On Friday afternoon, there will be 4 practical groups available to you. Each participant may join 1 group.
These 4 groups will run in 2 timeslots concurrently with Jamie Williams' second presentation, with 2 of the groups running in the first timeslot (approx 13:00 - 13:50) and the second 2 groups running in the second timeslot (approx 14:05 - 14:55). Jamie will also run his second presentation twice in the same timeslots, which means that everyone has the possibility to attend his presentation and 1 practical group.

Please sign up for 1 practical session only! It would make sense for school groups to spread out across the groups, so that a variety of tools may be taken back after the PD day. There are up to 12 places available per practical session - please remember to bring your laptop (whether you are from AIS or not) to the PD day, there will be internet access provided for particpants from other schools through our guestnett.


Groups 1 and 2 will run from approx 13:00 - 13:50
