Our good friends at CESI are busy organising the CESI National Conference which will take place on 12th and 13th February 2010. The conference entitled “Creative Technology in Challenging Times” will highlight the varied and creative ways teachers are using ICT to enhance teaching and learning at primary and post primary level. To do this, the organisers are looking for practioners from primary, post primary and third level to either present for 30 minutes or run a Workshop for 60 minutes. To get an idea of last year’s presentations and workshops, you should go to www.cesi.ie/conference. If you are interested in presenting at the conference, you should email email@example.com on or before Thursday, 12th November. In turn CESI will respond to each proposal by Friday, 27th November.
CESI, founded in 1973, promotes the use of ICT in education at all levels in the Irish Education System. It is a voluntary body that draws its members from primary, post primary and third level teachers. Attendance at the conference is open to all teachers whether experienced or not in the use of ICT. If you don’t feel like presenting, you’re more than welcome to go along. In the meantime, why not consider joining CESI and adding your voice to educators with an interest in ICT in education.
