Apple is staging a free one-day conference for the UK's education community.

Called "Using digital assets to enhance teaching and learning", the event takes place on July 16. It is being presented by Apple and Canon in association with the government's technology-in-education organization, Becta. It runs in Cambridge between 10am-3.30pm.

This event is aimed at LEA advisors, regional broadband suppliers, specialist schools, higher education institutions and education policy makers. The conference will explore how digital assets can be distributed across broadband networks and integrated into teaching, learning and content creation.

It will also mark the first public airing of Becta's "Teaching and Learning with digital video assets" 50-school pilot programme, which is designed to develop best practises for the use of media-rich resources.

Registration for the event is open only to education professionals.
