Friday, 13th December 2019

12:30pm - 4:00pm

Rockingham PDC, Roughwood Road, Rotherham, S61 4HY

Complimentary buffet and refreshments. Free on-site parking.

Event Overview

With Rotherham Schools Connect recently announcing they will be discontinuing their digital services for schools, this event will focus on the many ways you can transition away from them smoothly, with talks covering a variety of alternative solutions to the council run services. Talks from Arbor, Connect-Up, School Spider, Access Group, and Studysafe will cover a variety of topics and solutions including broadband and filtering, SIMS/MIS, financial systems, school websites and parent payment and communications.

About the EdTech Showcase

The Studysafe EdTech Showcase is an opportunity to explore modern alternatives to school management software. At these events we invite leading EdTech companies to showcase their software, and explain how they think it can benefit you school. 

We understand that choosing providers for digital services in schools can be a daunting task. These events are designed to help you make a choice, and inform you about the alternatives available rather than try to impose a specific solution on you. 

At each event, experts with experience working in schools and deploying a variety of different solutions will be on hand to offer guidance and advice, explain which platforms work well with each other, and to help you make up your own mind.

Who Should Attend?

This event is intended for school leaders or business managers, or anyone from a school with an interest in improving their digital services. Digital services encompass everything from your schools internet connection, to their financial system, MIS and even their website and payment solutions.
