ICT for Education Conference

The ICT for Education Conference 2010 in Belfast will field an impressive line up of speakers addressing the issues facing those responsible for using ICT to achieve the highest educational standards and most effective environment in UK schools.

With technology such a key force behind the transformation of our educational landscape, ICT is all pervasive in the building of schools, the preparation and delivery of lessons and the management of schools. ICT has changed our behaviour, raised our expectations and contributed to the greater inclusion of parents, governors, administrators and children in the education system.

The ICT for Education Conference programme will look at how successful schools use ICT within an educational framework and with clear objectives, managing technology rather than being managed by technology. Topics for discussion will include: literacy, learning and well-being through gaming, social networking and mobile technology - behaviour management - parental engagement - safeguarding pupils - the next generation of VLEs - collaborative, project based learning - inspired learning space design

There will also be an exhibition for ICT suppliers and vendors as well as related organisations and charities, which will run from 8am until 4pm. Delegates can visit between the conference sessions (which start at 10am) and during refreshment breaks and lunch.
