Ed Tech Central West NSW Conference


Over 800 teachers from the Central West region of NSW gathered in the beautiful town of Orange for a day of learning about ICT in Education with a focus on creativity.

I had the privilege of being the main keynote presenter and with so many teachers in one place, the keynote was run twice with over 400 in each session.

For most of the teachers, it was the first time they had heard of the work of Seymour Papert, Sir Ken Robinson, Dr Alan Kay and Professor Mitch Resnick – the gurus of ICT & creativity in Education. The topic was Creativity in Education is no longer an option, it is an absolute necessity and all my slides are available on the Adobe Education Exchange via http://bit.ly/adobe24April17

Jerry Wong (Adobe Customer Success Manager), Jane Chen (Adobe Solutions Consultant) and Bill Gillespie (Adobe Education Leader) joined me for this event. Jane ran four sessions on ePortfolios with Adobe Acrobat, it was her first Adobe workshop with educators. Bill ran sessions on Adobe Spark.

I’d like to congratulate Geoff Childs and Andrew Hetherington (both leading the Teaching and eLearning – Central West Principals Network) for organising such a successful event.
