e-Schools’ Network will be holding its 8th national teacher conference on October 2nd, 3rd and 4th 2012. This conference will cover a wide range of topics over a 3 day period during the school holidays – focusing on mobile technologies and integrating ICTs in the classroom to enrich the lives of both teacher and learner.

We will be running presentations and hands-on workshops and will be introducing new technologies to teachers and discussing the importance and use of mobile technology and ICT in education.

This is an environment for teachers and educators to network with other teachers and educators and discusses the real issues associated with introducing ICT into lessons, and using it as an effective teaching tool.
