register in all of these capacities -- or, of course, simply as a delegate.

When & Where
Description of your organisation
We're not scheduling any more speakers or table hosts, at least for the time being. You may submit a proposal if you wish, but you will be placed on a reserve list.
But we're still accepting more delegates even though 80 people have registered already! So what are you waiting for?!
Information about the programme will be posted soon, so watch this space, or subscribe to the RSS feed.
We have some great sponsors, thanks to whom we will have some nice food and, as mentioned in the previous bulletin, some transport laid on. Here they are:
It's not too late to become a sponsor yourself!
Great news! Transport has been arranged between the nearest station, Dagenham East, and CEME. More details soon.
There are now more than 70 people signed up to attend, and lots of great table discussions arranged and talks being scheduled. More details of those soon too.
It's not too late to put yourself down to give a talk or run a table discussion - or, indeed, to register for the event. Remember: it's not only great professional development, it's free!
Things are going well! With over 70 people signed up to attend on an evening in the middle of the week, we're pleasantly surprised.
But we're not resting on our laurels!
Our aim is to get at least another 50 people signed up by the 14th October, plus a few more table hosts and speakers, as we'll be drawing up a table plan and schedule on the 14th.
So, please help by telling people about the event, and volunteering to lead a discussion and/or give a brief talk on the night.
Thanks in advance!
