2022 ITE Conference – NSW

It was such a pleasure to do a face to face keynote presentation at the 2022 NSW Institute of Education conference at the Sydney Masonic Centre on Thursday 17th March.

About 300 teachers from a range of technology areas and NSW regions attended this event. Adobe Educatuon Leader Craig Daalmier-Power and I also ran four workshop sessions over two days covering applications such as Adobe Animate, Character Animator, Photoshop and Premiere Pro.

During the keynote, I introduced them to the new Adobe Creative Cloud Express and received lots of positive comments throughout the event relating to how these tools can be used in a range of curriculum areas.

I would like to congratulate the ITE Conference committee for organising such a such a successful event especially following all the floods and COVID related issues that have faced NSW schools this year.

Here are some images from the Character Animator workshop …
