Be Very Afraid

Professor Stephen Heppell

Be Very Afraid

Digital Jersey is very excited to be hosting Professor Heppell's highly-regarded and very successful 'Be Very Afraid' event here in Jersey, for the first time!

One irrefutable development for the future of education is the ever-increasing integration of technology. It offers extraordinary new educational opportunities for both teachers and students. Technology literacy is increasingly becoming an expectation in more and more careers.

Within the government, the Education, Skills and Culture Department have recognised the rapid pace at which technology is advancing and addressed the importance of providing a dynamic education, through the recent launch of their Vision for IT in Education. Building on this, Digital Jersey are hosting the Island’s first Be Very Afraid event. This will be an opportunity to showcase examples of student's technology work and digital progression in their learning.

Throughout the day students will have the chance to explain conversationally (it is not a conference) what they have been doing and what they have learnt.  The event will be a great platform for these 21st Century learners to demonstrate their passion for the subject, and ambitions for the future.
We hope you can attend and see some of the students' work and have a chance to chat to them and, most importantly - be, if not afraid, at least reaffirmed.
