Learning Technology consultant Abdul Chohan was lead for the digital learning strategy at the Essa Academy, a school situated in a challenging and low socio-economic location in Bolton, UK. Each student possessing an iOS device with tailored lesson plans, learning outcomes have been measurably improved and continue to show improvement. Abdul also co-founded the very successful ‘Olive Tree Primary Free School’ in Bolton, UK that utilises the same mobile based learning approaches.

Abdul Chohan shares his thoughts on the importance of leadership when it comes to newly arrived refugees and their learning, and will be joined by former student Gulwali Passarlay to explain how a failing school can turn into a school with a current passing rate over 95%.

Gulwali Passarlay is a final year Politics student at the University of Manchester, who arrived in the UK at the age of 13 as a political refugee. He has written a Award Winning Book ”The Lightless Sky”, about an Afghan refugees boy’s journey of escape to a new life in Britain.

Abdul Chohan, an award-winning Learning Technology consultant based in the UK, has pioneered the embedded use of learning technologies for students and teachers alike.
