Event description

Description

As our world becomes increasingly digital and the pace of change driven by technology continues to increase, how do we stay on top of the latest developments and educate ourselves in this new digital world? From educating our children for a world that doesn’t yet exist to teaching the existing population on all things digital, this month’s talks seek to provide some answers. This month's speakers are:

Danny Windsor, Head Boy & Business Manager at Giant Campus


Danny heads up one of Kent’s newest and most exciting businesses in Giant Campus. With the objective of bridging the gap in digital skills for smaller businesses, Giant Campus delivers a modern approach to digital education and challenges most preconceptions on what professional training is. Danny will be speaking through the rationale behind Giant Campus, the gaps in digital skills in the UK and particularly Kent, and what all businesses can do to bridge that gap.

Donna Comerford, Education Technology Specialist


Donna brings together Creative Computing, Arts, Culture, Heritage, Innovation and Enterprise. With an established career in teaching and youth work, Donna will share how technology does and will affect our future generations. Donna works as a freelance Education Technology Consultant and is currently teaching and running workshops for the National Citizen service (NCS) where she creates and delivers interactive workshops about opportunities available in creative and cultural industries for young people. Donna is also the Education Coordinator for Brighton Digital Festival, is a STEM Ambassador & was a MOZFest 2015 volunteer.

The event runs from 6:30 - 8.00pm, with free tea, coffee and biscuits available throughout. We run the Kent Collective like a mini TEDx talk but with a social twist, giving plenty of opportunity to meet like-minded people and discuss the topic with each other both before and after the talks.
