ACEC2012 in Perth is fast approaching and the Perth team members are very excited about the way things are developing.
ACEC2012, our premier Australian ICT in education conference, will have a strong international component, featuring six international keynote addresses alongside four prominent Australian speakers. ISTE is bringing a group of US educators to Perth for ACEC2012, and the early response to the Call for Papers from both international and Australasian academics has also been exciting.
The conference theme is ITS Time: Information Technology in Schools Time. The conference will examine the diverse ways that ICT can maximise each student's potential through their personal learning styles. It will investigate how ICT can allow all people including those with diverse skills and thinking strategies become lifelong creative learners. We aim to include a broad range of contributions to make ACEC2012 in Perth a conference to remember.
