Working with researchED to share the latest education research from their National Conference
ONVU Learning uses video to help teachers become better – and we think there’s no better way to demonstrate this by using our technology expertise to support researchED, the grassroots teacher-led organisation that is changing the way educationalists across the world think.
Founded in 2013 by teacher Tom Bennett, researchED has grown to become a global network of conferences from South Africa to New Zealand, Sweden to the USA. On September 8th this year they will hold their largest event to date with over 1,300 delegates coming to Harris Secondary Academy in St John’s Wood, London, to take part in the UK National Conference with over 90 sessions with academics, politicians and serving teachers.
But with places limited and most events taking place on Saturdays, there’s a huge demand from those who can’t attend to see what is happening, read about speakers’ research and contact them.
So in June ONVU Learning took over a room at researchED Rugby and started interviewing delegates and broadcasting their thoughts and websites via Twitter. The videos were watched over 22,500 times by an audience many times bigger than the 400 delegates who could be physically present, with over 1,500 people following up the Tweets to find out more about speakers. And we’re doing this again on 8th September. Follow @ONVULearning on Twitter for more highlights, bookmark this page, or sign up here for our newsletter to get a report from after the event.
