Just a quick post about Great British Story, HLF grants and an EdTech conference

1. The BBC Great British Story roadshow is in St Ffagan’s, Cardiff, Saturday 16 June 2012.

2. Attending will be representatives of ‘All Our Stories’. There are grants of £3,000 – £10,000 available to from Heritage Lottery Fund for UK organisations “Using collections like archives, libraries and museums, including collections held by people in the community – and – Recording things like people’s memories … scanning old photographs and documents…”
Now that sounds like an interesting source of money for digital storytelling projects. Spread the word.

3. Here’s some news of a free event in Cardiff on 26 June I heard of via Dysg’s excellent e-newsletter, mailed out every week by Rhys Davies: “Technology Working for Wales: 26 June 2012 – Free one day event, Hilton Hotel Cardiff.  JISC RSC Wales’ Summer Conference this year focuses on the twin priorities of cost efficiency and employability, and looks at how technology can help the post-16 sector in Wales to do more with less whilst enhancing the future employability of learners.”

4. FilmClub Cymru has just received a grant (select language) of just over £0.25 million from the Welsh Government to continue its educational activities in schools here in Wales.
