The annual conference of the Computers in Education Society of Ireland will take place in Portlaoise on February 24th and 25th, 2012. The theme for this year's conference is TEACHnology: merging teaching and technology in schools. The CESI conference is a calendar highlight for those who are interested in integrating technology into their teaching and learning and this year promises to uphold the high standard that has been set by previous CESI events. You can view some of the highlights from last year's conference in the videos below.
CESI has promoted the use of ICT in education at all levels in the Irish Education System since 1973. It is a voluntary body that draws its members from primary, post primary and third level teachers. The CESI conference is generously supported by Teachers Professional Networks (http://www.tpnetworks.ie) and the National Centre for Technology in Education (http://www.ncte.ie).
Friday February 24th 2011, 7pm - 9pm
The starter event (CESImeet) on the Friday evening in the Heritage Hotel in Portlaoise will be an opportunity to pick up new ideas and network with other educators in a relaxed environment. Stay tuned to the CESI website, CESI mailing list and CESI Twitter account (@cesitweets) for further details and a call for presenters.

On Saturday 25th we move to Portlaoise College, which has been home to the CESI conference for the last two years. The blend of talks, workshops, vendors and networking opportunities which has proven so popular in previous years will again be a feature of conference 2012.
