Tipperary Institute Conference

The seventh ICT in Education Conference will be hosted by Tipperary Institute this May. This year’s theme is “Storytelling in Education”. Everyone remembers their outstanding school teachers and their clever lecturers from college days. In many cases, these educators shared stories, memories and vignettes in the classroom. For centuries, people have listened and learned and no matter how technology has advanced, when we peel back all the accessories, a quality lesson often revolves around a compelling storyline. During the 2011 ICT in Education Conference, several master storytellers will share their experiences and insights in a day-long event.

The format will be similar to last year with a number of plenary sessions, prior to breaking out into smaller, more focused workshop/talks. There is a very strong line-up of speakers this year. Christian Payne, Ciaran McCormack and Dermot Casey are onboard to deliver keynote and capstone presentations along with a whole host of interesting educational workshops. More information on the range of conference speakers is HERE.

The conference takes place in the Tipperary Institute, Nenagh Road, Thurles, Co. Tipperary on Saturday May 14th, 2011 from 9am to 4pm. The conference fee is €30. Registration is now open online. More information is available on the Conference Homepage.
