Real-World Learning Live! is a four-day digital event that connects The Day's user community and some of the educators and thinkers that inspire us. Speakers' topics include information and misinformation, how to create a confident and happy classroom, using the news to develop debating skills, the value of project-based learning and case studies for using The Day to support literacy and SEN.

The Day provides schools with classroom-ready news stories and related activities. The Day builds cultural capital by explaining the news and linking it to the UK and IB curriculums. It is designed to support literacy (with multiple reading levels), oracy (through topical discussion topics), critical thinking, news literacy and a positive mental attitude with a range of activities from short lesson starters to full-scale debates. Above all, The Day helps nurture the global citizens of the future by giving pupils an insight into other people's experiences and dilemmas around the world.

Join us at Real-World Learning Live! to share your experience of bringing the news into the classroom.
