Professor Stephen Heppell’s talk Shoeless and Sausages: Making Learning Better was the first in the Talk BU Live series.
It received a great reception from the audience in Dylan’s Bar, with entertaining insights and ideas around incorporating technology into learning. The talk was recorded and you can view it on BU's YouTube channel.
Stephen provided an insight into what the future has to offer the world of education and how children can benefit when educators keep up with the ever-evolving worlds of education and technology,
Speaking about his Talk BU experience, Stephen said: “For me, watching everyone’s faces as we dashed playfully from the design of school toilets and chairs, to levels of light and CO2, it was rather like watching the sun come out.
“A roomful of smiling faces, lit up by BU research, felt pretty good!”
