ICT in Education Conference 2011 at the Tipperary Institute

2010 Conference Picture

The ICT in Education Annual Conference takes place each year in Thurles, Tipperary.  They host a number of excellent lectures and workshops with the ethos that it is for teachers by teachers.  This year’s keynote and capstone speakers are: Christian Payne, Ciaran McCormack and Dermot Casey.

There will be a number of workshops on blogging, Scratch, Edmodo, Game-based Learning and a couple on Twitter.  The great thing about the talks and lectures is that they are pitched at a level that is accessible to everyone.

A number of interesting events take place during this conference.

The night before the main event, CESI, (Computers in Education Society of Ireland), host their famous CESI Meet.  There’ll be dozens of fellow teachers talking about things they do in their classrooms.  Even better is that the talks last from 2 to 15 minutes so if a talk doesn’t suit you, you don’t have long to wait until the next one!

After the great success of Digital Art Week, the images created by children all over Ireland will be displayed throughout the conference.  This is a great achievement for all the children involved.

There’s always a number of interesting surprises that come down the line so come down to Tipperary for a great weekend of learning.

The ICT in Education Conference takes place on Saturday 14th May.  For more information, please visit their web site http://www.tippinst.ie/schools. You can also follow them on Twitter with the username @ictedu
