Venue: Kingswood Primary School, Dingley Village
The conference will be held throughout the school with Keynote presentations in our multi-purpose hall. Taking onboard feedback from last year, we have significantly reduced the number of exhibitors so that we can provide a larger networking space, a higher calibre of Keynote Speakers, a hands on area with devices including the Oculus Rift, unrestricted internet on the day and a new audio/visual system for the school. 


Attending external professional development sessions outside of schools are generally prohibitive due to costs. This conference is aimed at classroom teachers, coordinators and school leaders who would like to be inspired about how to use ICT effectively and efficiently as a teaching and learning tool in schools. The only truth we know is that ALL jobs in the future will require the use of technology. Are you prepared as an educator to do what is required to prepare your students for THEIR future?
The calibre of the Keynote presenters this year is extremely high with everyone recognised internationally or across Australia for their contributions to education or communication in a digital age. We are pleased to welcome 2 invited speakers from the USA and Canada and Australia's own Cosentino to come and speak about his powerful learning journey as a student who experienced learning difficulties and how he empowered himself to overcome all obstacles. 

Feedback from Our 2014 Conference

"Was a really great conference. To be honest was really well organised with a range of different experiences."

"It was a fantastic conference. I felt that I got more out of it than the ICTEV conference, so well done. The challenge for 2015 will be to offer new presentations so that 2014 attendees will want to return."

"I thought the conference was fantastic and very well organised."

"Longer! I wanted to go to more sessions and couldn't be in two places at once. I'd suggest more repeat presentation and a fifth or even sixth session."
