Work experience opportunity with Futurelab
There is an exciting opportunity for you and a small number of students to work with Futurelab over the coming year. As part of the Greater Expectations project we are looking for 10 small groups of Infocow ‘partners’. These groups will work with us to help develop and manage our brand new resource ‘Infocow’. We are looking for groups of between three or six students aged 14-19, who will need to be supported by a teacher or mentor. The group will be involved from late March 2010. Please contact Kieron Kirkland kieron.kirkland@futurelab.org.ukfor more details

Learning spaces open day – 16 March, Bristol

The event includes stimulating talks from researchers and designers, open discussions and participatory techniques like hands-on design. Schools are invited to bring along 10 to 15 pupils to take part in the day. Places are limited.

Conflab – Futurelab conference consultation
If you could create the most exciting, inspiring and useful education conference, what would it involve? Who would be there and what would it be about? This year’s Futurelab conference – planned for late Autumn 2010 – will allow you to create just that, your ideal conference. And we’re taking a new approach – called conflab – to create the most useful and inspirational event. So we’re looking for your ideas and suggestions for themes and we’ll then use our networks and resources to bring you your conference.
Send us your ideas… http://www.futurelab.org.uk/events/listing/conflab
