Conferences are great opportunities for our SEQTA team to meet more teachers and school leaders. These conversations provide us with even greater insight into how we can serve the teachers in our community.
SEQTA attended and presented at the FutureSchools Expo at the Australian Technology Park in Sydney on March 11 and March 12.
FutureSchools Expo hosted approximately 1500 attendees, 80 speakers and 80 + stands with products and services featuring the latest in technology for education. There was tremendous energy as teaching professionals gathered to share and learn from speakers and one another. Case studies were used to look strategically at the future of education with a focus on the changes to the physical learning spaces and of course the virtual learning environment.
SEQTA’s National Solutions Manager, Chris Marley, presented to an enthusiastic group. Understanding the priorities of his audience, Chris entitled his presentation ‘How to track a student’s progress via one screen’. He explained that even with the very best of intentions, technologies created to assist teachers were actually creating more work by silo-ing information. Chris then demonstrated that in contrast, SEQTA allowed our teachers to see all they needed to see via just one screen.
SEQTA will once again be at EduTECH, the biggest conference on the Australian education calendar. If you’re there, please make sure you pop in and introduce yourself – we would love to see you there.
This is an important conference for Christian educators around Australia and beyond who wish to explore Christian education in 2015. The theme for this years conference is ‘Reading Word and World: memes, themes, and Biblical dreams’. SEQTA will be hosting a booth for the two days – so make sure you come and say hello.
Conference organisers IWBNet have very generously offered significant discounts to SEQTA schools who wish to send delegates to this conference.
The Conference is a tightly focused professional development for school leaders and classroom teachers (K-12). Wherever you are on the continuum of the 3 mega themes; BYOT, Flipping Learning and Change now, you will find this conference invaluable. You may be thinking of implementing the themes in your school, you may have just started, you may be a long way down the path, or you may wish to propose alternative points of view and contribute to the debate around these topics.
