After all of the excitement of the CESI Conference 2012, I am now turning my attention to the pulling together of the ICT in Edcuation conference in May, which will hopefully be as invigorating and inspiring for attendees. The next few months will be filled with calls for presenters, registrations, promoting the event and finally the culmination of it all – the CESI Meet and ICT in Education conference on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th May 2012.
At this stage we have confirmed keynote speakers Ira Socol and Pam Moran. This keynote line up will be supplemented in the coming weeks so watch out for updates at http://www.lit.ie/ictedu. But now the real work begins, to put together a programme, which will build on the energy and enthusiasm of the keynote presentations, and give attendees workshops and presentations which will provide practical ways in which they can weave technology into their learning spaces. For me, the real strength of a conference, is the combination of inspirational keynote presentations, which challenge you to reflect on what you do, and the breakout workshops and presentations, which support you to make changes to how you do it. And so my simple plea to you is this: if you are planning to come to the conference, and are doing something in your learning space that you think might be beneficial to others, please consider presenting at our conference. The call for presenters will be put out in the next few days so get your thinking caps on!!
Post publishing note: Call for presenters for ICT in Education now open. Closing date for submissions is Friday 30th March.
