Voices in Education
The ICT in Education conference is held on the Thurles campus of the Limerick Institute of Technology in May of each year.
The conference provides an opportunity for educators across all levels to connect and share. The ethos of the conference is “by teachers, for teachers”. It has grown in popularity over the years and now attracts attendees from primary, secondary and third level as well as adult and community education. The conference is a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in integrating technology into their teaching and learning to meet with others to learn and to share.
Teachers attending the 2018 ICT in Education Conference will discover a “Voices in Education” theme running through the presentations and workshops. Keynote speakers include Barney Brown and Joanna Norton. The conference showcases case studies, workshops and keynote addresses to amplify effective methods teachers, lecturers and practitioners use to enhance the resonance and reach of their own best practice and to energise voices in creative classrooms and online activities. The day-long event provides a place where enthusiastic educators can meet in person, sustaining relationships that span across three levels of education.
Continuing an important @ictedu tradition, a pre-conference Maker Meet takes place on Friday April 27th. This meet utilises problem based and project based learning with an emphasis on hands on, collaborative learning.
