ACEC2012 in Perth is fast approaching and the Perth team members are very excited about the way things are developing.

ACEC2012, our premier Australian ICT in Education event, will have a very strong international component, featuring six keynote addresses by international speakers in addition to the presentations by the four Australian major speakers. ISTE, the International Society for Technology in Education, is bringing a group of US educators to Perth for ACEC2012, and the early response to the ‘Call for Papers’ from both international and Australasian academics has also been exciting.
