itslearning is proudly home-grown in Bergen, Norway, the city between the seven mountains in Western Norway. This fact is not lost on Bergen Mayor Trude Drevland, who gave the opening speech at an education conference held at VilVite (Bergen Science Centre).
itslearning Norway Sales Manager Arild Pedersen was in the right place at the right time and snapped the above shot with the mayor. “After her opening speech Drevland wandered around the exhibition stands. When she saw itslearning she headed to our stand straight away and said, ‘We are really proud of itslearning. So we have to take a picture with them!” Arild said.
The theme of this year’s conference, which itslearning co-sponsors, is ‘Learning in a digital society’. The audience mainly comprises school managers and teachers from junior and high school. Bergen teacher Terje Pedersen will present ‘Learning in the extended classroom with itslearning' while itslearning trainer Stine Gaaseide Liseth will address ‘Student-centred assessment with a learning platform.’
