The annual conference of the Computers in Education Society of Ireland will take place in Galway on February 28th and March 1st, 2014. The theme for this year’s conference is Spark the Imagination. 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 previous conferences 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 28th 2014, 7pm – 9pm
The starter event (TeachMeetCESI) on the Friday evening in the Clayton Hotel 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. You can see some pictures from last year’s CESImeet (now known as TeachMeetCESI) here.
