The Digital School for a Digital World

Our children and young people are growing up in an increasingly digitised world. Every aspect of their future lives will feel the impact of new technologies. So shouldn’t their school reflect this?

The E2BN conference 2017 focuses on the use of digital technologies across the whole school – in the classroom, in the staff room and in the school office. It’s always a great two day event. There’s something for anyone interested in raising educational standards through the use of technology – teachers, senior leaders, technical staff, local authority employees and school governors.

The conference is a fantastic CPD opportunity with inspiring and motivational keynote speakers and 26 different workshop sessions to choose from.

The exhibition area has a relaxed, informal atmosphere with plenty of opportunity for networking, one to one discussions and demonstrations. You have the experts on hand so you can get some great advice and you can often grab yourself a bargain!

The conference brings together:

  • 400 Dedicated Educators
  • 70 Great Exhibitors
  • 26 Fantastic Workshops
  • 4 Inspirational Speaker

All of this over two fabulous days to create one brilliant CPD event!

In partnership with E2BN, if you work in education we are able to offer you a free delegate place.

Spice up your staff room with TrilbyTV Tweet Feeds

By , Director

Posted: in News
At the 2017 BETT Education show we launched our new Twitter Feed feature. This means a school entering their Twitter address into TrilbyTV will see their Tweets appear full screen and animated on their digital signage. It’s a feature that our schools love and some have started to use to provide education specific information and light weight CPD in their staff rooms. Malmesbury C of E Primary School is a large, vibrant and very busy two form entry primary school. To develop team sprit and morale as well as providing current and up to date information around educational thinking the school is using the TrilbyTV Twitter Feed Feature. Tweets from those such as TES, DfE and their own school Twitter Feed means staff are kept up to date with whats happening both inside and outside the school Deputy Head Teacher Dan Oakes told TrilbyTV “Staff feel more informed as TrilbyTV allows a continual drip feeding of relevant information to all members of staff” At TrilbyTV we are always thinking of ways our schools can enhance their digital signage. Our new Twitter Feed Feature is a great way to liven up staff rooms keeping everyone engaged and up to date

We are excited to announce a brand new feature to TrilbyTV – Twitter Feeds. Our mission to switch on your signage means looking at where your content is and making it super easy to get it on your screens. Today we’re marching forward on our mission allowing you to get more of your content on your screens. We’ve made it really simple to set up, just click on the Menu button top right and choose Add Twitter Feed, enter your @username and click Add! Your dynamic Twitter clip will be added to your Video feed just like a video and can be included in any of your Categories or playlists. We suggest the first Twitter Feed you add is your @school_username which means you’ll always have up-to-date content on your screen. Twitter feed functionality will require an update to your player apps and will be available for Android, iOS and Chrome players on 1st Feb 2017. AppleTV playback of Twitter feeds is coming soon. We would love to hear your feedback on this feature so we can extend it further and make it even more useful to you.

Embedded Players are great for projects

TrilbyTV already offers simple sharing of individual videos with our Public Access tools, letting you share a video page by link or QR code, or embed a single video on your own website. But what if you have a group of videos in a project? We’re pleased to introduce Embedded Players. Embedded Players let you create a web-based player for a specific set of videos.
