We are delighted to present our first ever SuperCloud Conference on November 1st.

The Conference has been designed to introduce schools to how cloud technology can be effectively implemented whilst considering key factors that determine successful outcomes. As part of LGfL’s #Pledge2020 commitment to schools, providing faster broadband connections will facilitate the demand of cloud platforms.

A Cloud-based learning environment has the potential to help tackle the teacher workload, invigorate the curriculum and help with the work-life balance without being to much of a monumental change for a school to adopt new ways of thinking, working and learning.

The conference will be held in the heart of the City at etc. venues St. Pauls, where we are running a series of valuable sessions FREE to all LGfL staff.

Our Keynotes include:

  • Microsoft in Education: Accessibility for All
  • Google for Education: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
  • Adobe Creative Cloud: The Power of Creativity
  • Amazon Web Services: Equipping the Future Workforce
  • ICT with Mr P: Raising Standards with Cloud Technology

Unlocking Creativity with Paint 3D

Whether you’re an artist or just want to try out some doodles, Paint 3D makes it easy to unleash your creativity and bring your ideas to life!

With Windows 10, you have a new, free, built-in app called Paint 3D that allows you to create models beyond basic 2D design, giving an experience to, create, edit and share in a new dimension. Make 3D masterpieces and scenes, all with a stroke of your digital pen or touch.  You can also access an online 3D community, Remix 3D, to find, use and remix models from within the Paint 3D app itself! Even more, you can drop your creation into the real world with the mixed reality viewer, bring immersive experiences to students and their learning environment. Imagine creating a 3D model of a World War Two fighter plane and placing it in the classroom for students to explore. The impossible made possible!

Manipulate shape and colour in a whole new dimension with the easy and simplicity of the Paint we know and love! You can even change a 2D image into a 3D object. Start by creating objects, which you can rotate and see from every side, then add a splash of colour with the new and improved brushes, such as transparent watercolour or oil brushes so real that you can see the paint smudging.
