Hosted by award-winning* education technology specialists Frog, secondary school leaders across the country are invited to attend this free conference packed with interactive workshops run by the UK’s most inspiring schools. Every presenter is dedicated to giving forward-thinking school leaders the knowledge, tools and enthusiasm to engage the whole school community through ICT and meet the Government’s 2010 real-time reporting targets now.

Opening the event is keynote speaker Sir Dexter Hutt, former Headteacher of Ninestiles School, now Chief Executive of Ninestiles Plus, which works with the Government and Local Authorities to improve struggling schools. Knighted for services to education in 2004, his current responsibilities include being Executive Leader of the Hastings Federation to fast-track improvement of three Hastings secondary schools.

This conference is like no other and will provide leaders with everything they need to know about how schools have successfully embedded learning platforms and parental engagement platforms, the whys and why not’s, together with the tools and inspiration to achieve great results.  Frog is urging schools to provide a genuinely engaging experience for parents. The team will be available to discuss how Frog’s Parental Engagement Portal already meets the Government targets for 2010. Its easy-to-use interface, similar to today’s popular social networking sites, has been created to present everything parents need to know in a familiar format, providing real-time integration with schools’ management information systems and enabling schools to control which information parents can see.
