Post-Event Update for Delegates:

Students @ ECIS TECH CONF

******************************************************************

In developing the conference theme, we felt it was important to provoke and engage delegates into thinking beyond the accepted. In return, attendees found an event where powerful keynote speakers, collaborative breakout sessions, and hands-on experiences collided to further the integration of IT in education.

Leadership day - Thursday 14th March
In addition to the main conference there was a Leadership Day on Thursday 14th March for Heads of School, Principals, Department Heads, IT Directors, Managers and Coordinators.  The Leadership Day offered delegates a rare opportunity to engage in a series of round table discussions led by experts in implementing a 1:1/mobile device IT Strategy in schools.

Main conference – Friday 15th & Saturday 16th March
The two main conference days offered delegates 4 powerful keynote speakers, opportunities to see IT integration in action through classroom tours, and stimulating break-out sessions debating the key issues around our theme:

  • ‘That was then. This is now.’ Accentuating the generation change from baby boomers to bloggers – benefits, challenges, etc.
  • Technology – driver or enabler?
  • The role of IT in redefining schools of the future where students are more in control of the style and content of their own learning
  • The role of Social Media in technology and learning
  • Information at your fingertips – an advantage or a distraction
  • Data access and storage – the challenges
  • What's next – How do we keep up?
