A huge thank you to all the presenters who gave up their time to record and share their presentations for this online event.  The aim of this was to bring the brilliant CPD of researchED conferences to locked down teachers in their homes, during the coronavirus outbreak  The presenters are the people who make an event like this and I am extremely grateful to each and every one of them:

Tom Bennett and the researchED team will be sharing a whole series of videos, including the ones recorded for our event, on @researchEDhome over the coming weeks.  A video presentation will be shared at 11.00am every weekday, kicking off on 20th April.

Furthermore, many of the presenters will be posting their presentation on their blogs – keep an eye out.

Finally, a reminder that an important reason for doing this was to raise money for the NHS during the coronavirus pandemic. See below for links to external NHS donation sites (not connected to Durrington or researchED in any way).

Feed the NHS – Crowdfunding. #feedNHS

NHS Charities COVID19 – Urgent Appeal

PPE for the NHS – crowdfunder 

**BREAKING NEWS** –  A new donation page – the male science teachers at Durrington High School (my SChool) are growing a moustache in support of the NHS for #MOVID19.  You can make a donation and support them here.

We’ll be back again next year – either physically or virtually or both!

Thanks again and see you all soon.

Stay safe
