    This program will look at:

    This is an online conference for teachers to look at how technology may change the direction of teaching and learning in our schools. Teachers doing outstanding work have been selected to present at this conference to help participants explore the possibilities for ustilising different methods of instructions and organising access to resources and learning tasks.

    This conference focuses on the "how" of implementing these strategies in the classroom rather than the "why" or "should we?" questions that often dominate educational technology discussion and training.
