Hosts:

Fran Abrams has written hundreds of thousands of words for national newspapers and broadcasters, along with five factual books. She now the Chief Executive of the Education Media Centre and continues to write for the national media on a freelance basis.
Karen Jones, from Pedroza Communications, is a social media expert who helps education organisations to use social media effectively to engage with their audiences. She regularly undertakes training as well as providing strategic and tactical support. Prior to working in social media, she spent more than 20 years working in FE as a lecturer in media studies and creative media production.
Pedroza Communications has recently formed a partnership with EMC under which the charity will introduce supporters to Pedroza, and in return will receive 10 per cent of everything they spend on the company’s services. This in turn will help EMC step up its work in ensuring the best evidence about what works in education gets to those who can use it.
All participants will be given a simple, clear structure to follow when writing their first blog, and will receive written notes afterwards to help them to put what they’ve learned into action.

About The Education Media Centre:

The centre is a charity devoted to ensuring journalists have good evidence about what works in education – and it’s run by some of the UK’s most respected and experienced education correspondents.
These popular seminars are aimed at those whose work involves communicating about education topics, but who feel they could benefit from some advice and support. The sessions focus on helping participants write in an engaging and informative way for a range of audiences.
