We would like to share with you a brief overview of what is happening on each day of the ACEC2014 conference. As you will see – it is a jam packed conference with something for everybody on each of the days.

We are now opening up the Masterclasses for general attendance, so if you would like to attend either the Alec Couros or Google Masterclass, then you are now able to do this without being registered as a delegate for the other days of the conference.

The ACEC Leadership forum is also now open for general attendance, allowing everyone to be involved in developing strategies to build teacher confidence and capacity for implementing the Digital Technologies curriculum across all sectors.

Pre-Conference Day

This is the day to connect with keynotes and other experienced presenters at the pre-conference masterclasses. There is also the option of taking one of two fully catered tours around some SA schools to see how IT is being used in their classrooms. After all that learning and networking, it will be time to open ACEC2014: Now IT’s Personal with the Welcome Reception at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

Day 1

Welcome to the first full day of ACEC2014! The day begins with the keynote address byAlec Couros Beyond Selfies, Likes, and Pokes: Embracing the Personal Learning Revolution. The remainder of the day is spent in break out sessions, where you can choose from over 70 sessions to personalise your program.

Day 3

The final day of ACEC2014: Now IT’s Personal, but that doesn’t mean today is going to be slower paced than the previous two. The day begins with a joint keynote with Sally-Ann Williams and Alan Noble CS + X – empowering the next generation for tomorrow’s world. Then it’s off again to the last of the breakout sessions with highlights including:
